Extra Warranty


I bought my Nuvi 680 at Best Buy for 999.00 and they have an extra warranty for 99.99 for 4 years coverage.........just wondering if anyone has had experience with warranties yet?............Dave

Extended Warranty

I generally pass up the purchase of extended warranties. These are a real money maker for the stores (they pay off much more to the store than the purchaser). Your original purchase provides a 1 year warranty and if you purchase it with a credit card that provides an additional 1 year warranty (at no charge), then you have two years. By that time, your unit will probably be out of date and ready for replacement anyway.

Good Luck

My experience with Best Buy's Extended Warranty on my TV was absolutely terrible; both for me and the local shops they used to do the repairs. So far my Garmin warranty has been good. I hope that's all you need.

Extended Warranty

I agree with mkahn. After 1 or 2 years, you should know if your unit is a dud or not. The only purchase I would consider getting an extended warranty on is a big-screen plasma/lcd tv. Otherwise, I think you're wasting money.

I normally don't buy them

I normally don't buy them either but this one is supposed to cover damage from heat. Not that I would leave it in the car on purpose but on the off chance I left it there in the summer and the screen went out. Mine was a little cheaper though I think. I will try to look and comment back, though I am in jury duty and I may get brain freeze once I am done.
