Rebate on Garmins New Navi Update

Postby themainviking » Fri Dec 23, 2011 10:24 am



Hey Guys;

Has anyone had Garmin refund their purchase price on the new Navi Update they started selling in October 2011, for $95 plus shipping (US funds), on CF card for the 2006 to 2008 and Cdn 2006 to 2010 Goldwing units, because I did... I am afraid to contact them to find out why in case they want their money back :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't have the card. But from what I hear on other boards it is because of bugs in the firmware. It sounds like they will bill you when the updated
version is released. If you haven't tried it try entering a POI by name. The keyboard display freezes.

Okay, thanks... I assume then that they will also send me an updated one at that time. Or hope so.

I talked to a Garmin rep a few weeks ago and he thought the updated version would be complete sometime the end of January.

In of June of 2011 I bought the update for my 07 navi model. This was at the inflated first price that they had. I think that was about $149. In October I found out about the bug in the new software that I had. Call them and they said to send them back the first card that I had and they would send me the newer bug free one and refund me back the money that I payed for the first one and then recharge my credit card for the new lower price one. As I said that was in October. I still have not recieved the bug-free card yet. It now has been 4 months that I have not had a card to put in my bike. I travel alot, so needless to say I do miss the GPS. I know one thing. I would never recomend Garmin people for there GPS. Extremely pore service and terriable support. They could have told me that they did not have the bugs worked out yet and I could have kept my old card until the good one was ready to ship out. Not happy with Garmin.
