    I agree, you can get the software (street atlas 2004) and the receiver for $129.00 at Best Buy. That is what I am running and it does very well.

    one of my friends bought that for $50 or so off ebay. It seemed to work well but he said sometimes it looses signal.. I mean you pay for what you get... BUT it seems ok and its usb.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    DOH! I got the 2003 and I got the GPS reciever about a week ago from bestbuy. I wonder if they will let me upgrade.

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway
