Where can I get Discount Codes for my Garmin Maps Purchase?

 

Hi All,

I am travelling to Malaysia soon and I want to purchase the City Navigator Singapore/Malaysia Maps (https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=9844&pvID=30149).

As I don't have much time left, I will buy the downloadable version.

So I have two questions:

1- Do you know where can I get a Discount Code to use on the Checkout page of the Garmin website?

2- Can I buy the downloadable map for a price better than Garmin's official website from other websites?

Thanks all.

I've never seen or heard discussed any discount codes for Garmin maps.

I see the map available for $120 straight from Garmin. Do you plan to buy it pre-loaded on a SD card? If so, and if you don't plan to return, remember that you can sell the card to someone else planning a trip to Singapore and recover some of your purchase price.

I see that Amazon currently has one used copy available for under $62 (plus S&H):

or new for $116 or less:

or from eBay with a small savings off list price:

Edit--oh wait, you're going for the downloaded version. I don't see anyone offering that except Garmin at their list price. And when downloaded and installed to your GPS either in nuvi menory or a SD card, it'll be linked to your GPS serial number and not transferrable to anyone else later. Sorry, but unless someone else has a suggestion, list price and a Garmin download seem your only option if you can't wait for a pre-loaded SD card to be delivered to you.

Safe travels!

Thanks Craig.

If I have thought of it earlier I would have gone with the SD Card option. I am sure I will find great bargains on eBay.

But I have no time for that, so the Download option is the only option.

Thanks again.

Most maps are available through torrents for free BUT they are copyrighted and using them is an infringement, by law. Should you opt to go that route, they are readily available.

Bah!

My thought is, if you can afford a trip to Malaysia, you can afford the maps.

Secondly, I wouldn't want to get to a foreign country relying on maps that may leave you stranded because of inaccuracy, or incompleteness.

Thirdly, I wouldn't trust a pirated map as it may possibly give you a virus, especially if it comes as an executable.

And fourthly, we do not discuss pirated software or violations of intellectual property rights on this site.

Be careful on eBay. There is a lot a fake product out there.
