Navigon GPS maps for US/Canada fix

edited November -1 in NAVIGON Forum
I purchased a navigon 7310 off of eBay and realized it was a European version that works (which isn’t a problem since I may end up in Europe within a few years). The issue is that I would like to use it at home in the US. I have acquired some US maps (after my failed attempts to transfer the US maps from my navigon 7100 to the 7310).

I duplicated the European map card to another 4 GB card designated for the US maps. I kept the files from the European card and exchanged the maps and .nfs files from the downloaded US maps, I actually got the maps to work, however there is something missing since I cannot input street names into the gps to get the directions to get to a location. If I go to the map directly I can zoom into a location and press take me there and it appears that it wants to take me there (awaiting gps signal).

Is there a fix or something I am missing that needs to be downloaded.
Secondary question - for all the 3d features and other bells and whistles that come with the navigon 7310, should I purchase/acquire the navigon 8300 series US maps to accommodate the 7310?
