    joemmo: Sony make a smartphone which was heavily advertised as being rugged and waterproof.

    Not quite a smart-phone, but still an Android device - have a look at the Motorola Motoactv. That specific device is probably too closed and controlled to be interesting to buy, but that's just the software and Motorola's decision. It does show a direction smartphone platforms likely will expand and expand into though in the future.

    I agree that the future is bleak for Garmin, unless they choose to be the ones to lead with building rugged, small-form factor Android devices.

    He was willing to accept he had committed an offence - it sounds like he took umbrage to the police officers being officious dicks and over reacting to a petty crime.
    To be honest if i was arrested for not having an ID on me i think i would be pretty pissed off to.
    If this had happened to someone who isnt famous (someone on a Critical mass demo for instance) i think the comments section would be different.
    Baldwin has always struck me as a decent fella

    Garmin is a dead company walking. As soon as Apple/Google sort their battery life out, that is Garmin's only current USP gone. Lack of other decent competitors also makes them lazy in terms of customer service, usability etc.

    I disagree. Most smartphones are not rugged or waterproof enough to attach to your handlebars, that is very unlikely to change due to the extra cost that would be involved for something most people don't care about in a phone. Many are too big or unsuitable for operation with reduced dexterity so a small, specialised unit still makes a lot of sense.

  • First look: new Garmin Connect1 year 7 weeks agowhile Garmins cycling GPS

    while Garmins cycling GPS hardware seems to be head and shoulders above all others, you definitely get the feeling that their developers are either absolutely terrible, or just don't care.

    if I had to guess, I would say that Garmin has outsourced their development to a company that only cares about fulfilling a contract, instead of caring about the actual finished product. this is reflected in the extraordinarily poor execution of their firmware for various of their devices, and especially this "modern" Carmin Connect, which is just riddled with problems.

    Costrast this with Endomondo or Strava, where (my understanding is that) the people who starting programming the sites actually own them, and care about the finished product.

    I would also hazard a guess that Strava and Endomondo programmers use their own sites, but not many Garmin developers use GC or the various Garmin sports devices.

    just speculating...
