New Becker Map Pilot for Sale
I have a brand new Becker Map Pilot that I purchased from the local Mercedes parts counter, for sale: $400. Let me explain why.
I just bought a used C300 a week ago. While negotiating the deal the salesperson made a mistake and told me the car was wired for the Becker Map Pilot. Then I made my first mistake and didn't double check it was actually wired for it. Later this week I went in and purchased the unit from the parts counter and then went home and made my second mistake. I hooked it up to my lap top and did the "free for 45 days" map update. So the good news is that it's all updated for North America. Unfortunately I don't have a car to use it in.
I have emailed Becker about "un registering" the unit, which they said they might do. I have also talked with the parts department about taking it back, which they said they might do. Or, I could just do a quick sell to someone who wants one. It's new, in the box and retails for $600. However I got a discount as part of the car deal. I just want to get my $400 back. Local pick up would be the easiest (Bellevue WA), but I'm not opposed to working something out.
If you're interested PM me. Thanks. Actually I'm new to the board, so I'm not sure I can receive PMs. If not, post a note and we can connect.
