Daily deal – Garmin Nuvi 500 rugged outdoor GPS unit

My daily deal for today is for the Garmin Nuvi 500.

This rugged and waterproof GPS unit is pre-loaded with topographic and city maps of the continental United States, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.

The 3.5″ display can be setup to assist with cycling, automotive, marine and pedestrian modes of getting around.

The device also features an SD card slot, a mini-USB connector for PC connectivity and can be expanded with a large variety of Garmin map products.

The Garmin Nuvi 500 usually retails for over $380, but you can currently pick one up from REI at just $289. If you select the REI “ship to store” option, you’ll get free shipping.
