Hi

You will need to buy a Western Europe map, a bit of an overkill if just going to Spain... You will need to download a copy of Garmin Express into your computer and you will need a USB lead to connect the Garmin to the PC:

Have you considered a smart phone, buying a spanish data simm and using google maps? It will be a lot cheaper... Its what we did last trip to Europe, paid 20 Euro for 5Gb of data and we had mobile data for FB etc and even navigating the streets on foot...
