there's not a lot of traffic in this forum. i don't know the answer to your question, but you could try in the main ED forum. i imagine most people nowadays have nav in their new cars, so use of separate standalone units probably isn't as common. i think there is a sticky in the main forum about garmin, but i've never looked at it...

Do you mean Alpine route as in Deutsche Alpenstrasse?

3 yrs ago I was driving on that road with my Garmin GPS with City Navigator NT (a micro SD card) and yes that area was covered.

Yes the Garmin Nuvi European Maps have all of Germany. Best thing to do is to hook the Nuvi up to your PC. Then use Mapsource to plot the route. The Garmin GPS is vastly superior to the BMW nav system. Much more accurate and easier to use.

Garmin has upgraded from Mapsource to BaseCamp. Same concept, but more detail and capabilities for mapping routes.
