I then went online to Garmin and attempted to unlock an additional region. I was able to get as far as a credit card entry form, so I'm assuming I'll be good if I continue further. I didn't bother as 2009.5 is supposed to be out very soon. Once it's out, I'll be able to update my 2008.5 to 2009.5 at a cost per region and then purchase additional 2009.5 regions. I might as well wait until we're about to jump across the Gulf Stream before taking the plunge.
