A great addition to free POI updates. Garmin now do a one off payment for updates as long as you own your gps device. It will update 4 times a year for as long as you own your gps device.

Have downloaded 2 updates so far and the next is due around end of June 2010. You get 4 updates each year, so well worth the cost.

I have a nuvi 765T that cqame with free lifetime updates. Does Garmin let you know via email when there is an update, or do you have to go to the Garmin site periodically?

Register the device and then select My Account>"Manage E-mail Notifications". Then select "Please notify me by email of future map updates". It will then alert you of any available updates.

I've done the lifetime map up grade program too.
I just completed the recent map upgrade. It took hours! Not putting it into the Garmin -- the d/l part. How long did it take for your d/l?
Is there a way to be able to just download any changes?
Thanks

Hi,

I've just purchased a nuvi1390T & have already installed the free update which is quite good here in Brisbane except for a few major new roads. Assuming the new update comes out at the end of June, hopefully these new roads will be in that one. I intend to purchase the lifetime update at that time. I would say there is no way of downloading small updates as it appears only the entire file is available. Providing you have a broadband connection, it shouldn't take too long.

Thanks

The simple answer is : NO
because you must download complete new set of map.
Garmin doesn't send you an update just the new map which is updated at Garmin.
As we all 'grow' a bit so are the maps ! More roads, names details etc.
One day we may end with a map as big as 500-600MB!
If you paid and demand something - here it comes.
BTW - the way to speed the download is to get yourself a better connection to the net.... Very Happy

I do updates quite regularly - have lifetime subscriptions for both nuvi 5000 and nuvi 1350T - they're a great offer from Garmin.

If you have a slow internet connection, they WILL take "forever". With high-speed cable internet its quite manageable. The latest North America maps are a 2.2 GB file that takes me about 10 - 15 minutes to download.
