Default Is Garmin now charging for Software updates?

http://www8.garmin.com/support/downl...ls.jsp?id=3917

I used to be able to download the most recent software updates for my 4210 for free from their website. It now says I need to buy a card for $30? Is this correct or am I missing something?
Thanks.

Missing something. U can download it off the website with ur own card. Or they can send it to u on a new card.

What happens is that they charge you if they provide the card..... But they give you a return number, and if you return the card and quote the number, they refund you the cost of the card after you have done the upgrade
