Welcome to, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

Garmin policies only allow a map to be registered to one device. If you want to load the europe maps on the new device, you will have to purchase a new SD card.

Or, you could consider using a free OSM map, which arent as reliable but they are free.

If you have any further questions, let me know.
