$45 GPS

 

Heads up. Woot is offering a Motorola GPS for $45. Probably a discontinued item but the price is hard to beat. http://www.woot.com/

For those not familiar with Woot, the company offers one item for sale each day (unless there's a special Woot-Off going on) and it's only available until sold out.

Cheers

And lets not forget to mention, there is no customer support. Even if it arrives broken into two pieces they demand that you deal with the manufacturer rather than provide a refund.

May Want To Check For Reviews

If you want to buy a "cheap" GPSr, it would wise to check for reviews online. For that particular unit the overall consensus (from various review sites) is that this unit is not all that great. Spend the extra $ and get a reputable and reliable unit.

You get what you paid for. GPS are so cheap these days, might as well spend just a little more and get yourself a nice one.

Yeah

Yeah, bought from a brick and mortar with exchange/return privileges.

Yes, I agreed with above

Yes, I agreed with above users "What get you you paid for".
e.g. COBY vs. SONY

Why those units are cheap? Gotta have a few reasons... they either discontinued because outdated or too much flaws.... Or they could be cheap clones from real unit.

My suggestion is if you can afford the top rated units, go for it. Unless you are really tight on budget & you don't care the quality... & you need a basic unit.

Different people different point of view. e.g. I can see "3". But you'll say "E" if you are facing to me. It doesnt mean that you are wrong. You are right in your own way smile

Take care. God Bless.

From the WOOT! FAQ:


How do I return a defective product?

Unless we specifically tell you not to, call the manufacturer of the product you bought. You will likely get a replacement of a new model or better item from them. If we still haven't dissuaded you, email rma@woot.com with your woot order number, the name of the product you are returning, and the detailed problem with the item. We will respond with return authorization by the next business day. Because we aren't likely to have a replacement in stock, you should be prepared for a refund-only option if that's all we can do. Know that return freight will be at your expense. Again, you will probably get a better deal from the manufacturer, or whoever else handling member service for that product.

My $0.02: For the value you get and the general super cleverness of the site, I am more than willing to pass on the "old school" customer service. But that is just me...
