Can I Really Change the Battery on My Device?
Most anyone can, with the right tools and instructions, take apart a device, replace the battery, and put it back together. Whether you're replacing your Garmin Nuvi battery, Garmin Streetpilot battery, Amazon Kindle battery, Palm Tungsten battery, Magellan Roadmate battery, Magellan Maestro battery, TomTom battery, iRiver battery, or many others, the change can typically be accomplished. While it is possible that something could go wrong, we do have thousands of customers happy with their successful installation and newly revived PDA, GPS, or e-Reader. Not only can you change the battery, but often you can choose a battery with a substantially longer run time than your old battery.

Failed map updates have become more common for Garmin and TomTom GPS units.
With each new map update, the GPS unit may no longer have enough internal memory for a fresh new map update.

Excellent video showing 2012.40 failed map update occur.

Successful map update but this will be the last map update for this unit, with only 69MB of internal memory remaining.

Can I purchase a lifetime Europe and North America map for a Garmin GPS unit?
YES, This map update only can be used to update the preloaded maps that came installed on your Garmin unit.
 
nüMaps Lifetime™ North America and Europe

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=33381&ra=true

Note
I have an older nuvi 370 with lifetime Europe and North America maps,
this GPS unit software will not support map files larger than 2GB, this means
I can only update regions or a smaller areas of Europe maps into this older GPS unit.

Garmin nuvi recommendations for combo USA & Europe
Some choices depending on how you'd like to use your nuvi over time. First there are some nuvi models that come with both North America and Europe maps preinstalled. These models would include any model where the model number ends in 70 or 75. The only current models that would qualify are the 2475LT or 2370LT. In addition you could also find older models like the 770 or 775.

The other option is to purchase any of the current nuvi models that meet your needs for use in the US and then add Europe maps by purchasing them separately on an SD card or by DVD.

“Garmin Adventures” is a new feature that allows you to easily share trips and photos and lets you find Adventures by other Garmin users. You can download a track from your GPS to BaseCamp, add some photos, videos and annotations; upload the trip as an Adventure and then share it via the Garmin Adventures web site with friends and family. BaseCamp allows you to author Adventures, and use a playback feature so you can re-live your trip. In the near future, Garmin devices will add support for Adventures as well.
