They may well 'brick' a lot of units, no real problem for us of course but they will p**s off a LOT of layman users if they don't fix this real quick. I know you were being humourous, but the cynical view that they are doing it intentionally to sell more units doesn't wash of course. They will go thru some real pain and will have the blame fairly and squarely laid at their door. The garmin techs will be clocking overtime if it keeps going. This is purely a cock up by someone and it will be interesting to see how widespread it is. Many units will probably simply not load the wrong fw, but some may.
