It is a really real shame that Garmin-Asus won’t make an Android 2.3 upgrade for the A10 as it goes opposite to what they said before, quote: ” (…) The two companies will not introduce any new cobranded handset models going forward, but will continue to sell and support models that have already been introduced to the market. (…) Customer support continues to be of utmost importance to Garmin and ASUS, and Garmin-Asus
smartphone customers will continue to receive product support, software updates and/or downloads from either Garmin or Asus, depending upon the region. (…)”
And here’s the source:
Croma is selling this phone for Rs. 15k. There is a free offer where you get a 21" tv or 20L microwave or 10mp digicam free when you buy this phone.

It has work flawlessly since I bought it 5 months ago .
I have used it ever day for both business and personal use .
The GPS has been very accurate and has done a better job than my navman unit which isn't used much now .
Again I say this is a great phone and I would recommend to everyone to buy one .
Let the buyer beware!
As an owner of a Garmin-Asus A10 smartphone, it has come to my attention that every single LCD panel Asus uses in that phone has a significant amount of lazy pixels. After sending it back to Asus for repairs several times, every LCD panel they have replaced have come back equally flawed. Refunds are not available.
To see the lazy/dead pixels i am talking about, download the app "Dead Pixel Test" from the market. The dead pixels will become very apparent on the black screen of the app especially in a dark room. Be warned, once you see it, it will bug you forever, if you never found it, you may not even notice it.
Suffice to say, i am extremely skeptical of their products now. Protect yourselves and do not purchase from this company unless you can be guaranteed a refund.
I pray you have a better experience with them than i did.
PS: For a more balanced review, let me just say that the GPS receiver is excellent in this unit. I have been able to get a lock indoors faster than i would using a standalone Garmin GPS. Navigation falls short of my expectations for Garmin however, as the 600MHz processor is unable to keep up. The fact that it runs Eclair makes it a passable PDA, however, the phone's antenna does not match up to the quality of its GPS antenna, and i get no signal where i am able to obtain a weak/medium signal with a Nokia 5800. Sunlight legibility is okay, but not enough for the pedestrian navigation the phone is supposedly built for. In terms of battery life, it drains about 10% overnight with 3G on. The GPS receiver is turned on by default, which is a real drain on battery. With it off, doing some light web browsing (about 30 minutes 3G), IM (Meebo) constantly on (WiFi 7-8 hours, 3G the rest) and about an hour of Angry Birds would drain the battery in roughly 12 hours. Without a phone to compare it to, i cannot say how good/bad the battery life is, but i would assume it is pretty good.
All in all, if it wasn't for the flawed LCD panels, the phone is still a pretty good buy if you are constantly in need of a GPS unit and can live with Eclair. Otherwise, the LG Optimus One would provide more bang for your buck. Not upgrading the phone OS when it was "promised"(apparently read implied) at purchase and failed attempts at repair just shows the attitude the company has toward its customers. As i said, caveat emptor, let the buyer beware.

I checked with the support guys here and they told it is not available yet. but it doesnt mean that upgrade wont be available at all.
I am also waiting for 2.2. Lets hope for the best. :)

U have to upgrade the firmware. I assume that u bought the phone from india. hence upgrade to Indian version. These will be fixed.
My phone went back to its maker 3 times,once after 1 month and 1 day of buying it,then 5 months later and then the 3rd time they-the phone shop where I bought it-did not bother to send it back,they wrote a complaint letter for me. After about 1 week I got a phone call from KPN in the Netherlands and they asked me to explain the problem,I did and they asked if I would like another phone...Of course I said yes so long as it was NOT the Garmin and that the phone actually worked.
They sent me on my existing contract a brand new Samsung Galaxy S..ME VERY happy !!!
It works like a dream. Navigation geo tags everything the Garmin was ment to do but for wat ever reason never did,not properly at any rate.
