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.

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.

The device comes with lifetime free updates, so the year it is made should not matter. It was most likely manufactured quite recently though.

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.

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)
