Good GPS seller
 
After near six weeks trying to get my recent garmin purchase to work, I threw in the towel. The seller (esellgps) Satnaveasy from whom I bought it agreed to take it back and give me a refund. None of the problems were of their doing or fault and they agreed instantly without any hassle whatsoever last Friday. Today Monday the refund is in my account.

I can recommend them as most companies are fine when things go well, the good ones stand out when it doesn't.

However if you are buying a Garmin, make sure you have a fast broadband connection as you will need to make several 3.54GB downloads. and also need to have the latest windows OS, Browser (preferably Firefox) and java installed As all of these will be needed to commission it.

Hmmm, the only things I ever have to d/l from Garmin are updates for firmware or a new version of MapSource. I can do that even with a mobile phone connection. However, I don't use any of their maps...

Yup, even I managed to update the firmware :) but the 17 hour download for the map failed twice at around the 14 hours (2.6 GB) limit. I had to use a friends machine with a faster broadband, Hers failed three times at about 6 hours into a nine hour download and once at one hour before it all loaded in on the fourth attempt. The radar database it screwed up completely and would not unlock the files on her machine, and would not down load at all on mine (seems I did not have the right software).:)
