Thanks to Eric C. for pointing me to the refurbished TND 720 that was on sale at for $249. But thought I'd let those that were not following the thread that there is a coupon code available for another 20% off. This brought my cost down to $197 plus tax with free shipping.

The GPS can be found at IntelliRoute TND 720LM Refurbished

The discount code is Great20

As of last night the coupon code was still active.

I have no affiliation with them, just wanted to pass along a GREAT deal to anyone looking for a GPS unit.

Before trucking I used to work at a warehouse where we refurbished electronics, mainly GPS units, TVs, and surround systems.

It was a very small company, so we were as cheap as we can be with our repairs. If something on the unit wasn't 100% but it still ran then we wouldn't fix it and just call it refurbished to save us the money. But I doubt Rand McNally is like that since they are a giant electronics company and call afford to take care of their products.

Refurbishing basically consists of first finding out what's supposedly wrong with the unit. Then powering on the unit and using it for a short time. In this step I would test out the features and see if it actually works. Then I would verify if the unit is faulty. Once I diagnose the problem I would take it apart and fix or replace the problem.

In the end, if the product fully functioned without any setbacks then I would label it as refurbished after cleaning it.

Just my few tips from someone who has done that work before. Before you take it out on the road, test it yourself. Verify that it charges because that's the #1 issue with GPS units. Lastly, make sure it comes with some kind of return policy and warranty just in case.

But this is a good deal and I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Very informative reply Daniel, thanks.

Here is a quote from the Rand McNally site for those interested.

What does “factory refurbished” mean? Rand McNally refurbishes those IntelliRoute® TND™ devices that have either served as testing or demonstration units, or have been returned with little to no evidence of usage or flaws. Only those previously used devices that require no repairs or only minor repairs qualify for Rand McNally’s refurbishment program. Under the program, qualified devices are conditioned and validated according to a set of functional and appearance standards that result in a “like-new” device that is sold as “factory refurbished.” Rand McNally’s refurbishment program offers significant savings to customers, and also benefits the environment by reducing the wasteful disposal of fully functional electronics. Refurbished devices come with a one-year warranty.

So either we you get the one year warranty so it would prob be worth the savings. Although like Daniel said do they just say they are fixed and then I have nothing but problems. Do I just spend the cash on a new on to be safe. Damn I thought picking between the Rand and Garmin was tough now this lol.

I just checked and the coupon code was still valid. However, they are out of stock and the unit has to be back-ordered. Also, they won't ship to me here in Germany at my APO address. wtf-2.gif
