Garmin Montana 750i - Lifetime City Navigator Map Updates?

Does the Garmin Montana 750i include lifetime city navigator updates? I see that it comes with City Navigator installed. I cannot see any confirmation that updates are included, or if I am expected to purchase a map any time I want the update.

Typically, in "garminese" the device has to be an "automotive version" to include lifetime city navigator map updates.

If this is included, is there documentation anywhere that says this? I am aware that folks who purchased 750i's when they first came out, do have lifetime updates. I did not want to assume that is still the case.

  • Does that mean if I ordered from Garmin in the U.S. it will only update for U.S.A. maps and not Europe maps?  I'm pretty sure that it will not include Asia maps which I will have to purchase separately.  I dod have a good Japan map but it too is old. 

  • Yesterday I checked with support US. This is their response:

    Hello Geert,
    Only the North America version of the Montana 700i comes with City Navigator that has lifetime updates.  For regions outside of North America, City Navigator must be purchased separately and it is NOT updatable.
    It is a pity. So no Montana for me.
