Just bought a nuvi 1490LMT (new in box) and when I tried to register it was informed it was already registered.
Seems they are not adverse to flogging stuff returned as new, hoping the punter don't make waves, alas for them I make large waves.

Should have smelt a rat when I noticed the packaging was already opened, so will be returning duff nav unit and demanding some compo from them.

You'll be unlikely to get any compo but you can expect a full refund or replacement.

If the contract of sale was for a new unit and it turned out it wasn't then Halfords are in breach of contract. You can legally sue them for 'damages'. The damages would need to be in relation to the amount of money lost so after getting your refund you cold maybe take them to court for the 1.28 petrol money that was wasted. Laughing
