Week 7

The idea of a GPS and a phone combined is a brilliant idea but unfortunately Garmin failed this attempt miserably. It initially begins as very good navigational system that does everything to integrate your life into a GPS system but as a phone it did a terrible job. It was lacking in talk time of even the use of the of a simple touch screen cell phone. This is an example of when technology is not properly executed. This is a high priced item that is robbing the consumer. These items should be flagged if they end up on anyones gift list. Safer option maybe apps or free google maps downloads
