Beware when ordering the product from Semsons & Co, order directly from Amazon!
on August 18, 2010
The suction mount by Garmin 010-10936-03 (for Nuvi 205,205w) from "Semsons & Co" did not come in genuine Garmin packaging and is missing a plate (with a sticker on it). I returned the item and reordered the same item sold by Amazon LLC to receive the plate, bracket, and suction mount in genuine Garmin packaging.
It's deceiving because the item sold by Amazon LLC and Semson have the same Item Model # and ASIN # when you search for them. This is probably why the reviews are so discrepant for the same product - the people who ordered from Amazon were the ones that received the complete and genuine Garmin product. I've ordered the exact same item sold by Amazon LLC and it came in genuine garmin packaging as described on the accessories page by Garmin. It's only a one dollar difference between the product sold by Semsons and Amazon LLC, it is worth it to order the item that is sold directly by "Amazon LLC" and not "Semsons - fulfilled by Amazon" to avoid any disappointment.
In addition, I just noticed that Semsons and Co listed the item to have an original price of "$42.68" which is untrue, the item is on sale on Garmin's official website for just $25! This enables the seller to list a large discount (68% off!) so that people will purchase the item from them. I strongly advise against ordering this particular product from Semsons and Co, order from Amazon and you won't have to make returns!
