Well a mod over on T-Mobile forums just pmed me and told me that my thread was encouraging piracy somehow. They didn't clearly say what I or anyone else was doing wrong but they didn't want me to "encourage" anyone.
does that even mean? I guess downloading a Garmin update from Garmin's official site for your Garminfone and then telling everyone about the update and sharing it is somehow considered piracy now?

The mod pmed me back and said she was sorry for her tone and that it wasnt me it was someone else posting pirated software. It was actually the guy I sent it to posting a link to download it from his ftp site. They dont want anyone downloading it unless its straight from Garmin I guess.
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.

A couple of people had a problem with me not having a problem with a problem in the PnR section. It grew to be a problem for them although I didn't have a problem with it.

Now do you have a problem with it?
