    If one would buy this simply for the one map it currently displays, go right ahead.

    Fancy language. This particular tool is useless without a map. Different GPS's include different maps. This particular one, new, does not come with a pre-loaded map. Maps list price for $100, and retail for not a lot less. That's 80% of the asking price, 80% of the off-the-shelf value. So, no, the application is for sale as much as the tool is.

    If I applied AAA learning, I'd have believed, with some others, that SE USA included more states, maybe even Virginia. http://library.thinkquest.org/4552/usmap1.jpg

    Finally, seller states he has not used the device. So, to help set a fair deal for everyone in this community, with no misunderstanding, I put out the info I gleaned about the majority of value, maybe incorrectly, from the Garmin page, and asked for confirmation or correction.

    Let me interject here, in defense of the OP and try to encourage the sale of this GPS(which I am very close to buying this unit). Whether or not the mapset that is loaded on his GPS contains all of the Southeast, if you go to GPSFileDepot.com you will find the free Southeast US map there is better in resolution and size than Garmin's. Alot of the free maps there exceed Garmin's. So, even if the GPS was without any map, it wouldn't matter.

    I've successfully used Wine for installing those packages into Basemap(also using Wine) and then into my Dakota 20.
