If you are referring to VVMapping maps, the first year of updates is free, a subscription for another 12 months is $10.

If you are referring to Garmin maps, it's usually not worth the $$ to update the maps if the updates were not included with the original unit.

Another question, is it worth updating my nuvi 500?? I have not kept up on any of this stuff, but my garmin has been good to me........
That's still a great and desired unit. To get the same functionality & bigger screen you need to upgrade to a Zumo ($$$$) or the Montana ($400+).

Sweet, $10. is a great deal to update what I purchased. I will be trying to get this done soon. Thanks!

What GPS systems are you guys using on your sleds? I use a 276c, but I'd like to have a larger screen.

Sorry, not yet, just Garmin units for now.

Next step up from the 276C is the Montana line. Much better screen and a lot better signal reception (won't wander when under heavy tree canopy). That's a 4" screen. The GPSMap 640 is next one up (Marine line) with a 5" screen. Both are very nice but pretty pricey (Montana starts at $400 on sale).

Nuvi 50 can be found for under $100, has a 5" screen but not waterproof. AquaBox from RAM for ~$60 or a ziplock bag ($0.25) can solve that. The Nuvi line does not support track logs and are fairly limited in features compared to something like the Montana.
