+ecanderson Posted January 28, 2010 Share Posted January 28, 2010 (edited) You still don't get it do you? Garmin isn't offering the free update out of the goodness of their angelic hearts. They're doing it because customers demand it and they want to make their customers happy so they can sell more product. That's the only reason it's offered. And their customers demand it because there is NO way for a typical customer to know (apart from brand new product releases, and not always then) what level of map is sitting on those units on the store shelf. Garmin (and TomTom and others) do NOT want to have to deal with stock rotation simply due to map age. The savvy customer would want to open up the box and power it up and find out what it is that they're buying. The retailers won't go there. Edited January 28, 2010 by ecanderson Quote Link to comment
