The manufacturers will release the same device in numerous countries. The devices will always cover the country of sale.

The first thing to look for is the full title of the product that is being sold. For example;

TomTom GO 6000 6-inch Sat Nav with European Maps and Lifetime Map and Traffic Updates

This is useful as it tells us that the TomTom GO 6000 comes preloaded with European Maps. However in  North America they tend not to highlight the maps that are included in the title of the package. Take a look at this Garmin sat nav

Garmin nüvi 2757LM 7-Inch Portable Vehicle GPS with Lifetime Maps

This description gives nothing away as to the mapping software included. In this instance it is essential to delve a little deeper and either read the packaging or find a review of the product.

Yes, in all the devices we have seen on the market it certainly does. To be absolutely certain however check the back of the box. There is usually a list of the countries covered and a shaded map to highlight those countries.
