Thumbs up City Navigator Europe V8

Hi - first let me apologies for not being a K1200LT rider any more BUT I know you lot are very knowledgeable re: Garmin.

I still run my SP111 and have just updated to the 6.10 software and have now installed the City Navigator Europe V8 - seems to be available only on DVD now.

Question - how do they manage to get more detail into a map but require less space for it? With V7 I could not get the whole of the British Isles onto my 256 chip BUT now I can with room to spare! And yes there is more detail on the new V8 maps.

BTW British Isles includes the whole of Ireland plus the Channel Isles.

Also has anyone tried the 500 chip in SP111? I see you have discussed it but there does not seem to be a firm answer.

Regards to all
