| Q: If a user buys the North American Garmin Mobile PC, can he later purchase another map from Garmin, for a different part of the world (Europe, Australia, etc)? Can Garmin Mobile PC be used with other Garmin map products? |
A: Yes, you can purchase maps for a different part of the world and the waypoints, routes, etc will be transferable between the various maps. However, depending on the maps you buy for the different part of the world, the user interface may be different. We do have a Garmin Mobile PC Europe version and the user interface will look exactly like the one you’re testing. If you buy “regular” City Navigator maps, the user interface will look like City Navigator, not Garmin Mobile PC.
Q: Thanks much for the explanation. I was hoping it would be possible to use for example Australian map data within Garmin Mobile PC, but I understand now that Garmin Mobile PC is for Europe and North America only.
| Q: I don't think there was an activation code included in the package - unless I overlooked it. Is it because the package included the Garmin USB GPS receiver? Is activation code only included with the software-only package? If that's the case, then the customers who buy the more expensive package, cannot use 3rd party GPS receivers. Am I right? |
A: Correct. If you buy the software only version, you can use a 3rd party GPS receiver. If you buy the bundle with the maps and GPS receiver, you can only use our receiver.

Did you install the update? It gives you the opportunity to try any GPS receiver and a trial button as well.
