I'm on the edge of pulling the trigger on a Rider 550. Except I'm confused about what maps are supported/free. I'm also confused about traffic support.
At some point in my research a see "free worldwide maps". And then I encounter the words "downloading" and "purchasing". Reading further, an SD can be uses for routes and tracks or for maps, but not both due to formatting constraints. Which seems to imply there can be maps, or there can be routing and "bread crumb" tracks but not both.
I need support for at least the entire US. Adding Canada and Mexico would be nice. I also need support for Europe and the UK. How is that managed and usable in the 550?
Traffic and POI support is not a must, but if it's part of the 550 experience, why not use it. Except that I found references to a subscription and, possibly, a three month trial. Again, I'm confused.
Guidance on any or all of the above is welcome.
