I just received the following in an e-mail from Garmin. Makes me feel good after updating a couple of months ago for the same price.

This $69.99 update offers full coverage for the U.S, Canada and Puerto Rico - making it easy and convenient to update the detailed maps and latest points of interest into your compatible Garmin unit.
The update includes:

The folks over at GPS Passion (G p s P a s S i o n) are equally thrilled. 6 months ago they had the 2008 map, now in June we have the 2009 map. What are they gonna call in in 2009, I wonder?

It's available on Usenet, ABCDI. 3 gigs.
