Question: Is it worth it to pay another for an update for an outdated GPS unit, when you don't even know if the updates will benefit you, or should one just buy a more up-to-date GPS instead? then they said check to check on-line on October 15th.Magellan website now says Roadmate 760 update will be available in September, and come September, who knows, it may be pushed back even later.

Magellan provides map upgrades about once every 15 months, as of 2015.
