It's not fair to directly compare map or update pricing for different countries as I suspect the cost of obtaining the data varies. Most countries subsidize private cartography to varying degrees.
The cost of a product is also be dependent on the sales volume.
Obviously if the cost to produce is higher and/or the sales volume is less the price of the final product must be higher.
Don't like the price of Garmins products, then spend your money elsewhere.
