Hi Jill,

Birds Australia is selling Magellan Pioneer GPS units, complete with a car
power adaptor, to its members for $299. 

This model usually retails for the same price without the car power adaptor
(which is worth about $45).

This GPS unit is a basic hand-held model, about the size of an average
mobile phone. Other GPS models, which have more functions (e.g. email
capacity), are also available from Birds Australia.
