Customer Question
I bought a Garmin...

I bought a Garmin Nuvi 2689 for my car a while ago, and am very happy with it.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Nuvi?

I bought it this year, from Amazon. I am in the process of buying a new car that comes "prewired for accessory Garmin MAP PILOT navigation system". Would it be possible to load the software onto an SD card, and insert that card in the appropriate slot in the car? The car is a Mercedes CLA 250.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Garmin?

Nothing yet. I haven't bought the car yet. I use my Garmin as a stand alone in my old car, or when I rent a car during travels.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the GPS Expert to know before I connect you?

Yes. Can I just use software that comes with Garmin Express (lifetime map updates), or am I stuck with buying the Mercedes SD cards?
