That is the cheapest price I ever saw on that model. If money wasn't so tight I would get one. I just can't justify it now since I have two battery minders and a pulsetech one not to mention several other chargers

The fine folks at a local Future Shop priced matched the $149.99 Dell deal for me in the store.

(their price match is supposed to be 110% but that's ok)

I've read a few posts on the web re: some Future Shop, Best Buy stores etc. not agreeing to the price match.

It appears to be valid under price match guarantees to me.

I went prepared with printed pages of the Dell deal from Dell's website and a printed copy of my Dell shopping cart showing the item in the cart with no shipping charges on this deal.

Default Castrol Syntec at Walmart

If you use synthetic oil then you might want to check your local Walmart. I spotted 5 litres with a 1 litre bottle attached of Castrol Syntec up on the top shelf.

Price was an even CDN$ 30.00 (that's 6 litres for $30.00)

On a lower shelf, the 5 litre jug was $32.95. Even that beats Canadian Tire 4.4 litres for $38.95!

1 litre of Castrol Syntec can be as high as $8.95 here.

Garmin nuvi 855 with Voice Recognition software/firmware for hands free operation.
Reduced to US$119.00 online only at www.Walmart.com .
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Garmin-NUVI-8 ... s/12509601
I have one, and I paid about $50 more last August.
It's been discontinued by Garmin, but is still supported, and it's a good GPS unit, IMO.
It has pretty much every major feature a GPS can have, except cell phone Bluetooth, but I didn't need that.
If you don't live in the US, you can still set up an account at Walmart.com, then order the nuvi and have it
shipped to a US location nearest to you, and pick it up when it's convenient, like when you travel to the US.

Amazon has them for that price also, free shipping. I almost bought one a few weeks ago, but got scared off by the reviews that said they had a lot of lock up problems, and the software update didn't fix them. Seems like a lot of folks, in the reviews, are saying the new Garmins aren't as good as the old ones.

I do really want to get a Garmin (hate my TomTom, but with Tryre, I can preload selected routes) so I could use the new Streets and Trips route loading to it.

Have you had any of the lock up problems?

Not very many. We had an occasional lockup when the skies were literally opened up with rain
in Utah last month, and once or twice since I've owned it, because I sometimes sit it between
the seats in my SUV, so I think it loses sight of the "birds". I think it's a combination of where it
sits in your vehicle and what the weather is like. I sit it between the seats in the SUV, or below
the dash on the ashtray cover in my Roadtrek, when it's too hot to sit it on the dash below the
windshield. I've got one of those Scosche (?) pads that sit on stuff, rather than use the suction cup
mount, because some states don't allow suction cup mounts when we're on the road (California?).
It seems to function fine when not on either dash, for the most part.
Personally, I think a lot of the lock up complaints are a result of user error, or user lack of common
sense when they choose a spot to place their GPS units. Or they've heavily tinted their windshield, or
have created some other physical or electrical interference. The GPS antenna has to have a pretty
decent view of the sky. I think the direction of driving also affects the line of sight to the "birds".
We drove the entire Glenwood Canyon stretch of I-70, including a snowstorm just west of Denver
at altitude, and had no lockup. That's a narrow sky view stretch of road down in that canyon.

Sorry for the lengthy answer, so no, not really.
