Just out of interest does anyone know what is the oldest supported device for free map updates and also for paid updates?

Also what year was the device released?

Not really an answer to the question, which would be: I don't know...but
I've got a Nuvi 360, not sure when it was released, or when I bought it, but first available on Amazon October 2001.
It still gets map updates now and then through Garmin Express.
I used to use it on the bike, and still use it in preference to the standard fit car Tom Tom, I'd also take it away on holiday if I plan to use a hire car as the world wide OSM maps work very well.

I have a nuvi 780 that I've used for at least 12 yrs. It was past it's prime then when I got it but it still updates maps via Garmin Express when I plug it in. I've replaced the digitizer and screen and it's slow but it still works most of the time. I still prefer it over the 595.

My Zumo 550 still gets map updates based on my Lifetime map subscription. I got mine sometime in 2008, if memory serves.
