I hear this has a downloadable map pack for finding the missing Big o' Cosmos from the Woot-off.

Amazon has it for $112. I've seen this at the big blue box for $149.

Does this come with lifetime map updates or would we have to buy them?

I have one of these. It works fantastic! Fast updates and prompt notice... Just don't forget to update your maps every three moths or so!

I have one of these, it is awesome when you are going through a city and you do not know what lane to get in. This tells you were to go.. Its sweet.

Amazon lists it at $169, new, so this is a pretty good deal (assuming it works equally well in its refurbished state).

Lane assist sounds interesting - but is it accurate or realistically useful? Anyone?

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

A friend of mine has one of these, and while I'm not usually the kind of guy that likes a GPS, the lane assist is a very cool feature that's useful for unfamiliar places.

How hard and expensive is it to upgrade this for traffic updates?

WARNING!!! I am a die hard Garmin fanboy, but I have to say that my 855 is the worst Garmin GPS I've ever had. I have had about 6 different models over the years, but the 855 has serious lag issues when entering addresses and I frequently have to remove the battery because of lockups. The worst part is that the unit can lock up the highway and you'd don't really notice because the road is pretty straight. Before you know it,you've blown past your exit because you are waiting on the GPS to tell you to exit. Not good.

so if you're one of the 5 to 7 licensed drivers in the northern hemisphere who don't already have a nav... this ones for you.

I own last year's Garmin GPS. Let me be the first to tell you that it is a life saver. My Badgers won the right to go to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, so me and my college buddies drove all the way from Wisconsin to California with Garmin leading the way!

It's very user friendly. My 60 year old mother, who is computer illiterate, caught on really fast and learned how to use it within minutes.

Doesn't look like it has lifetime maps. I like my TomTom. It was $150, but it has lifetime maps and lifetime traffic updates which work great.

Wow. A GPS not built-in to a phone. How retro. Count me out.

I've had a significantly less shiny model of Garmin nüvi for the past year, and continue to be pleased with it, both locally and on cross-country trips. I'd be jumping at this sale if that one wasn't still doing so well.

Lifetime traffic updates require a receiver purchase. It's out of stock on Garmin's site, but it's the GTM 20, and its $80.73 on Amazon.

I was looking for that too. Does not appear to be eligible for lifetime map upgrades at Garmin, but you need to plug the device in to get prices on current maps.
