Default Got an s50 for xmas

Got the s50 with home and car kits. It had problems right out of the box. I updated the firmware and that seemed to resolve some issues. Seemed to work better in the car. Got to cruise the channels yesterday and this morning. Got out for lunch all excited about checking it out some more and it was DEAD. wouldn't get past the splash screen. I followed instructions from searches made on this site with no luck. I even did the three finger salute without any change at all. Going back to CC tomorrow for an exchange but noticed one thing on all the sites... it's no longer sold. Do you think they will have any? If not which model do you recommend? thanks for all and any advice.

Got my money back.

Took it to another shop and found the s50. they had three upstairs in a corner they had forgotten about!!! IT WORKS!

Thinking about not upgrading the firmware??? It's on 1.2 now. What do you think?

Check out the S50 Forum. I didn't upgrade my old S50 from 1.2 to 1.4, it froze up and I had to send it back. The new one I recieved has 1.4 and I like it so far. Just search the S50 forum, there's a few threads about this topic.
