Garmin Edge 1030 Questions and Answers

Question: I have an Garmin Edge 1030. Used Garmin maps for Ireland this year. It appears Garmin does not have Japan maps for my USA Garmin. I may have to go directly to OSM and download. Is that my only option?

Answer: We not do sell maps for Japan for any Garmin sat nav or GPS device. As far as we are aware Garmin do not produce any cycle and street-level road mapping for Japan.

Question: I have an Edge 1030 I bought in Australia and it has maps installed, but I'm now in the UK can I install uk Maps onto it and if so how?

Answer: For UK maps I would recommend the Garmin Europe Cycle Map on microSD/SD card.

It is fully compatible with your Australian Garmin Edge 1030. You can read Garmin map installation tips.
