What models are you considering. Do you want Uk only maps or all Europe?
What other facilities do you want?

Usually Regional will be limited by country - as the above poster says... it could just be UK and Ireland maps, whereas the other option could be Europe included.

They uses to show it clearly on the entry level models by having a '5' or '0' as the second digit...

I.e. the 205 is UK and Ireland whereas the 255 is Europe

And

Other than that, they're identical.
