    Will a Garmin 800 accept microSD cards with European maps?

    Just started using the route feature on my Garmin Edge 500. First trip, it worked fine. Yesterday, it froze up and I lost data until I stopped and was able to reset. How I did so, don't know. All the buttons did not do anything.

    I think I'd like the routing and maps of the 800. Will it accept a microSD card with European maps, for those times when I'm cycling in Europe?

    Yes, they do a City Navigator Europe microSD. It doesn't just cover cities, but the mapping is more detailed there.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    There's also the option of using third-party maps (like OpenMaps). I just did this with my Garmin 800. It works great and saved me at least $60.

    OSM are available for much of the world, certainly Europe. I put North American OSM on my 800 and they work very well. 4 Gbyte for the entire US.
