Garmin Mapsource NT 2008

I bought a Garmin in May of 2007 and it came with Mapsource NT Ver. 8. They just released Ver. 2008.

So, if you bought a Garmin GPS in the past 90 days and it came with Ver. 8, call tech support, fax or e-mail in your proof of purchase and they will send you an update at no charge. That's a $70 update, btw. It will update the maps on your GPS. It takes about an hour. I got my update in about 3 days.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Sweet. Though the only proof I have might be my credit card statement, so hope they can accept that.

Thanks for the tip! I registered on line when I purchased. I sent them an email and they responded right away. They'll be shipping my update on the 24th.
