Garmin Edge 520 Questions and Answers

Question: I am looking for a UK cycling map for my Garmin Edge 520 - I am riding from Lands End to John o' Groats and would like a map! Please can you suggest if such a map exists or can be created? I need roads but not much other details. Thanks.

Answer: For street-level road mapping for your Garmin Edge 520 I would recommend Garmin City Navigator NT Maps of UK and Ireland as a download from Garmin. While we sell the UK/Ireland map on SD/microSD Card, the Garmin Edge 520 DOES NOT have a SD/microSD Card slot, therefore a download is your only option.
