Default 8820 query

Please Login to Remove!

I am about to order an 8820 and wondered if I also need to send for a connecting lead to my pc so that I can download gps maps - unless
someone tells me that I can download via the wi fi -----
Thanks very much

there are no maps applications that you can download maps for.
All the maps applications (bar a couple possibly) use data to get the maps.

there a few if any map applications that have installable maps to the memory.
they use data to download the maps.
