Help! Can a Sat Nav purchased in Australia work in Europe?

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travellers
We are planning to drive in Spain and Italy, and thought we might like to buy a sat nav device in Australia rather than hire one this time round. It makes sense as it would be useful for future trips and for use at home.

However it is not as straight forward as I thought it would be. Ive been to the shops, trawled online forums, and Tomtom, Garmin websites...and getting thoroughly muddled.

Is a sat nav universally compatible in all cars regardless of whether it is in Australia or Europe? Do i need an international adapter to charge it? I was told i need to buy an SD card to download europe maps bought online first before sticking it into the device to use the maps...another alternative would be to get a friend in the UK to buy it for us or buy one in Paris which is our first stop in Europe?

Any assistance and clarity on this is much appreciated.
Thanks!
