GARMIN STREETPILOT 2720

Hello,

 

just seen some garmin streetpilot 2720 advertised on ''flea bay'' from a garmin dealer in the US. Factory reconditioned with all current maps on DVD ( incl Europe ) for $119 ( approx £87 ) ....the problem is the UK customs duty....

 

Any one purchased one from the US and if so what duty did you pay??

Ideally it would be better if someone brought me one as a ''gift'' from their hols?? or if they are a US service personnel ( I have a large US base near where I work )!!

ANYONE PLANNING A VISIT TO NORTHERN UK FROM USA???????

 

I know It sounds dodgy but I am sick of getting ripped off in the UK and even more tired of Gordon going on about credit crunch etc - so why wont THE UK TAX MAN relax the duty on imported personal goods???

 

Garmin 2720 reconditioned and supplied by UK dealers are £500 to £700 !!!

 

advice appreciated

A recon 2720 from a UK dealer might well cost that much, but a brand new 2820 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Garmin-StreetPilot-2820-Motorcycle-Bike-Edition-2720_W0QQitemZ370142791020QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_AudioTVElectronics_GPSSystems_GPSSystems?hash=item370142791020&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1301%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318

might cost as little as £250 with a new Zumo costing a little more.

If you are good with a PC then you might buy a US unit and then follow the guide to "Anglicize your Garmin" on the BMW website.
