TARGET - False advertising

Product: Garmin GPS Nuvi40

Company: TARGET

Location: US

Category: Stores, Shopping

My sister and I both purchased Garmin Nuvi40 GPS systems from Target in December of 2011. The ad said they came with free lifetime maps! As we were new to GPS systems, we didn't realize that LM would have been after the model number to indicate Lifetime Maps. So, a year later we are stuck with GPS systems that we must pay $90-$125 to get maps updated or take the chance of being somewhere and not having the up to date maps we might need. I contacted both Target and Garmin and Target said they are sorry for our experience and they'll pass the info. along to managements, etc. even though they know that doesn't help us. Garmin said we have to handle with Target. So, my dealing with TARGET are over! I will stick with Walmart who sticks behind their products! No wonder Target always has empty aisles....they probably do this regularly to customers and don't stand behind their products! DON'T GO TO TARGET...go where the stores value their customers!
