Garmin revisará 1,25 millones de navegadores por sobrecalentamiento

navegador garmin

En mi opinión utilizar un navegador GPS tiene aspectos positivos y negativos (depende de la forma en que lo utilicemos). Lo que no me imaginaba es que entre los efectos negativos pudiera estar que el navegador se incendiara.

Efectivamente Garmin acaba de anunciar que tendrá que revisar 1,25 millones de navegadores, modelo nüvi, debido a que un defecto en las baterías puede provocar que la unidad se sobrecaliente hasta el punto de llegar a incendiarse.

Hasta el momento la compañía sólo ha tenido conocimiento de que esta situación se haya producido en menos de diez ocasiones con unidades del navegador nüvi y afirmó no haber recibido informes de que este eventual defecto haya provocado accidentes ni lesiones a los propietarios de los mismos.


La mayor parte de las unidades afectadas (796.000) fueron vendidas en Estados Unidos, y al parecer la culpa es del provedor de las baterías, que fueron especialmente desarrolladas para estos modelos.

Sinceramente no entiendo como pueden pasar estas cosas. Puedo comprender que haya fallos de fabricación puntuales en aparatos de alta tecnología, pero cuándo hablamos de seguridad vial, es crucial mantener un nivel mínimo de seguridad que garantice que mi navegador no va a empezar a arder mientras conduzco por una autopista.

No digo que los aparatos electrónicos tengan que ser infalibles, pero si, por poner un ejemplo, mi cámara de fotos formatea la tarjeta de memoria, será frustante, pero desde luego el daño causado no es comparable al que puede producir un navegador en llamas dentro de un habitáculo de un vehículo.

  3. I’ve been using the eTrex Legend HCx for a while now and found it very handy for biking. The aitilby to add maps from OpenStreetMap (rather than buying them from Garmin) is certainly a plus. I would recommend any of the newer eTrex models.

  4. Steve / use a cellphone or a cocmapt camera with GPS.This is what I do when I need to geotag with my 60d: whenever I reach a new destination, I should at least one image with my iPhone, and then continue with my 60d.When I’m home, is download all of my picture to my computer, copy the geotagging info from my iPhone picture, and paste it into all the other picture from the same location.I’m using aperture for it but almost any program that support geotagging will let you do that.With all due respect: I carry my cellphone with me anywhere. my cellphone has a GPS built in. Why should I carry another gadget with me?
