    Best Site to Buy Garmin Edge 705

    Finally decided to buy a Garmin 705 and started looking online. Garmin's own website says the "suggested retail price" is $499. Plus they are also offering a $50 mail in rebate. But when I comparison shop online I find:

    1) Most sellers that seem to have good customer reviews are selling the unit for over $500 (most at $549 or above).

    2) Some sellers that are offering lower rates have limited or no customer reviews on the sellers site and when I review on line they have horrible customer complaints.

    3) Many are selling refurbished units.


    So...where are the best deals? Would you trust a refurbished 705? Even without the rebate (rebate available on new units only) the prices are much cheaper but the warranty is probably less.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
