Please don't laugh

Just to be double double sure, there should be no problem using a GPS receiver (tomtom) that was purchased in the UK in the US ? eg I don't need a receiver specific to the country I am in ? Embarassed

No problem with the receiver, but you will need to buy the appropriate maps.

Indeed - the G in GPS gives it away - the issue is with the applications that you hide between your GPS receiver and your eyes....

If you're planning on using it just to get a Lat/Long or to follow on a USGS paper map, then you're more or less sorted (provided your GPS can output data that tallies with the map itself - ie. using the same datum)
