Huh?  It most certainly has parallel receivers, 12 of them.  It was
going for $440 retail at the time I bought mine, but I bought it for
a bit less used from someone that only needed one for testing a
short time.  So I bought mine when they were quite new.  It was the
first 12-channel parallel unit from Garmin that I could actually get
my hands on.

It doesn't have WAAS, but it is 12-channel parallel and locks up
nice and fast.
