Default Release date for Garmin 4212?

Has anyone heard any new news or rumors regarding the release date for the Garmin 4212?

I am prepared to wait, but the sooner the better.

Default Pick Five Winner

If you can get that question answered truthfully it would be like winning the LOTTO.

from what i heard the 4212 should be out before the end of this month and the 5000 series is due out the end of May. Hopefully the information is correct because I am waiting for the 4212 to come out. does anyone know anything different?????

For what it is worth, I checked with West Marine this weekend and they show the 4212 hitting the central warehouse April 3. We will see!

I did too; today it says April 9th for both the 4000 and 5000 series. A few of the smaller units are listed as in stock - 525, 525s, 420s, 440s.

I have quite few of the small units in stock.

The 4208 is estimated for 5/23 which is a huge delay over the first estimates I had.

The 4212 is estimated for 5/30.

The 5208 and the 5212are estimated for 5/25.

If I had to guess I would say we will be lucky to see these before June

West Marine's web site had 4/9 this morning, but now says 4/10. If it says 4/11 tomorrow -the site must be set to project out a full week to give us that false hope.

I would expect nothing less than that from Worst Marine, but I will keep the faith until proven otherwise ;?

Great. I had checked this morning again and it was still 4/9. Looks like I'll have to remount my 192C and try to figure out how to connect my GSD 22 to it for the early part of the season. And I already have a hole in my panel for a 2206 and I'll have to make a new panel to mount the 192C.

Only good thing is that I didn't sell the old unit on eBay yet.

Worst Marine's web site, as suspected, now indicates 4/11/07. I didn't really expect the release to be on time. but this game that worst marine plays with the release date is laughable.

Look up any product on the WM site. Next to the price is a column for In Stock. Listing is either Yes, No, or New Item. Clicking on the status brings up a windows with warehouse ETA for products.
