You should always update if you want the latest of everything....however if you take some time and read posts on this forum you'll realise that latest isn't always best.

The software / firmware for the I3 is stored inside its own internal memory.

The maps / POIs / coice files could be on the memory card or on the internal memory or a mixture of both depending on exactly which I3 you have, theres been a few tweaks done by Garmin.

The software for things like the GPS receiver (and on on other garmin models the traffic receiver and the Bluetooth).

That would indicate that all your mapping is on board, rather than stored on the card

You will need to use a card reader for this. If you don't have one then have a look at http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_6&products_id=100315
