very disapointed, product is not workingNov 29, 2011
By Alexander B. Konick
I am trying to update my maps for the past month and a half. Every time I log on to the Garmin site i am getting the message "Garmin servers are currently experiencing difficulty. Please try again later." and I am getting this message is for the past 45 days... so in other words I have paid $100 for nothing... I am in the Balkans now where maps are very much needed to get around and I feel totally cheated by Garmin. I cannot even return the card since with small letters we, the cheated customers, are told that "Card is not returnable once product key is revealed". I think that all the other reviews for this product are bogus, cannot imagine that this works for anybody.
I am very disappointed and disoriented in Europe now because of this bad product.

Does not work with the 1490Dec 01, 2011
The description is unclear and incomplete. Does not include any maps only updates. Even after buying the maps seperately this does not work on the 1490. Wishing I had not bought a Garmin at this point....

This product is only an update for European Maps. You still need to buy the European Maps before you can use this product.Oct 05, 2013

This review is intended to save the next person from going thru the frustration I had to.
I have a Garmin Nuvi 2595 LMT. It already has the US map with lifetime updates. I wanted to install the map of Europe on the same device. I bought a micro SD flash memory card (8 GB) so there would be space on my GPS for the new maps. I tried to install this product onto my GPS. When you buy the product you get a code. You register the code on Garmin's web site. After you download Garmin's update utility you are told the maps will download. After that nothing happens.
Searching Garmin's website I got no answers. I finally call Garmin and got the answer I did not want to hear.
"This product does NOT include the maps of Europe. The maps of Europe are sold separately."
I bought the actual map of Europe from Garmin's website. The map costs just as much as the update license.
After all that the map of Europe was finally installed on my GPS.

Not sure I will ever get an Europe updateNov 22, 2013
Validated card on my garmin web site, does not show on my garmin express, garmin is having a problem with europe map as no updates to map I purchased in 2011. after I validated this card my garmin europe website stated the current europe was up to date. Do not expect an update as often as US map. Will see if it updates europe ever never land in the future.

Don't buy this productOct 05, 2013
By William P. Chu
You are taking a chance if you decide to purchase this map update, because it may or may not work for you. My experience has been terrible. I ordered the map update three weeks before my departure to Europe for my Garmin 275T which I bought three years ago. I did hestitate to buy this product after reading some of the reviews but one reviewer said they had no problem updating the device with the help of Garmin’s technical support (I now suspect it was a planted review). So I took the chance and now I really regret it. I started the software installation with the help of Garmin technical support. I spent over ten hours on the phone (including wait time) just to get over what they said were the first two problems of not enough memory on my MBA and needing an SD card for the 275T device. After fixing these, the maps were supposedly loaded but the maps could not unlock. I spent probably another ten or more hours on the phone (and an additional 3 hours for each download of a map update) with tech support and they couldn’t do anything to help me. The last couple times I called, I they were saying the USB cable might be bad, or my internet connection might be faulty. This time, I realized they didn’t have a clue what the problem was and were just naming any possible tech issue that had nothing to do with GARMIN and their faulty map update system and software. There is no chance of a refund once you scratch the card to get the product code, so it’s total loss for me because the update installation process also erased the former European map from my 275T. So before you buy this update, don’t buy it! Luckily I had time to update my phone with Google map before leaving for my trip.
