Any interest in Garmin 696 portable w/ XM antenna?

I haven't decided whether to sell yet, but I'd like to check and see if there's any interest out there, and what price people might be willing to pay. Unit would be shipping from Canada, but shipping to the US wouldn't be too hard.

It's the older XM antenna, but still works well. The system software in the 696 is up to date. I also have a yoke mount that I'd throw in for free, and a Zaon XRX traffic detector (now discontinued) that can show traffic—with mixed reliability—right on the 696 screen, which I'd probably also toss in (use at own risk).

This is a reliable unit, but now that I have a panel-mount GPS, I'm thinking of decluttering and removing it from my yoke. I could use a tablet to show weather and traffic from my GTX 345 and a GDL 51 (for XM weather).
