I agree, way too expensive!I will still say future paperweight but I look forward to honest reviews down the road. Not cheap!
YUP, got the alert yesterday in my emails from the factory store. Seems it would replace and consolidate a couple of systems, but....they are pretty proud of it ($$$). Not available quite yet, I wonder how many will consider it as it is a new system, and just how well it will work in the field. A heck of a price for those who use it occasionally, and are not OTR types who would need it every day. Reminds me of the 6 inch Garmin NUVI #1490, when it was first released on the market. Within 2 years, the model had reduced in price over $200, and within 4 was down another $200 ($400 total).
Interesting, If this is true, it sounds Like Garmin may need a little shake up in their sales and marketing departmentYeah may not even at that price, seems the company does not listen to its customers, they still look like they only allow 200 points to be loaded, not near enought for a trip of any size.....Magellan for example does 20k I think.....Seems also the reps the sent to Expo West did not know the product, what company that is marketing a product to overlanders would send ppl who know nothing about overlanding and the new onverlanding thingy to the expo?
LOL Might not want this no matter the price.....
