Driving in the Dordogne Department and GPS

Jump to last reply

I have a Garmin GPS unit that I’ll be using when driving through the Dordogne. The last time I drove in Europe was in 2012 when I visited Slovenia. At that time I had purchased a Europe SD card to use with my unit which I still own. I’m wondering if it is worthwhile to purchase a more recent and updated card. For those who are highly familiar with the area, has there been enough/any changes in the roads to justify it or is my old one still good enough?

I’ll be flying into Bordeaux from where I’ll be renting and returning the car to. It is a two week trip and I’ll be spending nights in Bordeaux (3), Perigeaux (3), Sarlat (4), Figeac(2) and Cahors (1) with day trips in the surrounding areas.

If I were driving in many larger cities I can see the need but I can’t imagine the roads in rural France see many changes (but maybe I’m wrong).
Thanks in advance!
