Sure, they're a monopoly so I guess you just need to take what you get. I thought the explanation might be of interest since you didn't seem to understand. Sorry, I have no dog in that race, I'm in my "post-Garmin" phase now.
Here's a major question I have as well...they don't mention that the aerial view is 12 years old. Is Birdseye updated? Why don't they say what the source date is? I think they hope you don't think about that.
I dropped mine on the driveway last week and now I have two horizontal lines across the screen connected by sound wave lines that won't go away. Hopefully this problem does not expand or I will have to buy a new one.
