Once the Garmin viago app is installed, users will get access to the latest Here maps for Europe, Latin America, Middle East, North America, and Russia. To navigate offline with Maps to Go, users can add the following regions to the app: Australia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, New Zealand, North America, and Russia. Notably, the app seems to be available only in these regions, and since Google Play India showed us the Garmin viago map was incompatible with all our devices, it appears the app is currently not operational in India.Garmin is known for manufacturing GPS navigation devices, and unveiled its first Garmin StreetPilot in 1998 at Consumer Electronics Show. It had a black and white screen and no voice. Later in 2002, it added a colour display and voice navigation to the device.
