I'm currently using a Legend HCx for hill walking and road cycling in GB. I'd like to use the unit whilst cycle touring in Europe, both to provide a full log of rides in relation to the road system, and to show a moving map whilst riding so I can see upcoming turns and other road junctions. Routing options would be an added bonus but I still enjoy using a paper map occasionally!

Is Navigator Europe the best option?

Is it possible to upload the cheaper pre-loaded sd card to my pc so I can review my travels on a big screen, or will I have to buy the more expensive DVD and download appropriate selections to my Legend?

Are there alternative mapping products which would provide the detail required?

Thanks for any advice on this.

I recently used my Legend HCx with City Navigator Europe NT for cycling and walking in Northern Spain and found the mapping to be excellent - it seemed to show every minor road and was quite a help at times when the available paper maps seemed inadequqate.

With regard to your question re. the pre-loaded SD card, I was advised on this forum that only the dvd version is downloadable to a pc
I have the micro SD version Sad
