Probably - if GARMIN behave as they did for previous updates. They will need to keep the original purchase receipt to prove date of purchase. There have been reports in this forum of nuvis shiping with V2008 for a few weeks now.

Usually any unit bought after the new maps where released will get a free upgrade, however the upgrade is not due until Feb / March according to Garmin.

I had problems logging in the other day, when I recieved a return message from Garmin,
I also asked the question. Are Garmin going to update items brought in Dec which have V9 maps. I was sent back the following from Garmin.

If the unit was purchased after 01.12.07 then when the 2008 mapping comes out which should be about February then yes you can get the update for free.

I also asked how I would be informed of the Maps release, again sent the following :-

If you have signed up for email notification from yo ur mygarmin account you will get an email when the update is available.

Hope this helps

Dave
