As far as I know you only need to subscribe for the extras, you buy points and use them to download map tiles, or you do in the uk. When I was passing through France last year I had a sub to the French maps but never used them. Most of the time I use open cycle maps in France and Spain.

Re: Tar very much...

Most motoring shops have tar remover.

At least you can get tar off, few years ago in Spain I came across a road being widened, they were spreading a mix of cement and stone, then spraying water over it, my bike was covered in cement for ages.
