Well, I decided to go ahead and join AMA, order the zumo 660-Except that- Garmin staff tells me they do not sell directly to the public even w/AMA membership. If you follow all of the directions ( I tried anyway), the links will lead you to Garmin - BUT zumo 660 is not listed available GPSs available. It will give you the discount and give you leads where to purchase (except that they do not have any in stock).
I contacted Garmin (Chicago store) and was informed that all zumo 660s have been sent back to company for software corrections and updates, and that they will be available in a "few weeks".
So there- If I undestand it correctly- If you want or need a GPS for a trip- it might be a good idea to think about a plan B.

660 update

I followed the links you mentioned- 660 is not listed as option at this point anyway. Maybe after they have completed a few extra they will allow them to be listed.

zumo 660 update

Thank you for your suggestions. Just tried them-to no avail. Something must have changed since your order. I have e-mailed the employee purchase suggestion and will wait for an answer from them.

I just went into the AMA Garmin area and got this on a Zumo 660.....

Suggested Retail Price: $ 799.99 USD
Your price: $ 639.99 USD

Put the Zumo 660 item number in the search area and you get the above with a click to buy area. I did not click on it but it was there to buy.

zumo 660

did what you did. I clicked on - and it takes you a group of dealers "where you can purchase" - they are out of stock and no mention of the discount.

zumo 660 final update

I talked to Garmin Special Programs-

The zumo 660 is off the list for the time being ( probably a couple of weeks). "It is on back order" and they chose not to take any more orders until they could catch up. Therefore- at this time you can go to the Garmin site, take the discount but can not " add to the cart".
