If equipment is in good condition and contains all original material, this is my take from seeing pricing here and there:
- 5500: $150; can be had new for $190-200
- 5600: $230; can be had new for ~ $300
- c750: ??
- c760: $500-550 tops; can be had new for ~ $600 if shopped around
- c860: $600-650 tops; can be had new (ordered from Japan) for around $700, sometimes less (high-tech, which has no more )
- c700: ??
Certainly, extras up the prices and any damage/wear lowers the values. Also, warranties from places like Dynamism add significant value IMO.
What does everyone else think? Am I off on any of the percieved values? I really can't say for the c700/750 or the new 6000s as I've little shopping experience with them...

I'm interested in finding out what works/doesn't work in each of the tkcROMs. Does anybody know where such information is at?
I've been using tkcROM 2.0-alpha3, but the backup functionality does not work and I'd like to know what was fixed/added between tkcROM 1.0 final and tkcROM 2.0-alpha3.

I am long removed from any development outside of databases (C, C++ and Java classes back in 97-98 8) ), and I've used Linux for relatively few purposes over the years, but I would like to learn about how I can potentially help with development.
This is not to say that I will necessarily be of much help, but if any of you know of some good starting points (sites, books, etc) for the concepts involved (OpenZaurus/OE, Getting an environment set up on my linux machine for this type of development, what parts to focus learning on, etc), I can at least start to get a feel for it and potentially start to develop the skills.

I am considering buying one from Japan, which after my research would run me about $580 I think (depending on my bank's exchange rate for wire transfers). However, I thought I would see if anybody was looking to sell one first.
If so, I would potentially be interested in either the c760 or c860. I'm in Chicago-

as i see, guys you are in to it.im a noob running tkc rom on a 5600 and i have a problem with a cf gps.A bc-307.All the instructions i found on qpegps are for 5500 and i couldnt make it work.anyone can help?
thanks and sorry for the out off topic.
mpak - there are some at this site that use qpegps extensively; I mainly use zRoadMap. However, here are some of the problems that you may be encountering (I'm using v0_9_1):
First, look for your device in the compatibility list:
1) Did you get gpsd to work correctly?
Since I don't normally have gpsd running, everytime I start the application, I get an error message. The message indicates that if I hit 'Retry', then it will attempt to start the gpsd service. It always does this successfully for me.
2) Did you change the 'Args:' from the default device (serial) to compact flash? It should be changed as follows:
'-p /dev/ttyS0 -s 4800' to '-p /dev/ttyS3 -s 4800'
That will make it work with a CF GPS device rather than the expected serial.
3) Is your GPS card obtaining a satellite?
My card (Haicom MMF) indicates that it has obtained a satellite by the red LED flashing on and off. If this does not occur, then qpegps will show '???' next to the 'GPS:', indicating that it's not able to obtain a GPS signal. Hope that helps!
Also, look at the Documentation section of the SourceForge page, which has quite a bit of card recognition troubleshooting information:
Let me know if that helps-- if not, I may not be the right guy as I haven't used the app much more than explained here!
