Garmin Nuvi Sat Nav-Greece!

Have a Garmin Nuvi sat nav with life time free down load of maps.
Have been in to the Garmin website to find out if my sat nav will have maps of Greece on it(but can't make sense of it,) can you help please. Off to Greece end of August.

My Garmin Nuvi has Greece loaded on it as part of the European-wide mapping.

In 'Where to?' try entering a Greek address such as Heraklion and seeing if it comes up with a map. It will give an idea of what detail your Nuvi will show.

The Garmin Nuvi I have, T1490, is not as smart as they make out!

You have to tell it that you are in the country you are in.....even when you're say sat in France, it'll show on the map you are in France, but when you search for an address in France and you don't say it's in France (by changing the country at the top of the screen) it won't find the address.

So yes you will have Greece in there (if you have European mapping) but you need to select it.

Silly me but I would like to think when the sat nav picks up when I'm in France (or anywhere else) it would automatically search that database!!
