User Questions:

After reading your brilliant site (among others) I bought a Nuvi 250 in New Zealand (pre-loaded with NZ mapping) and I'm very happy with it. Now I want to use it for a summer tour of the UK and Europe, which means buying an SD card with Europe mapping. So far, so sensible. But the cost of buying the Europe mapping here in NZ is almost the same as buying a new 250, and substantially more than buying a new 250 with Europe mapping in Europe. It works out even more expensive buying Europe mapping from the USA - much more than I paid for the unit itself down under. I understand dealers make money from selling the mapping, but this is getting silly. Has anyone any bright ideas as to how to buy Europe mapping at a reasonable price - and certainly cheaper than a complete new unit? Wandering Kiwi.

Jays question: Sony NV-U83T: Bluetooth, text to speech, widescreen, feelings - $500 - Nuvi 760 for 480 - better spec, better system.

I bought a charging set for my Garmin 250, including mains, usb and in car charger. It doesnt seem to charge my Sat Nav , rather it just brings up a computer sign. Will this product ever work or will need to buy another one? Thanks, Conor

I am shortly going to the west coast of America. Am i able to update my BMW Motorrad Navigator II to cover this area . How much and where from please Thankyou. Brian.
I'm pretty sure the BMW Motorrad Navigator II is the same as a Garmin StreetPilot 2610 . See this page to confirm .
That means you need the Garmin MapSource® City Navigator North America DVD .
Please check with Garmin before you buy though!
