  • Garmin certainly makes some interesting products for the Asian market. Just noticed this model which is available in Taiwan:
    They sure do.

    This model has been around over there for quite some time. I guess the models with built-in TV receivers will never make it to the US market due to varying motor vehicle regulations prohibiting video screens in the front seats of a car:

    On the other hand, the Asian models do have some nifty features that I wish Garmin would implement in the US/European markets, such as, displaying the next three freeway exits, displaying the name of the street that you are on at the bottom center (available on the yr-2013 model)...

    I wonder why they get so many features over there as well...maybe the Asian market is considered a higher intelligence level than the US market. Seems like the nuvi line is much less dumbed-down over there. I feel really dumb now. :lol:

    It's a puzzlement... Garmin must think we are dumb over here. They probably have some kind of market research to prove it. :lol: Really, if you live in Australia you get to turn off auto-zoom on your Nuvi but it is forbidden in the US.

    Somewhere I read that you could enable the video player on the US Nuvi 3590 (maybe other things too) by changing some .xml in a config file. Evidently this only worked in the early versions of the firmware however.
  • It is conceivable that Garmin uses Asia to test market new ideas. However, Asia typically get the new products later than the US/EU/Australia and not all products are marketed over there.

    And just to make us salivate, Garmin has a true life-time free part and labor replacement warranty in Taiwan, practically no questions asked, even though the officially published warranty period is one year. I think it is because one of the founders of Garmin is from Taiwan.

    Forget SoCal, I'm moving to Taiwan! For some reason though, I doubt my limited Russian will help me very much over there. :P

    Actually this product is a bit redundant. I believe they also have StreetPilot for Android over there (it is available in some countries but not the US). So you could just install that on your phone and get all the same features plus telephony.

    Maybe Garmin just felt the need to put their Android code to work? This device is a lot like a big NuviFone (or was it GarminFone?), which was also Android based. One version of that hardware ended up being blown out very cheaply on Amazon as the Nuvi 295w here in the US, although I think it was just Linux as opposed to Android.

    And they are evidently planning to introduce an Android based handheld (the Monterra) soon, possibly later this summer. It will be interesting to see if that unit has more advanced highway features than the Montana (such as traffic, junction view, etc).
  • SergZak 340 Points
    Hopefully, the Monterra will at least be equal to or 1/2 better than the Montana since it seems to have inherited 1/2 the name. :wink:
  • Boyd 1985 Points
    Too bad that Ricardo Montalban is no longer with us. He could do a great commercial for it... "How do you like my new Monterra with its rich Android interface?".

    Looks like it is also going to cost half again as much as the Montana.
