Affect on GE

After watching the video, not only do you get a story about the history of Garmin, but you can see why Garmin Express has grown. It has to run updates for most of their products.

Sounds more like a marketing

Sounds more like a marketing video. Still useful to watch.

One key feature garmin gps has over apple/google is the custom routing ability. It's very difficult to design and export a route from a google maps desktop pc to smartphone. Also, offline usage in areas with no reception.

Not to mention, keeping your phone plugged in all the time does a number on its battery life.

Very Interesting

Thanks.

Thanks for this info!

That's one if the reasons I like having a Garmin. Custom routes! Most people look at me crazy when I mention custom routes. Even fellow motorcycle riders. Smh. Most people just go the quickest way a to b. Offline usage is no longer a problem and hasn't been for awhile. Google maps and many others can be downloaded to a smartphone.

I spend time at their booth each year at CES (except this one coming of course) and found it quite interesting.

The woman interviewed in that video has been with the company for a long time. Back in 2012, I spoke to all of them (including her) at the booth at CES about an anomaly with the 3490LMT and I sent a full detailed email including log files, screenshots, etc. They acted quite interested in a) the issue and b) that I discovered it. I got a reply stating they would look into the issue(s) and then crickets. Never heard back from any of them and these aren't phone support folks. They are senior VP's and Engineer's for the company. Not really all that professional at the end of the day.

Garmin had so many other products. Guess my blinders have been working too well.
