I was reading about the Cobra GPSM 3000 Nav One Portable Mobile Navigation System (which has been discontinued), and one of the features is listed as:

North America Street-Level Detail Map on Board and Fully Unlocked

Does that effectively mean I have some alternative source to get map updates for this device?

I'm guessing that the maps are navteq, because Cobra switched to Tele Atlas in May 2006, and this device is probably older.

Some manufacturers pre-load a range of maps with only some 'unlocked' To get the others unlocked you pay for an unlock key which activated them.

All it means in this case is all the US maps are installed and available to you without further payment.
