New Terms and Conditions for Lifetime Map Subscriptions. On June 18, 2018, Magellan posted a FAQ on its website describing the terms and conditions of lifetime map subscriptions (the "FAQ"). Magellan has since learned that some of its customers are not sure whether the terms and conditions in this FAQ apply to the Navigator devices that they purchased. Magellan regrets any confusion that this FAQ may have caused to its customers. Magellan will clarify to its customers that the terms and conditions in this FAQ apply only to RoadMate Navigators with Free Lifetime Map Updates purchased on or after June 30, 2019. The terms and conditions in this FAQ do not apply to RoadMate Navigators with Free Lifetime Map Updates purchased before June 30, 2019. Magellan will update its website, marketing, and packaging of RoadMate Navigators with Free Lifetime Map Updates to state clearly the terms and conditions as provided in the FAQ or advise potential purchasers where they can read the terms and conditions. Magellan will also instruct its third-party resellers and distributors to update their websites and any marketing material and packaging in their possession accordingly. Magellan has already begun implementing these changes and expects to complete these changes by June 30, 2020.
