In searching for a Garmin GPS showed up as having the best price. I ordered/paid for the device on-line. Soon after, I received an email as follows: "Thank you for your order. Your order has been received.Please call us at 877-425-9933 (Mon-Thur: 10:30am EST to 8:30pm EST, Friday: 10:30am EST to 6pm EST, Sunday: 11:00am EST to 8:00pm EST) to confirm your order, so we may have it shipped out to you as soon as possible."

When I called to confirm the order, the individual tried to sell me a memory card for the GPS at an outrageous price. He (Tony) stated that it was "required" in order to use the GPS. I declined and said that I just wanted the GPS. He then advised that it would be 6-8 weeks before it would ship. I asked him why the website states that the product was "available." He said, "it says its available, not in-stock." I said OK, that's fine, I'll wait. I waited a few days and then called back to check the status of my order. The individual stated that the order had been cancelled and hung up on me.
