It depends on the available garmin unit on sale. \:D/ If Garmin decide that they no longer produce GPS device for consumer, then may be map update will not needed.

I'm still using my old nuvi 2575 / Motana with external antenna. Mainly for track logging & navigating areas with bad network reception je.

Phone app also can do trek logging without data line, just need GPS signal.
