I called Garmin and sent them proof that I purchased the unit from Walmart and they extended the warranty to more than 24 months. The website says that warranties on refurbs are extendable if purchased from a retailer but not from an auction or classified ad.

The unit I received had a car charger,update to current maps good for ninety days I believe. And a full subscription for 2 years to the google service,which is awesome by the way. My google services had the original expire date from the first purchaser,but a note through garmins website when I registered the product got me a complete subscription the following day.

A Newly-Overhauled device (NOH) is a device that was returned to Garmin to be factory refurbished. Newly-Overhauled devices go through extensive testing to bring the units up to the same specifications as when they were manufactured as new, maintaining high quality standards. Newly-overhauled devices will still have a one year manufacturer's warranty when purchased from a Garmin dealer.

Question

Is this device WAAS compatible?

Best Buy's site also has this refurbished Garmin but that site's specifications state that this unit's GPS receivers can access WAAS. The Garmin site doesn't confirm this information.

Only the nuvi 300 and 600 series have the WAAS feature. All other nuvi models contain a high-sensitive GPS receiver that does not require the WAAS feature.
