Of course you didn't. European and Asian units presumably have additional memory and features not found in the US units. In the US, 1xxx devices have 2GB of internal storage which is no longer sufficient to store the entire map of the United States or North America. Devices like the 1350 and 1390 added Junction View, but those devices are now getting 50MB Junction View files on downloading a map update because of the space constraints.
For me at least, the fact I don't automatically receive a Junction View file when I update a map isn't a problem. I'd rather have the 700MB+ junction view file with its 60,000 images versus a 50MB file with perhaps a tenth that amount.
