I was surpise because nothing on and in the box was in french...

Cool! I wonder how many other languages are supported this way!

It looks like at least French, Spanish, German and Italian. At least those are the other languages that manuals are available for. .... Yes, if you look at the things that were added in the 5.00.10g update it says that support for British English, French, Italian, Spanish and German were added.

Nice. I wonder if the user interface, not just the voice prompts, supports all the above languages.

Can the Garmin Mobile PC software version only be installed on 2 separate laptops using the same 3rd party GPS receiver and same for the bundle version using the GPS 20x receiver (2 laptops)

Good question. There has been a several pages long discussion on this confusing topic: http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/543-garmin-mobile-pc-activation-limit

Alain,
That answer was for travelbug.

I don't see anything on the Garmin site about buying licenses for Mobile PC. I suggest you phone them. 1-866-429-9296

If you bought the version with the GPS20x then you have to use it with the GPS20x or give Garmin more money; YEAH it's like that.

This site does not support giving away a "new activation key" maybe someone out there in G-O-O-G-L-E land can help you.

Yes. You need the Franson GPSGate program. It will convert the proprietary Garmin protocol from the GPS20x into the standard NMEA protocol that Streets&Trips needs.
