The site info. says it does have internal memory but the maps are preloaded onto the what internal memory it does have when made and u can update what's already there, not load additional. There is no "internal memory" for extra stuff. If you want to add more maps (topo for example) you have to get a data card. I tried to find any information (receipts, purchase info etc) for the lifetime update but no joy. I don't remember if I called or ordered it online...but it works...well, most of the time.

Guess mine is the odd GPS out since the others above seemed to work ok. I tried it again, and again it would only load Canada. Maybe it's telling me something about where I need to go!
I'll have to try and call them back and hope I get someone that'll sell me the lifetime maps. I think mine came with City Nav North America but it was on CD/DVD. So, technically, it wasn't loaded in the GPS. What a silly distinction! What the heck difference does it make whether I have to load it myself or if it was already loaded. If I could find a viable alternative to Garmin, I'd switch.
