This model may have map for all North America. But the model from Walmart only have the lower 49 states. I ordered this model from Walmart in 2012. It does not have Canadian maps. The description didn't say anything about this. Canadian maps can be download from garmin.com for $60 (more than half the cost of the device).

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.
