    Does anyone know of a good map of eu that works on the pc and will work with a ext GPS unit, plus would be helpful if i can upload GPX files to the map software as well

    Have got a copy of Autoroute 2013 but its well out of date already

    Try garmins mapsource or basecamp software and free OSM maps from here

    http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/

    or just use Google Earth, it can load gpx files and save them

    I use this program on my laptop with external usb satellite receiver as a backup to my Garmin, it has been very useful on the occasions I have used it.

    Navigator works quite well, it also has a android app version for smart phone so not just windows based.

    ok you need to either select a predefined country from the drops downs and then click on the link above the map, this takes to to another page with a series of downloads, select this one osm_generic_windows.exe and download it once finished double click on the file to run it. It'll then install into the garmin software.

    You can also select map tiles on the map and then send you email to get custom mapsets, once the map is built you'll get and email with a link to a page with the downloads like above

    You can use a random generated free key.
    There is a tab for that under or near where it asks for the key.
