Bean counting kills good companies, and it's pretty much killed Garmin for me. This product doesn't do what it says on the tin, and it costs a premium price. I get a lot of comments along the lines of "wow that's a nice GPS on that thing" at which point I inform the comment-giver that it's actually a giant overpriced turd and never to buy one.

The Garmin customer support guy didn't help when he suggested "well it's not really designed to do that." At which point I asked, "well then, why did you put it on the box", at which point he told me he didn't believe me and actually put me on hold to go find a box to prove I was lying. "Oh well I guess the box does say that...but the quality is just fine."

Ticked off vocal a-holes like me undo all the savings the bean counters generate, and then some.
