Garmin etrex GPS unit settings in Italy

Anyone know what the unit settings are for hand held GPS's in Italy? Does it come under German grid or is it something more obscure?

All help appreciated, leaving tomorrow.(7 P's spring to mind). :roll:
I am struggling to find a definitive answer but I would recommend setting the Position Format as UTM/UPS, and the Map Datum as European Datum 1950 (European 1950 or ED50). However I would have a good look at the maps when you get there to check that they have not adopted WGS84 as the datum which I know Germany was doing in the mid to late 1990s.

You could try www8.garmin.com/support/faqs/MapDatumList.pdf ; however my browser crashes everytime I try to do so.

Good luck.
