From another forum. (VSRI) From 1 July 2008 Garmin will have their own operation in Australia, based in Sydney. GME will no longer be the importer and distributor. Garmin say that the growing use of GPS and falling prices have prompted their move to our shores, they are also third in sales volume behind TomTom and Navman. They say that they will never be a price leader but for those people considering a bike GPS in the near future it may be worth while keeping an eye on Garmin prices.
