It is also not an issue if you do not buy Garmin. But so what? If you
buy old stock it is an issue. You CAN fix it as you say, but you must
fix it. It is like saying that if you buy a car whose wheels fall off,
it is not an issue if you fix it the problem. True, but it IS an issue
if you have to fix something before it is useable.
