Is it possible to have crappier owner's manuals than Garmin? (Read 395 times)

RabbitRunner


    Garmin's customer service and their products are great, but yes, their manuals are weak.  It's best to just figure it out as you go along.

      99.9% of people do not crack open manuals beyond "how to put the batteries in" and basic setup stuff.  Lots of companies stopped writing detailed user manuals.

       

      As for the question in the subject line, yes.  Yes it is.

       

      And Merry Christmas.  Look on the bright side.

              Well, generally speaking there is no limit to how badly things can be done, so I would lean towards saying yes, it is possible.

                            When you go through his whole piece on it., it's easy to see why they didn't include all of that in print form!  I actually broke it up into three viewings.
