The FTM-400 is cheaper than the FTM-350 + FGPS-1 it replaced. The 350 alone was cheaper but the 400 has GPS built-in already. Most of the FTM-350 screens don't display anything without GPS or APRS enabled.
HRO used to sell the FTM-350AR for $630 and the FGPS-1 module for $70. The FTM-400 goes for $690 and with the $20 instant rebate it's $670 right now.
If you don't want APRS then the FTM-350 was a slightly cheaper option, but if you just want a dual band voice radio the FT-8800 is better than both IMHO and is a steal at $380 after the $80 rebate.
