The quantity 1 prices are 2.5x the listed prices which are for quantity 
1000. Add in a GPS, GSM (not included in base), enough memory to be 
usable, and you'll be paying about US$600 for it. Plus $100 for shipping 
to North America.

So unless somebody has the cash to buy 500 or 1000 of these, it's not 
going to be a DIY project anytime soon.
