I saw Walmart had a GPS, but I'm not sure which one it is. I just glanced at the ad quick a couple of days ago.

Summit HC package ($199.95) starting 11/22 (I believe they are open beginning at 3pm). This flyer is from the store closest to 55337 which is Lakeville:

Walmart.com is showing a 76CSx for $299.00:

That is a great price, if any of you are looking at upgrading your GPSr, I recommend this deal, I have the 76Cx and I love my GPSr. If you enjoy geocaching and are considering a GPS, then consider that GPS should be your most expensive purchase, and getting a good one, like this (with the auto route option) will help.

I keep seeing the price drop on the Pocket LOOX and was thinking about getting one for my wife because she has a tendency to get lost easily.

Anyone have one or know someone who does?

Best Buy predicts a Magellan GPS at $169 will be a door-buster hit. The Minnetonka location predicts people will get in line outside five hours before the store opens.

That's because they know that they need that much time to have their old Magellan find its way to the store! Smile
