aren't new users supposed to get free map upgrade? i can't find anywhere that they make that statement in writing. i finally got to support for PND and they say i can purchase Q4 2009 for $80 or for $50 in the first 90 days.i KNOW we've discussed that here and now i had to hang up with them until i can prove it. HELP ME. :!: :!: :!: My Camel
thanks! i KNEW it! dummy me.i talked with 2nd level support. she verified (30 days) but still-----
If i don't see a vast improvement in the routing with a map or software upgrade soon it's going back no matter how cool it is.
They better do something quick. If i don't see a vast improvement in the routing with a map or software upgrade soon it's going back no matter how cool it is.I'm starting to think that everything that you can add to a Garmin as far as POI's, Traffic camera's, custom cars, proximity alerts etc. for free will be something that Motorola is going to charge for.
MOTOEXTRAS is in DEV mode now. You can buy updates with test credit card numbers, and you will get 1-week trial licenses and a test invoice.
someone mentioned that they are licensing the software in the gps. i hope it's a wholly owned company. then they CAN effect changes.
maybe the powers-that-be here will make a Morotola forum rather than having us as a subset to the general GPS.
do you know the supplier of the SOFTWARE?
if you had to go for the best----knowing what you know----who and what model would you decide on?
do you know the supplier of the SOFTWARE?The name of the company is NNG Global and the software is called iGo. There are a few different versions of iGo and each company that licenses the software puts their own "skin" on the software and sometimes a unique feature or two.But that is precisely why some of us are not terribly excited about the product. There have been dozens of companies who have outsourced hardware, loaded iGo software on, slapped their own company logo on the GPS, and called it good. They've never had much influence to add new features, aggressively fix bugs, etc.There have been dozens of companies that have tried this approach, but virtually all have failed to get much traction in the GPS market. The Motorola device isn't really a bad GPS-- but it will face the same hurdles dozens of other companies have gone through.Harman Kardon basically did the same thing... Big company with brand recognition, purchased some hardware, licensed iGo, didn't sell enough units, never fixed any bugs, and now users are left high and dry without map updates, without warranty repairs, and a paperweight on their desk.I don't have anything against Motorola, nor the iGo software... but when dozens (even big names) have tried this approach in the past and failed I have to ask What Motorola will do different that will result in a different outcome... So far I don't see what that will be.
