Anyone purchased the new map update from Garmin? If so, what is your opinion? Is it worth the money. Thanks!

Is it worth it? I dunno. I bought it as my GPS data was getting old. It uploaded onto the NUvi effortlessly without a hitch.
So far, I have not goten lost.
My car has a built in and it is 3 years old. The dealer wants $250.00 for the update. I said NO way !
At least the garmin was reasonable...

Hard to say. Ordered it a month ago, and two weeks later, got an email that it was on backorder. Will let you know when I get it.
I purchased it on line on a Monday and had it several days later from a 3rd party vender. Proadvantage.
Fast service and I have used them for other items as well.
