    I just can't say no to $5 gps units, so I tend to collect quite a few in my journeys through thrift stores.

    Today I found a Nuvi 1350 complete and in good shape for $5, and when I go it home, I found it had Lifetime Map Updates, and included a GTM-25 traffic alert cable. It had never been registered, so I did that through Garmin Express, and let it apply all the suggested updates.

    So now it's all updated with the latest firmware and 2019 maps, and should be really useful to someone who's in need of it.
