GPS update?

So, the other day, my Garmin GPS, we call her Gretchen, displayed a message saying it had been a year since the last map update and would I like to go online and purchase an update?

Now, folks, just how fast do they build roads nowadays? Even with the stimulus package roads don’t appear in 12 months. It takes that long to fix a pot hole in my part of the country. When GPS display pot holes, then I’ll consider updates every year of so, until then, I’ll pass on this.
