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.

This was listed on here for $99.00 from black Friday up until a day ago. There were a lot of positive reviews on it. Since the price has changed it looks like they wiped out all of the previous reviews. If you look on amazon.com it is listed there with a bunch of mostly positive reviews.

This is a newer model, and has fewer features than more expensive models (no Memory card slot, no Blue tooth) to allow lower price.

Fot automobile navigation this model is every bit as good as models costing twice as much.

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.
