    Default Garmin gps

    Excuse my ignorance but I have just bought a Garmin nuvi 42lm with an SD Slot. I believe it has an 8gb max size.
    Question is: Why do I need extra memory and what do I do with the extra space anyway? Do I just buy a blank microSD card or do I have to get one with something on it, like maps for instance?
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    You don't have to have a microsd card. The unit most likely came with maps that are on the unit. They have enough space for most people. Have a look here:
