Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The good news is: Yes, just make sure you don't rent a car that is eccentric or 'non-smoking' and does not have a cigarette lighter plug at all.

All cars pretty much, run on 12 V batteries, so their voltage is the same. And that is what the cigarette lighter adapter runs off of.

As for the map and "how long" - it depends on how you bought it - as a map file on a card? then get delivery information. It could take longer than 3 days if not expedited delivery! - as a download? then get your own blank memory card (compatible with your Nuvi's memory card slot) ready, and download it, and store it onto that memory card.

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
