Question

Does the Garmin nuvi 50LM display Advertisements?

I have read that some Garmins will pop up advertisements for businesses you happen to be near in traffic. I would find this quite annoying and will not pay to have more ads thrown at me. Does this Garmin display any Advertisements? Does it display anything other than map and traffic information? If so, is there a model that only displays map and traffic information?

No, advertisements are only on models that have traffic updates and would have a T in the model #. For example the 50 LMT has traffic updates, but not the 50 LM.

No it is not a water proof unit. I am not sure if there is any vehicle navigation out there that is water proof. Also, the description does not say it's water proof.

No it does not — ONLY US Lower 48. Actually, you can go to Garmin.com and *purchase* Canada maps for $59 (or just buy a Garmin with US & Canada maps preloaded in the first place)

If your unit has the letters "LM" on the model number (as in Nuvi 50LM) you have already paid for the lifetime maps upgrade. No further subscription required.

no - you paid for it when you bought it, up to 4 map updates per year as long as the unit lasts. For me, 2 to 3 years.

answer 2
It charges from the car's 12V port, and that cord is included. It also has a USB cable for hooking it to the computer, and it will charge from that, although much slower. Better to plug it into the car for a bit.

I have a separate 12 volt supply that I use to power other automotive devices in the house. This supply has it's own "lighter" socket that accepts the power plug from any automotive accessory electrical items. These supplies are available separately if you wish, and are quite handy.
