    Default Drive 40LM map inconsistency

    Hi - I have maps CN Europe NTU 2018.20 Foursquare, and CN Europe NTU 2018.20 UK & Ireland.

    I want to go to Germany from the UK.

    I can see on my device France and Netherlands when I select change country, but no Belgium. I have 1.7gig left on memory. Which maps should I buy? All of Europe won't fit, and Germany doesn't include Belgium...

    Can an expert tell me what the best option is?

    You could buy two maps, Alps & DACH to get Germany and France & Benelux to get Belgium:

    ... but, at 35 quid a pop, they'll cost you almost as much as buying all EU NTU for 75 quid:

    for 5.01 more I guess that's a no-brainer. Although you can't fit all of EU on your device, you could use the PC Installed data to load only the regions you need to either the device or onto a microSD. Alternatively buy the microSD version which will allow you to move the mapping to any other compatible Garmin device (because the mapping is locked to the ID of the card, not the ID of the device). Buying from a 3rd party like Amazon will maybe get it even cheaper.

    Another possibility to investigate is buying another Garmin device with full EU as OEM from ebay or gumtree. For under 100 you'll probably find a recent LM model and you can always sell it on later after your trip.

    1. You have only UK & Ireland a roads map! Foursquare is only Foursquare database.
    2. You do not have France and Netherlands in its entirety. There are only some villages that take place on map of UK & Ireland due to dividing of map segments (which are not equal with state border) occasionally.

    Close, but the reason he's seeing some France mapping is because the northern coastal areas of France are included with UK & ROI map to assist with navigation after crossing the channel into France from UK.

    Oi that's odd, it's like a map for US should have some border area of Canada and Mexico for "border crossing."

    Not so much 'odd' as inconsistent. Just like the Limeys get some of France, those Canucks get US border states:

    but it seems France can't be trusted with any UK tiles:

    However, nor does the lower US get any of Canada or Mexico and we all know the USA is TOTALLY trustworthy:

    Also the Donald would have totally insisted on USA getting Canadian border states if Garmin had had the hide to give bits of CA, AZ, NM & TX to the Mexicans:

    Phew!

    That's interesting, never saw the Canadian map that way before. I guess the Canadian's demanded (ok requested) Garmin gives them those border states just in case they get lost. If you are using US map, I guess, you also wants Canada and Mexico (people do travel), therefore you'll buy North America map instead of sticking to US only. Does Garmin even sell US or Mexico map only?

    Ah ha ha, when there was post about the 49 states, I always thought someone made it via mapsource/mapinstall. Good to know it's from Garmin. Thanks for the info.
