    I bought the Garmin 250 (European Mapping) and having a big problem. The GPS shows me that there's not enough memory to calculate my routes. For example even from west of England to Germany I can't get a direction... Could you, please, tell me why? What should I do then? Is there like a distance (let's say 800 km?) when the unit doesnn't work after? Thank you

    Any help would be appreciated regarding the difference between the new 200 line with the 350 would be helpful. Thanks,
