Any suggestions/recommendations? Sounds like the 260W at this stage but the risk of not being able to run our maps is a huge bummer ... what about the older models?
Although the Dollar has taken quite a dip, its still far cheaper and sensible to buy it on home grounds like where you are... We have the same confronting us too in Europe i.e.
Upfront, it looks expensive, the Euro and the high rates etc... but at the end of the day, with taxes & warranty included, the bargain is surprisingly more sound with home purchase.
Heyyyy, Howard, I was once rather keen on the 5000 too but the limitations and its awesome drainage on power (and with Karen in there as well with her thing... ), it became obvious to have it left in the car or larger vehicle like a SUV but kinda smallish still for a RV really.
certainly NOT the ideal choice for Asian roads & exposure though!!! Darn burglars will still break in and run off with it leaving you with the mess and loss nevertheless and perhaps, they might swear & curse ya from elsewhere for letting them nick yr 5000.... Perhaps cast a spell too for spoiling their day's takings with your spoils....hahaaa
