Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

My gut feeling is they're having some issues with the Quadra-lift suspension. Fairly obvious really re the delay. If I wanted this option I would defiantely be waiting some time before ordering one.

Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

Yeah I understand that, but that alone doesn't make a delay of releasing the Quadra-Lift, there must be underlying issues. Not that we'll hear the facts

IIRC, the initial nav system for the WK2 is either the ones they currently use or similar... and after a few months (later this year) they're going to introduce a new navigation that uses Garmin's GIU/mapping technology.

Supposedly the new WK2 is going to launch with the same MYGIG unit that is found in current models but a new Nav unit by Garmin is going to be launched in late August early September for the WK2

EDIT Matt beat me to it

Thanks. That might be worth waiting a few months for.

Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

IMO, you really can't beat Garmin for navigation. If you're going to be using the nav a lot, or prefer a very easy-to-use interface, or just want the latest and greatest, I'd hold out for the new system.

Re: Anyone gonna place an order on March 8th?

Will be interesting to see how updates are applied to the Garmin unit, and at what cost. On my portable Garmin Nuvi I purchased a lifetime map option for $99, so the maps can easily be kept up-to-date for no additional charge. My wife's vehicle is DVD based and they want something like $250 every time you want new updated maps.

On hers you also can't make changes while driving, which you can do on the portable (passenger only, of course).

I seriously doubt they will be using a DVD-based system. My guess is it will be HDD and updates can be implemented via USB drive. Just a guess though. I'm sure Milous could shed some light on this.
