I had asked that question and was told you could buy them anytime so no reason to hold off. However if you're interested in the Lifetime program you might want to get it when it starts in early 2009 as they will normally be releasing quarterly map udpates from that point on.

Quickie question:

Will this work also for the SP2720? (Yes, it uses NT maps).

Garmin SP2720/7.20 Firmware/GTM-12 (5.50)/CNNA NT 2012.30 (Lifetime)
Garmin Nuvi 1690/3.90 Firmware/CNNA NT 2012.30 (Lifetime)
Garmin Nuvi 3790T/4.70 Firmware/CNNA NT 2012.30 (Lifetime)

Well then it should, since I was told NT was the limit ;-)

GPSPASSION,

Did you learn if this "lifetime" maps is only for the City Navigator maps, or will it apply to ALL mapping programs from Garmin, Including the BlueChart series?

Thanks, Tim

Can't remember we discussed this ? I haven't asked specifically yet, but my understanding is that it's nüvi only. I think TomTom's MapShare, 30 days guarantee and "TomTom Map Update" were a big incentive for nüMaps...so we'll need some more competition in the marine arena for BlueChart to get the same type of offer ;-)

gpspassion,

Thanks for the info.... I guess asking for the same type of offer for the Bluecharts.

But I sure do drop a bunlde on all sorts of updates when they come out.

Bluecharts updates are something of a safety update since it deals with navigable waterways cnd channels etc.

Anyone know if Garmin is going to do this, and when?

Kind regards

At last! Thanks for sharing, so it's likely new maps will be available for download for everyone starting on Jan 21st, including under the "nümaps Guarantee". Wonder what they will call them, NT2010 ? NT2009.1 would be preferable...

LOL!! I can't imagine what name they'll go by. Garmin's map naming has been a little misleading for awhile. I'll see if I can ask.

According to the press release, the web site to purchase the lifetime update service is www.garmin.com/numapslifetime which their web team has yet to release to the public. It looks like the marketing guys got an early start today

I love the math they use at their site to justify spending $120:

nüMaps Onetime™: $69.99 USD x 4 optional map updates = up to $279.96 per year

Would anybody really spend $280 a year to stay current?

Depending on the model, you could buy 2 refurbed Nuvi's and download the free upgrades for less than $280.

Actually it reads like : nüMaps Onetime™: $69.99 USD x 4 optional map updates = up to $279.96 per year
nüMaps Lifetime™: seasonal map updates for the life of your device = $119.99 USD

in real small print : nüMaps™ Lifetime. If you purchase a nüMaps Lifetime subscription (sold separately), you will receive up to four (4) map Data updates per year, when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, for one (1) compatible Garmin product until your product’s useful life expires or Garmin no longer receives map Data from NAVTEQ, whichever is shorter.

It all depends on what you need or want. And how long you you intend to keep your unit. It's about time Garmin has come around.

DerbyDad, I hear from TomTom owners all the time that just have to have their latest map, and that's 4 times a year as well. Yeah, I think quite a few owners will jump on this. How many will benefit and/or take advantage of every update is a different issue. The manufacturers count on users either not using the subscription after they bought it or only using it once or twice. Remember, the subscription is not transferrable to another device.
