    Means they can just declare a product as EoL/EoS (End of life/End of support) after say, two years, and claim that the product is not supported anymore. But there are always work arounds, and there are people who only work on work arounds.
    By the way, garmin devices are very rugged and built-to-last, like our FIATs :)

    Yes it does come with Voice Navigation, and re-route option, I had tried the re-route option once, when there was a traffic block and chose to ignore the route indicated by Sygic, for a min or two it asked me to take a U turn, when it got to a turn ahead it immediately calculated and instructed me to take the route now charted by it, it merged with the original route after some 2 - 3 kms helped me avoid a lot of burning of fuel waiting in the traffic.
    Yes I fix it on windshield, I have on of the Mobile Mounts on the windshield.

    The best way to find out the version of the map is to use the 'Map Info' option in your GPS device.

    Press the "Map Sources & copyrights". Then go two pages down, before the End User License Agreement, you will see:

    India
    All Map Data Copyright CE Info Systems (P) Ltd,
    Version x.x, expires xx.xx.xxxx

    Note: latest is version 7.0

    How much MMI charge for MMI users for upgrade to latest map. For garmin users getting MMI map is sold at a premium price.
