        Yes, the LM in model number indicates the unit does come with free Lifetime Map updates. Map updates will update the preloaded mapping (USA - Lower 49 States) on the device. Thank you. *CG

          Answer

          Map updates are very large files, and download times vary based on your internet connection/speed. It may take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, to several hours to download depending on the speed of your Internet connection. The download is not suitable for use with dial-up Internet access or Satellite Internet Providers. Thank you. *CG

          Answer

          The nüvi 57LM has internal-rechargeable batteries that are not consumer replaceable. There is a battery icon present at the top of the screen when it’s not being charged. You can charge the nüvi with the vehicle power cable (included in the box) or the USB cable connected to a computer indoors, also included in the box. ~JH

          Yes, the nüvi 57LM can speak street names when navigating. It also features Garmin Real Directions, which are easy-to-understand driving directions that guide like a friend using recognizable landmarks, buildings and traffic lights, such as “Turn left after the gas station.” ^DK

        Can you please tell me which Garmin models includes navigation for both the United States of America and Canada.   (1 Answer)

          Answer

          I just found out the hard way but none of the Garmin units carried at Best Buy US have Canadian maps loaded. I pulled into Canada (drove up from Seattle), and noticed the maps stopped loading. I just assumed they were included because the one I'm replacing from 10+ years ago has all of North America. I pulled into a Best Buy Canada and bought one there instead. I returned the one I bought in the US because the Canadian map download would have been $60.
