    The lifetime update is down to £59.99 (from £74.99 which is what I paid last year, and I thought I got a limited-time special offer then!).

    I paid £74.99 as well. Don't suppose we can claim a rebate can we ::bigsmile: Having said that, it is only a limited offer until 11th January 2012 and I still reckon I got a good deal compared to TomTom ::bigsmile:

    Usually when I purchase technology it's the kiss of death....hardware is discontinued, software is no longer supported, etc. I'm amazed Garmin didn't stop supporting my nuvi 255w the second I purchased the 'lifetime' map updates :Smile:

    I use a 4 year old Garmin Zumo ,is it worth me paying £50 for a lifetime update?
    Do the roads alter that much ,here and in France in 4 years?

    Would consider it at the lower price
