Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
You can buy the map you need here:

I suggest the SD card option as they are a lot more reliable than downloads.

Wow, $100 US non refundable, will it work for sure on my old nuvi 40
Would not be cheaper to just buy another GPS in Europe with loaded European maps !
Should I go to the Canadian site instead to pay in Canadian $

It will work on your model and it should be the same price CAD the GPS only comes with maps for the original area you purchase it in. So if you prefer you can just buy a new device in the UK but it may not have France on it. Usually the UK devices only come with UK and Ireland. Call this number to complain about the pricing: 1(###) ###-####I can't do anything about that and just the UK map is usually 69.99.
