  • Americas - North, South and Central America (includes Alaska & Hawaii)
  • Atlantic International - Europe, Africa
  • Pacific International - Eastern Europe, Asia, Middle East and the South Pacific (includes Hawaii).

Any Garmin Aviation GPS that has XM Weather is only available in the Americas version. i.e. the Garmin 795 is available in all three geographical configurations. The Garmin 796 is only for Americas. The Garmin aera 510 and aera 560 are only available for the Americas.
