Apparently, GARMIN 2 years warranty covered across Europe. So no point
for me to pay £890 in the UK for EU GARMIN 2610 that I could pay
£710 in Portugal (incl. VAT & delivery)

EUR 880 (GARMIN 2610)
+ EUR 30 (Delivery)
= EUR 1,082.90 (Price including delivery & VAT)
= GBP 715.52 (10 June 2004 exchange rates)
+ GBP 14.31 (2% commission which is max. with credit card payment in Europe with my bank)
= GBP 730 (not too bad considering cheapest price in UK is £890)

Answer from Duarte Braga from click here:

we buy all GPS's from Garmin and Magellan European Distributors. All of our Garmin and Magellan products are genuine european versions. They are not modified US versions, so all the basemaps, detailed maps, etc will be the regular european ones. Power supplies will always be 220V regulated.
Prices are the following:
Road Mate 700 - £790.00 (VAT incl)
StreetPilot 2620 - £866.00 (VAT incl)
StreetPilot 2610 - £693.00 (VAT incl)
Be aware that you will be charged in Euros. The prices in GBP considered are based on a EUR/GBP = 0,66

As some competitors in the UK tried to justify the price difference with click here with some UK specs?, I did contact GARMIN.

For me, there are not such UK specs but there is one single EUROPEAN model.

See Garmin's answer below:


Thank you for your email.

I have not heard of this website, but that is not to say that they do not purchase units off of one of our distributors.

They clearly state that that Street Pilot 2610 on their site is a genuine European unit.

Thank you,
Best regards,
