Old version: good, new version is very bad value for money
on 21 April 2010
I bought the "old version" with my first 1490T.
Very nice finish, magnet to keep it closed.
The 1490T fits in perfectly and there is a opening the size of the screen so that you can operate your navigator while on foot.
The only down part is no belt buckle: make sure you have giant pockets.
But I bought the "new" version in december 2010 and I am very disapointed.
The finish is nowhere near as good, the nice magnet that open and close easy have been replaced by sticky hooks.
The nice garmin metal logo we can see on the picture has been replaced by a printed white garmin logo.
The case is more rigid, still no belt buckle and the screen size opening has been removed so now you cannot use your navigator while it is in the pounch.
In other term, it's just a simple case, in no way better than the other ones that are a third of the price.
Really bad value for money !
If you want to buy it, ask if it is the old or the new version !
Keep away from the new version !
