In the market for an in-car GPS and Garmin's nuvi 310 looks fantastic, but the DSE website has it reduced to clear - i.e., getting rid of them - is this an old product and not advisable to buy? Or are there new models on their way? Because unless I'm buying myself a lemon, the product itself actually looks really good..

Any info appreciated!

the 310 is the mid range device, (which still blows out the navmans top line range)

the dse offer was too good to refuse and I just bought one (waiting for it to get delivered), although it does say clearance stock could be shop demos etc. but I certanely don't think the 310 is an end of the line model, the 250's are still being widely sold everywhere.

oh and for anyone with this device it uses open source map software (read: FREE MAPS AND UPDATES!!!)

check out this nz site dedicated to garmin maps and POIs.. the speed camera database looks mint! :

DSE items have certain statuses.

Active - Standard Products, Ordering Available, can be transferred with discretion of manager.
Discontinued - Standard Products either replaced or not selling, not able to order new stock, not able to be transferred between stores.
Quit Stock - Discontinued products that are still not selling so have been heavily reduced in price, able to be transferred if customer pays freight with discretion of manager

The Garmin 310 (D4164) is a Quit Stock product. It has not been replaced as far as the DSE POS is concerned.

yeah I tried ordering one when they were still shown as "online - in stock" but they couldnt get me one.

Ended up getting a Nuvi 660 and am totally loving it, well worth it and I would highly reocmmend it.
