robertlipe Posted May 24, 2010 Share Posted May 24, 2010 it just doesn't make sense for Garmin to have to support another platform. Cos Garmin would never introduce gratuitously different products? You're not new to this rodeo. :-) Taking that argument a step further it seems to me they are probably leveraging the Dakota/Oregon x50 platform for these new units with some software changes to handle the hard-buttons vs. touchscreen. More than a few of us that bought Colorado and thought that Oregon would be the the same platform with some software changes to handle the hard (rock-n-roller) buttons vs. touchscreen thought that, too. Within weeks we saw "new" features added (many which were present on the 60CSx and other products) to the OR family that were never "ported" to CO. I'm not one to fuss about products changing over time, but be careful about buying into corporate motivation for doing what you are pretty sure is doing another build from the "same" code base when they're in the business of selling hardware and not firmware upgrades.
