"3. I just bought an MSN Direct enabled navigation device, what do I do?
MSN Direct service will continue to be available until 01/01/2012. New 12 Month subscriptions will continue to be offered through December 2010. If service beyond 01/01/2012 is a concern, please see your retailer for information on device returns."
What better example of a company that views it's customer as chattel. How dare they complain about having paid extra for a product that uses a service that will expire in a couple of years (and don't count on it working too well in the mean time by the way).
Message to hardware makers: don't "partner" with Microsoft!
