Bricked Nav IV
Well, I was attempting to update my Nav IV with new maps. Something went wrong, and I couldn't get view the maps. So, I did a reinstall of the maps. Now whatever I did there, bricked the POS Garmin junk garbage. etc. etc.
I'm out of warranty, so to get it replaced will cost me $150, despite it was their updater that bricked my Nav IV. I'm going to beg them to reduce that price, since it was their fault. Anyone have such luck with Garmin, who is notorious for not being very good about customer service?
Or should I talk to BMW?
Apparently bricking during updating is relatively common. I should have read up and determined if people were having problems.
Once again, this doesn't happen to my devices from Apple. And I beta test all their software, and rarely even then do I have major problem.
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence." That's why we know the earth is 4.5 billion years old, that vaccines are safe and effective, that GMO crops don't cause cancer, that anthropogenic global warming is a thing, and that sasquatch does not exist. But mostly it means that any oil works as well as another one.
