  • Garmin Mobile PC shipping yet?

    I've been sniffing around to get a copy and no one seems to have it available yet. Anyone got the skinny on this...or better yet have a working copy an a review for us?

    Sounds like it will be a quality bit of kit for $99 (likely less) if they would ever get around to actually shipping the damn thing.

    looks like its popping up in a few places, showing as in stock, but not enough yet that I trust it, still no review by Marvin over at Laptop GPS World

    Price will be nice.

      My last e-mail from Garmin was received at the time they were too busy with CES 2008. That was the last time I heard from them regarding Garmin Mobile PC. I though it was to be released April 1, but I guess not. I don't have a copy myself, but I'm eager to get my hands on it.

            BIGGKATT01, that sounds promising! I still cannot find any place on the web that I would trust they have it in stock.

            d0tech, good news! Yes, I see a new SKU added on the page. There is still no MSRP, but it will likely be similar to the NA version.

              I was hoping that it would have been in the mail today but nill they sent me a tracking number but its a us postal service tracking number so you know its worth almost nothing. just got an email from the vendor I purchased it from and they said it should be here by monday so hopefully I should be able to tell everyone something by then. sorry guys

                I'm interested in this too. Curious to know how well it works compared to their popular touchscreen nav unit.

                  BIGGKATT01, I just searched eBay for Garmin Mobile PC, but 0 (zero) items found . You sure the right product is being shipped?

                    be aware that Garmin did bring a PC version GPS program ages ago, that is like a 1995 version of auto route express

                        I spoke with tigergps on Thursday because they are in NYC across town from where I work and wanted to pick it up. The guy on the phone couldn't find it on their system, then after looking around had an "Ahh-haa moment" and said he hoped to receive them next week.
