The cost of buying a 550 without topo maps at the current exchange rate is the same as the 300, that comes without maps. The only additional cost is shipping between 30 - 50 $US

I'm still tempted to buy the unit in the US and maps in Au

Re: Garmin Oregon 500 Series with digital Camera

does anyone know is the 500 availalble here yet,and where? I rang Garmin again and there is no news on when it will be released.

we aren't in a particular hurry with either one. the gca domain is up for renewal on 21 september, so we might as well aim to effect the transfer before then.
Today being the 21st July... that gives us about 2 months :?

I rang Garmin and they would not commit to when it will be available in Aus. I have been toying with buying one from the US if it is going to be too long.

Value for money is in Brisbane

Do you think it's worth pursuing a small subsidy on the hosting by offering a 'Rackspace provided by.....' discreetly in the footer and/or in the mailout?
