Garmin dispute sales predictions, pointedly ignore Android device rumors

Garmin have responded to the same Digitimes report yesterday that suggested the company was planning a new range of Android-based devices in the second half of 2009.  The primary point of disagreement is in Digitimes' "sales figures and product rollout schedules"; quoting Garmin's Asia Pacific marketing director Tony An, the publication claimed that 2008 total sales would amount to 18 million units.  Now Garmin appear to be distancing themselves from those predictions, perhaps paving the way for lower performance figures.

Garmin Nuvi 510 weatherproof touchscreen GPS

At first glance we'd expect Garmin's new Nuvi 510 to be a budget model.  After all, the 3.5-inch screen is smaller (and regular aspect rather than widescreen) than most other new GPS devices we see, and there's no fancy graphics or clever 3D building renders.  However Garmin intend the 510 to be used not only in a car but on a motorbike and at sea, and so the feature set is slanted toward that.
