    Hello, and welcome from another "old newbie". I'm a couple of yrs behind you. I'd love to meet you in or on the way to Cyprus, but I have a bit farther ways to go.

    On the SatNav, what are you asking? Do you want a 350 to fill the bracket, or something else? The 350 is pretty long in the tooth and newer model setups are available from many companies. I do have a 550 + cradle that I'm taking off my old bike that I could probably be talked out of cheap. It has North America maps so would need to be reloaded with EU/UK.

    My go-to business in the US is gpscity: https://www.gpscity.com/

    but there are probably better places to shop in the UK for your market.

    I see UK/IR/EU map chip is ~$66 + shipping US: https://www.gpscity.com/garmin-microsd-city-navigator-europe-nt-uk-and-ireland-card

    Here is their motorcycle gps assortment, with a refurbished 396 the cheapest:

    Used units are all over the place including ebay. You might also want to contact the IBA community in the UK as those guys use gps regularly in their travels and know the best place to get them. Here is the link to the UK forum:

    I hope this helps!
