I rang Fujitsu about this model and surprisingly they told me that they don't have online selling policy which they are taking out soon. I'll have update on that as well..Richie is right .The reasons why they are expensive is because of maps and other functions that are not compatible here in Aus.
I have this unit that i can get for $420 plus $15 postage in Australia. Let me know what you guys think.
