    A little off topic, but Garmin released a new firmware 2.3. I wouldn't hold my breath, but hopefully it resolves some of the issues people have been seeing with firmware 2.2.

    It looks like the Garmin Edge 1000 comes pre-loaded with maps, is that correct?

    With the 810 you have to buy the maps or go with one of the free map options?
