    Hi guys,

    I'm about to buy a used NAV 5 for my bmw xr 1000 2017. The question i have is,  since im buying it used from someone else, will i still have access to the lifetime maps updating from garmin.
    Thanks

    Just make sure that the previous owner de-registers it from their Garmin account.  That allows you to register it to your own "MyGarmin" and get lifetime updates.

    If they never registered it and owned it from new - there is nothing to do.

    I recently purchased a used Nav V for my wife, registered it and get the free update maps. I have no idea if the previous owner de-registered or not, but would not be a bad idea.

    He must have (or never registered it/updated maps)
