Actually, #2 is a good thing if I am reading your post correctly. You want the unit laying on it's back with the front facing up. The plastic of the map pocket shouldn't degrade the signal.

So, rather than pull the units from the retail outlets, they are allowing them to be sold knowing that they can't be used. Nice.
