Hi, You will have to buy a version of European maps. After you download them into your Garmin it will work just like in the US. Here is a link I found for you. It looks like you need to buy all of Europe but there may be a way to just buy individual countries. Best wishes on your trip.

I wanted to add maps to my 250W. I found the maps I wanted on a Torrent. However, many searches around various forums never revealed how to install these. Found the following through reading and experimentation.
1. Downoaded map image file GMAPSUPP.IMG. Download also gave me "Use code XXX when generating unlock code for maps" 2. Downloaded Garmin Unlock Generator 1.3 by JetMouse 3. Looked on my GPS to find the UnitID 4. Entered the UnitID into Garmin Unlock Generator. Ignore the GM XT device unlock code and the top Generate button. 5. Selected Map Product as Custom and entered the code given for the downloaded image file. 6. Hit the bottom create button to generate a 25 digit code. 7. Download Img2Gps and run 8. Click Load Folder to load the image file. Select the tick next to it. 9. Check the Use Unlock Key option and paste the 25 digit code in. 10. Load a blank SD card into your Garmin 11. Connect the Garmin to your PC using a USB cable. You should see two dirves in windows: one is the Garmin and the other is the "Removable Disk" SD card. 12. Create a folder called "Garmin" on the SD card 13. Select Folder/Card in Img2GPS 14. Click "Copy Maps". Select the folder /Garmin on the SD card. You may need to click copy again. 15. Upload will take a while. 16. You should now see a file GMAPSUPP.IMG on the SD card in the /Garmin directory. 17. Create a new text file called GMAPSUPP.UNL in the same directory (make sure it does not have a hidden .txt extension). 18 copy the 25 digit unlock key into this file. 19. Close the file. 20. Disconnect the Garmin. 21. On Startup it should load your original maps and the new ones.
The GPSMap 295 can only have one region at a time - North America, South America, etc. You can purchase an updated database specifically for Africa and the Middle East - it's about $50 USD. It will erase whatever region you have in there right now (you can't store Africa/MidEast with America, for instance. It's one at a time.)
The Garmin Website:
lets you download new Jeppesen databases to your GPSMap 295. Select your model, then select which region you want.
***Before you buy:*** You'll have to have the data cable to connect it to your computer. Without that, you will have no way to update the maps and database.
If you do have the data cable, the process is very easy - just follow the instructions carefully, and make sure all the numbers they ask you for are correct. I just did mine today. Good luck!
Contact Garmins Tech support hot Line they will walk you through the process and if they can't fix it over the phone they will send you a disk that will completely fix the "NO detailed maps found that support routing" I have contacted them with the same problem and the disc was free of charge.
