Garmin Lifetime Updater Review

Sven Sorensen

Keep your nuMaps for Garmin GPS Navis up-to-date for free

A review of Garmin Lifetime Updater by Sven Sørensen

The Garmin Lifetime Updater program is a free application which is useful for those who own Garmin navigation devices.

One of the main uses of this program is to get "lifetime" upgrades to your maps, but the lifetime designation is misleading because you're not actually given unlimited access to map updates.

If you're one who purchased a Garmin license to upgrade for the device lifetime, you are actually allowed to update your maps up to 4 times per year, or quarterly.

Do note that under the license agreement, Garmin may stop providing maps if its 'supplier' ceases to provide updates or if your device breaks.
