We purchased ours in the states, and was told that this would work in Europe, all we had to do was get an SD card.....we purchased this specifically for our 3 yr stay with the military......and we cannot seem to get any answers on how to get the European maps installed. Specifically, Germany. HELP!

If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.
The AVIC-F700BT was not designed to play DVD's. If you wanted that capability you should have purchased the AVIC-F900BT. You can play video on the AVIC-F700BT from your iPod or USB Drive or SD Card or even from one of the AV inputs (mini jack on front or RCA's on the rear of the unit).
you can view all the history from locations u've been, the roads you travelled down and also use Google maps to locate and plan new routes then upload back to the USB / SD Card and load them into the sat nav!
You can even manage the settings throught this application as well.
The new maps will be unlocked to your GPS using the code Garmin supplied you.
You will have to add these maps to a second SD card if your present card is full, or else purchase a larger card. Since all the Mapsource NT 2008 Europe maps are 1,395MB in size, you'll need to purchase at least a 2GB SD card.
