    Hi Stig
    I updated my Garmin via the Internet, Loaded the wrong areas first so rang them up to get the right areas I wanted then deleted and reloaded all working ok, worth a call. This was my first update on it so that may be a difference ? to yourself. Pete :thumb::thumb:

    I've go the same model Garmin. This all sounds very clever. Are there any downloads I would find useful? I must say, we went through France, Germany and Belgium and it gave us directions all the way.
