Not interested. I am moving into the post-Garmin era. Very happy with my iPhone 6s Plus and several apps that let me use my own maps.

I am not likely to ever buy another GPS device from Garmin, their hardware really can't keep up with the smartphone market. I think they are missing the boat here, because I would pay a premium price for an iOS app that gave me all the features of their dedicated devices.

But that isn't likely, they are too fixated on protecting their hardware market. I have their StreetPilot app and it is very good, it has replaced my Nuvi. But they intentionally cripple it by removing a few key features.
