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.

Yes, a charger to use in the car.

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.

Yes there was a vehicle charger, a usb cord, and the window mount. It did not have a plug for an electrical outlet to charge without using the computer. Since I had one for my iPhone that fit the usb connection I used it.

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)
