Default Garminfone 2.1

I doubt anyone here has a Garminfone but if they do and you want to update it from 1.6 to 2.1, I found that Garmin had the 2.1 update posted for like a day then took it down.

I stumbled upon it by accident. I got on T-Mobiles forum and saw there had been an update a while back to fix some bugs and I hadn't been on the forums in a while. So I click the link, download the file and bam! I now have the long awaited 2.1 Android update. I let others know and some snagged it before Garmin took it down.
Not sure why they took it down but the phone is quite a bit faster, looks better (customizable screens now) and new features, the GPS part even has new features like if you are speeding it shows the speed limit for the road you are on but then your speed is in bold red letters
It really made a big difference with this phone. I am even thinking about trading her my Vibrant phone for her Garminfone.

Anyways if anyone needs this file I still have it on the computer, it is 307mb though.

I would LOVE to get a copy of this file for my Garminfone. Let me know how you'd like to handle it. Can provide a FTP site for you to upload if that helps.

Nappy that someone was Garmin. It was on their site but then it went down. The link was even posted in their FAQ online as a link to download an older update to fix a wifi problem. Not sure why they took the link down but 2.1 is working great on the phone.

Yea I am pretty damn awesome.

I just hope Garmin doesn't send guys in helicopters to my house to kill me now that I let the cat out of the bag when I found this update on their site.
I would try to scramble their GPS so they can't find my house but damn it they make the damn things.
