QuoteSupportFrequently Asked Questions« Get additional answers from GarminDoes Garmin have authorized dealers selling on eBay?10/23/2009Garmin does not have any authorized dealers that sell new products directly on online auction sites. Any purchases made through online auction sites are on a "buyer beware" basis. A copy of the original sales receipt is required as the proof of purchase for warranty repairs. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification and Garmin will not replace any missing components from any package purchased through an online auction.There is always the possibility that products purchased through eBay or other online auction sites could be stolen merchandise. You assume this risk when you buy through these auction sites.

Quote from: omegaman on February 26, 2012, 07:54:18 AMI've purchased many units on eBay with no issues. If it's a used Garmin item you must simply ask if it has been registered, and if they can take their name off of it on the Garmin registration site. When that is done, you can register it to your name.No real issue at all, if you ask the question. You must be aware though that some maps that might be for sale, may already be registered to a Garmin unit, and you will not be able to put them on your Garmin unit.As before, ask the question. If they are legit, they will give you an answer. And always, if you buy, and it doesn't work correctly, you can file for a refund. If your complaint is genuine, you'll get your money back.
