Garmin Edge 820 and Edge Explore 820 Maps


Discover which maps the Edge 820 and Edge Explore 820 cycle computer includes as standard and which ones you can buy extra, and why you might like to buy them.

As standard the Edge 820 and Edge Explore 820 is preloaded with Garmin's Cycle map of Europe. This map includes on-road or off-road navigation and points of interest right across 34 Eastern and Western European countries.

The included 34 countries are: Andora, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, (Republic of) Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, (Principality of) Monaco, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Vatican City.

You can install richer mapping detail in the UK and Ireland by purchasing GB Discoverer or EIRE Discoverer maps. The Garmin Discoverer map series uses Ordnance Survey (Great Britain) and Ordnance Survey Ireland (Republic of Ireland) map data which is then displayed on the colour touchscreen of the Edge 820 and Edge Explore 820 right on the handlebar of your bike or wherever you choose to mount and use it.

Similarly, TOPO French maps which use Données IGN map data for either France are also available.

All of the maps below come supplied on microSD card within a SD card adaptor, meaning not only will they work with the Edge 820 and Edge Explore 820, but also other Garmin compatible devices that take a different size SD card too. So for example you could purchase a City Navigator NT street-level map, use it with your Edge 820 and Edge Explore 820 cycle computer and then use the same map in your Garmin nuvi car sat nav too.

Please note: When using any of the map SD/microSD Cards below they needs to remain in your Garmin Edge 820 device at all times so the map can be read. The map card cannot be copied to either your Edge 820 or Edge Explore 820, PC or external hard drive. However the map SD card can be used in multiple compatible Garmin devices, but only one at a time. For further help with installing and loading Garmin SD/microSD Cards click here.
