Well, being curious, I just called Garmin support, mobile, blackberry, etc. Spoke with a TechSupport guy who spoke with a specialist. They apparently don't really know the 8830/verizon but at the end, said there was NO trial and that I could purchase the software and THEIR gps-device and try it. They did not know if it would work with my Freedom puck. We both chuckled as I said I would be willing to test it for them. NO GO!
I am not currently in the mood to waste $99.00.
Someone want to be the first on the Verizon 8830 block?
