can I get this product with an Australia data set on microSD?

Yes you can, if you buy the bundle pack from the UK is most likely comes with the European ones. I didn't get the bundle then just got the maps from the Garmin site. Or you can use openstreetmaps which are entirely free and work fine. There are some great Australian sites that have downloads for you to put on your Garmin, I use openstreetmaps with the cycle maps, the good part is it shows up all mapped cycle paths. In WA it even has all mountain bike trails that I regularly use as well as all road paths

I am a client in the U.S. and looking to PLEASE get SOLID confirmation that the 800 comes with GPS Maps of the Eastern U.S. and NOT EMEA?

I ordered one from another company in Europe and had to return it. It came with Mapping Software of EMEA and not the U.S. where I live. I live in Miami, Florida and GARMIN Said it would cost me another USD $90.00 to get my Maps.........Can you please confirm? Thanks!
My advice would be not to get the bundle and then purchase your maps when you get the device. Most bundle purchase come with the European maps. Ensure you check the description when reviewing, there may be an option to select which maps you can get. There are always free maps you can download and use, I currently use openstreetmap which is just a download onto the Garmin 800. Works fine

Power Adapter - Hello, in the description you say this product only come with a UK power adaptor - is it possible to buy a European adaptor

you don't actually need the power adapter, I charge/download mine with the usb lead.

Garmin 800 Performance & Navigation package. If i wanted to attach the unit to another bike what additional parts would i require?

I use mine on two bikes, the only extra purchase I needed was an extra Ant+ compatable Speed/cadence sensor. It does not seem to allow a separate speed and cadence sensor to pick up. But the combined one I have on my bike is fine

Can this GPS be used off the bike?

As a very keen cyclist and regular fell walker, I was wondering if the GPS could be used when walking? Has anyone had any experience of using the GPS for anything else other than cycling? It would make it a more cost-effective purchase if it had a dual use:-)

Thanks, Michael.
you can even get a stride sensor for this device

Does this come with maps?

Does this bundle come preloaded with maps ?
I am looking for a gps system for a london to paris bike ride and would like to download the route onto a gps system. I don't want to spend this amount of money on a system and then have to buy the maps to go with it (like a SatMap)

are the maps FULL UK AND EU ?
this bundle dosn't come with maps but there is a bundle you can get that has the eu maps on them
