That's great, The 5.3" GPS doesn't have FM transmitter :( 103$ for 1 5.3" GPS seems to be a good deal.

Let me know if i can meet you and check out your PND when you receive it.
What is the status of the shipment?

Ebay India has started a service where
  1. You buy something from Ebay US
  2. Ebay calculates shipping to India + Customs + Octroi + Other taxes in India
  3. You pay to Ebay India in INR
  4. If the item is not delivered to you in a fixed timeframe (I think 20 days) for WHATEVER reason, you get full refund. E.g. if it detained in customs for 4 weeks you don't have to p[ay anything you get your money back.
But cost is higher than Garmin units available in India (officially).

There are other sites like DX (E.g. china supply) all of them have similar prices and issues (Like RMA in case of DOA).

You can try 20north.com as well. I have not tried my self, but heard on other forums. Their shipping period is from 2 weeks to 2 months (depending on customs delay)
