Just odd that they have a rooting forum on their site and that's ok but don't dare share an update from an official Garmin link on their site for your Garminfone.

She then pmed me and said it was illegal to host copyrighted Garmin software on another site. Could be, I don't know, I'm not a lawyer. Glad I got the file when I did though.
Well, Garmin put the file up temporarily. You didn't illegally obtain the file. If they made it available to everyone, then I don't see the problem in you distributing it through free sites.

If they issue a cease and desist, though, you should probably stop.
