Magellan brings map updates to GPS devices

Portable navigation maker Magellan has joined competitors TomTom and Garmin in offering free map updates on its GPS models. Some models, such as the RoadMate 3045-LM, get lifetime map updates, while others, such as the RoadMate 3045-MU, get only a single update.

The lifetime update is actually limited to as many as four updates per year, and either plan is limited to the life of the GPS receiver or until Magellan no longer creates relevant map data. Getting the maps require an Internet connection and Magellan's Content Manager app. [via GPSReview]
