Hi I own a TT 520 and I am going to Florida in 3 weeks (Disneyland etc, nothing too adventurous). Thought it would be useful to buy Sat Nav maps and cheapest way seems to be to download (to buy on an SD card costs around 75)

Options to download (from TT website)

USA v8.45 - 54.95
North America 2GB v 8.45 - 64.95

Firstly, can anybody tell me the difference / will I be OK with the cheapest ?

Do I merely download to an SD card and swap the SD card with my current UK SD card ?

Does this have any implications for my stored UK POI (normal POI, PGPSW speed cams etc) or are these saved on the internal memory, so when I am back in the UK I swap the cards back over and I am back to where I was ?)

Is there anyway I can check whether the download has been successful and the maps will work, or do I have to get to the States and swap over then, hoping that they will work ?

Many thanks for any help you can give I am a bit nervous that I will create future problems for myself and /or I will get to the USA and find nothing works.

I would guess the difference is Canada (and, maybe, Mexico) - so the cheaper will do. With my TT software (not a 520, though) you can switch to the map and browse it without a GPS fix.
