WOOPS

Interesting, thanks for sharing.

(I see my new 760 has a MediaTek chip vs. the SiRF)

What does all this mean

So if you have sirf on your gps is this going to affect our gps's that have it or are they just not going to be able to use it in the new ones !!!!!

ITC exclusion orders...

If the exclusion order goes into effect, it bars infringing products from entering the U.S. -- it doesn't do anything about the ones in our cars.

Garmin had started the move away from Sirf chips last summer

Garmin had started the move away from Sirf chips last summer and none of the new models that I'm aware of use them any longer. That has really got to have hurt Surf to loose 10's of millions of chip sales a year from Garmin. Garmin even started the move in the middle of the model lifespan. The original 760's had Sirf but last summer the later production 760's went to the new MTK v1 - MTK3318 chipset.

It doesn't mean anything to you at this point, just when you decide to buy a new GPSr.

Just purchased my Nuvi 780 in Dec '08 and it has the SiRF chip. Not sure if that's good or bad question
