the maps for any Garmin device are said to work with GMPC (per their techs) and given this you will always be able to update the GMPC maps until some radical new platform comes out.
when i discussed this with them last week they also stated that given all the new android and windows 7 tablets that are coming out this year it would be "highly likely" that Garmin will release a new, better program to replace GMPC, so i wouldn't worry!
I do not want to borrow anyones software. I would buy my own update which supposedly the updates for the NUVI product will work. It will likely be a year before I am too worried about it anyways. I have the 2010 maps now. If 2011 maps are out for the NUVI, I might update soon.
