This sat nav does actually say street names! Argos Answer is incorrect. I have just purchased one this afternoon and drove home with it on to try it out and said road names!

I can confirm in order for the Garmin Navi 30 3 5in UK and ROI Sat Nav to be used in an eu country you would need to go to the Garmin website and pay for additional maps. This will then enable you to use the sat nav over seas.

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that the Garmin Nuvi 30 3 5in UK and ROI Sat Nav can be used in a Heavy Goods Vehicle with no restrictions.
However, this unit does not come with such information as maximum weight/height for bridges etc. So while this would work as a basic unit, you may want to investigate GPS units that are specifically designed for HGVs.

Question
Do you have to Register device on the Garmin connect site before can use?
Husband on his way to purchase and needs to use immediately as current Sat Nav failed and he is making deliveries over next 2 days. Has no PC or internet access so would need to be able to set up and use immediately without having to register on internet site - confirm this is possible.
