Garmin is offering a free AC/PC Adapter
allows you to connect the 162/168 to your PC
and to AC power) to anyone who bought one
since 1Jan01 and didn't get one in the box.

See [url]http://www.garmin.com/whatsNew/currentpromotions/AC_PCcoupon.pdf[/upc]

DO NOT THROW THE BOX AWAY. You need the UPC
from the box to take advantage of this.

I suspect there are going to be some upset
folks who recycled the box in January.

I suspect that you might be able to make a good case IF you had your dated original reciept. The reason is, they require the serial number of the 168 (or 162). When the AC adapter arrives, it's box is labeled with your unit's serial number. I sent my rebate form in via. USPS preferred mail, and received my adapter within one week. Great service. But the AC/PC adapter is smaller than the unit I purchased (and returned) at my local store. It seems to work fine, I burned it in for 36 hours continous without incident.

For anyone interested, there is a favorable review of the 162 (same as the 168, but without fishfinder) at the following URL:
