Garmen bought in US will work in EU?

The G in GPS stands for "Global" :ph34r:. But your basemap will be limited to non-existant. Garmin loads a North American basemap on its US mapping units, and a European basemap on its EU units. They are loaded onto unwritable (or at least non-user addressable) memory in the unit and cant be changed.

It will work just fine where ever you are in the world, as long as you can pick up satelites. My Legend has been to Europe, the Middle East and Japan and never had an issue. While you do not say what model you have, I think it would be nice to have some basic maps on my GPS while I travel. I picked up Roads and Recreation for Europe V4 on EBay for about $25.00.
