go for it myself if I didn't already have two.

From the look of the box, it appears to be a used factory new unit and not a refurb.

No doubt a good deal!

Normally, no. I've purchased a dozen or more Garmin factory refurbished units over the years. Only one experienced a problem but it was promptly replaced under warranty.

Refurb Driveluxe 51's were recently selling for around $120 whereas new units were once going for close to $300.

My point in mentioning new vs refurb is, IMO, this makes the $83 eBay price is a better value. Personally, I would rather buy a used unit that was purchased as new than a used refurb. Of course, the ultimate value will depend on the actual condition of the eBay unit.

Would you spend the $7.99 for the insurance?

Interesting

Thanks. This could be a potential option if my Nuvi quits working.

I wouldn't

Personally, I wouldn't but I'm sure some would feel safer with it.
