I think Garmin has a great solution for you and not only because it has a large screen but also for the fact that you can connect a reversing camera to it. It's the Garmin nuvi 5000. Keep in mind though that the unit does not have a internal battery, which means that it has to be connected to a 12 volt power source in order to operate. You cannot walk around with it and navigate on foot, but I think it would be perfect for you. Check it out on the Web.

Can we download European maps onto our Garmin 200W for travelling with motorhome

If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.

You would probably be better to buy a cheap satnav of Europe. You can get them from
if you want to buy on line or Halfords shops if you prefer to deal with someone face to face. Some of them cost less than €100 and would be near the same price as buying the map of Europe.

Or if you want a satnav that covers both the USA and Europe and will work in both the Garmin nuvi 1370 or the 2370 would do the job but costs a bit more.

I hope this answers your question.

Can i input the width, &length height, of motorhome into my garmin sat nav.

No, you can't. The GPS signal co-ordinates from its exact location vs the US govt satellites. It doesn't matter what size your motorhome is.

Unfortunately - the only choices for "usage mode" in the nuvi 760 are Automobile, Pedestrian and Bicycle. Check to see if it is not already set to Automobile by touching:


and select Automobile.

Can 2008 saturn astra be dinghy towed(4 wheels down)behind an RV?

You can do it if you really wanted to. You'll need to make sure the steering wheel is secured and that the wheels are perfectly straight or you will wreck the front tires. You will be adding unneeded mileage onto the the car by having the front wheels turning. would be better and less costly overall to get trailer that you can put the front end up on.

I just got map updates from garmin and they are not accurate, they were better before I got them, I am in the Atlanta area & it is given me the closest locations are in tenn. for food, fuel etc.

I think contacting Garmin direct would be better than asking here. It sounds like a typical garmin booboo. The maps are written by a 3rd party company and contracted to Garmin for their formatting to their own brands. It is possible that some one screwed up the POI files for this release.
