Factory Direct is selling MS Streets & Trips 2007 with GPS Locator for
$19.99 with coupon for the rest of this year.
This is part of an otherwise boring set of coupons:

This is a good price.  The unit is "new", not open box or refurb.  The
2007 locator is better than the older ones (I never remember which
year had the hardware transition, but I think 2007 is good).

| I noticed that the Factory Direct flyer in today's Star offers the 
| Microsoft Streets and Trips 2006 with GPS Locator for $39.99
| This seems like a good price.  The locator will work under Linux.  It is a 
| little box + cable that plugs into a USB port.  The software is of course 
| useless under Linux.
| Linux mapping software could be improved.  So buy one of these and pitch 
| in :-)
| As usual, phone Factory Direct before making a trip: they often don't 
| stock what they advertise.
