Define "product's useful life." Who or what defines "useful life" mentioned in note #1? Is it as long as the unit is serviceable, while it remains in the possession of the original owner, or is it a period of time defined by Garmin? This sounds like it was written by a politician, not a reputable company.

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
