    I can see your logic. However, it still won't stop you updating 3 months before a trip, only to find France and Spain missing when you roll off the ferry!

    Plot a trip on Basecamp. Download it to the device. Unplug it from the PC. Preview it on the device.
    Surely it won't preview if the right maps aren't installed.

    I was going to update my 390 before I set off on my recent holiday but bottled it and stuck with the original maps. Ok, they’re badly out of date once you’re into Eastern Europe where they’re busy spending their grants upgrading their roads but as long as it’s used in conjunction with a map and you scribble a few notes on a post it and shove that in the top of your tank bag (if you use such a thing) nothing too bad happens

    What I really want is a satnav that can cope with regular updates without dumping parts or needing an extra card to be carried that has good street level mapping of cities outside of Western Europe. My was worse than useless in Warsaw and I ended up using my phone and what little common sense I possess which is ok if you're on your own and don’t mind occasionally riding along recently pedestrianised areas or quickly darting the wrong way up one way streets.

    Any modern GPS (and many of the older ones) are fully capable of running the regularly updated Open Street Maps. Don't fill the (really pretty reliable) SD card - that can be just left inside the device - with 'must have' music files; it's a GPS device, not an entertainment center.
