Fatal flaw(s): Nothing particularly fatal, just not special enough
When Apple introduced the iPhone it touted it as the best iPod ever made with the best phone ever made. When Garmin, for whatever reason, decided to enter the smartphone game, it touted its Nuvifone as the best map phone on the market. The only problem was: at that time, almost every phone had access to map apps. The iPhone's Google Maps app being a shining example. With nothing to peddle besides geo-location features and the ability to use it as a full-fledged navigation device, Garmin realized it was out of its league and discontinued the line in 2010.
