GARMIN EDGE 800 - which maps?

Postby Mr Goo » Mon Mar 11, 2013 19:28 pm

Have been looking at buying a Garmin Edge 800 either on Fleebay or Interweb. But I am getting slightly confused by the maps that come with the various packages ie; European / City / UK etc etc. Does the European include detailed road maps of the UK or just the main roads? Does a standard UK map pack have all the minor roads?
Could somebody just tell me which map I need that will include all the minor UK roads.? Cheers.

Did you put this in t wrong forum perhaps?

If you think there is the slightest chance of needing OS maps (Eg off road) then get it in the bundle as it's ball breakingly expensive otherwise. However if not then the Garmin City Navigator maps do every small road in the UK, but do not have things like cycle paths on and such.

That said, the Open source maps are phenomenally good to be honest and now have both bike paths AND roads on them...
