Cant blame them for taking advantage of the huge "overlanding" fad. People are dropping large amounts of money into rigs right now. Im seeing more fully built rigs on new vehicle's with RTT's then ever. 10 years ago it was new JK's with 40's and no fenders all built for rock crawl. Most never saw dirt.Slap “overland” on it, charge 60% more than it’s worth and hope the marketing sticks.
Just an FYI, since I see that you're in Germany, I think that the Overlander is only designed for use in (i.e. only has maps for) North and South America. At least that's what their marketing seems to be indicating.Ok, about the price... Garmin had a legendary offroad Navi before, it was the standard device for Africa travelers and was proven to be the best available system, far better and way more reliable than everything else.
I used Garmin mtb navigation, it worked, used a Garmin street navigation, worked.
Garmin is the leader of the pack with outdoor and expedition handheld navigation systems.
Now they did it again, just wait a little for the review of xoverland. I'm quite sure they don't ruin their reputation with it.
There are many professionals who are using the Garmin devices.
