Pat, May 12, 2013 I bought the GPS for my bike and bought the Europe chip to use on the gps as a walking and auto tool for a Europe vacation. I found it easy to load and use
Tom, May 4, 2013 Just got back from a 5 day drive through Tuscany, and I think I would still be there if it were not for my 1390LMT and the Europe maps. Other than two occasions (telling me to go straight when the road signs said to take the ramp to the town I was going to, and another time when the gps told me to make a left against a one way street in Siena - which in retrospect was good, because it caused me to stop and make a U-Turn instead of driving into a ZTL zone), the GPS and the Europe Map worked wonderfully. Carrying a map would be worthwhile to give you an idea of where you are. It was even helpful in pedestrian mode, and the 'set location' was a life saver.
Clayton, May 1, 2013 These maps were essential for driving in Italy, but I would strongly recommend taking along printed maps as well.
Roads signage, especially in the cities is a bit different than we are used to in the states and you are unlikely to recognise the road names while driving (they change multiple times on the same street). Having a printed map makes up for the fact that the GPS screen view often doesn't give enough perspective about the twists and turns to get to your destination.
If you don't have a printed map make sure you have a accurate street number address for your final destination - a nearby address won't be good enough.
Some roads the GPS wants to send you on will be pretty narrow and you'll need some way to decide if you are going to ignore the turn and let her recalculate.
If you use the GPS in a city, be aware that there are some areas in Italian cities that are traffic limited (ZTL) - the GPS won't warn you about these. Cameras will take your picture and you can get a pretty hefty ticket.
Despite any limitations, very glad to have this map update. The installation tips on the GPScity web site were very helpful - especially to update the firmware before using the maps.
PaulW, April 17, 2013 I tried obtaining Garmin GPS maps from other tech providers but got no where. I went to the GPSCITY site and could not believe how complete the website was. Very easy to navigate and place an order. Instant response, good prices and quick delivery. The product was exactly what I wanted and worked perfectly. Thanks GPSCITY. I will be back.
