Garmin 660WT FM - Use in France re Speed Cameras

I have just bought a 660WT FM Garmin sat nav and intend to go to France shortly. However, French driving regulations make it ellegal to use a radar detector device (fine up to €1500).

Can anyone tell me if this model comes with European radar detection installed as standard? If so it would mean it cannot be legally used on French roads.

    I've resolved this question. Radar detection is sat navs is not illegal as they only detect those which are already detailed on maps.

    Equipment with the sole purpose of detecting (all) radar trap[s is what is referred to according to the French Embassy in London. This info was obtained from the AA website.

This is a gps navigation device. there is no radar detection with it. the only thing it has is an FM traffic service to avoid delays, which may not be available in france. in short, this device is not illeagel nor does it have any type or radar detection or even speed camera detection.

How do I convert my sat nav from europe to usa


Some Sat Navs can't convert, If it's bought & set to UK & Ireland maps, then you are stuck. 2nd thing , even if you can use Europe Maps on your Sat Nav, you still will be unable, to load USA maps.
Sat Nav not compatable, You will have to buy a NEW ONE.

Sat Nav software for Mazda 6 is available only from Navteq and SDAL. Unfortunately speed cameras are only available by Garmin (not supported by Mazda) and that is for UK only.

I need help installing a map onto a gramin sat nav


No. They are refering to maps sent from the computer to the Garmin device. Maps are not transferred off the SD card to the unit. Simply insert the SD card into the device and the Garmin will read the maps from the card.
to double check follow these steps
  1. Power on the unit with the card in
  2. Press Tools
  3. Press Settings
  4. Press Map
  5. Press Info (or map info)
This page should list out both your UK and Ireland maps(old as dirt) and your new Benelux and France maps as well
