discontinued products will still receive life time maps if that is what your originally purchased. Its good for the life of the unit itself, cannot be transferred to another gps unit.

No one knows. But with the way things are going, I would be shocked if Garmin is still around in 5 years. Well they might be, but it will just be making an app not a device.

I just sent back in 3490, since it doesn't get traffic in a major city. They don't even give option to switch to old style traffic if the new isn't working. I think I will get the new one where you can pay $20 a year for traffic.

Does "Garmin discontinues it" mean until a replacement model comes out or this model is dropped from Garmin's line (which in itself is arbitrary.) What is the approximate "continued" life cycle that can be expected for a typical unit . . . in years?
This no large investment; however, neither is it a trivial investment.
Thanks

It means until it stops working or garmin discontinues it.
