I'm thinking about ordering Geno 2.0, but I'm not sure if it has a British and Scandinavian category anymore or if those were only present in the older versions. Is it just Northwest Europe now? Thanks

Just Northwest Europe. I'd be curious to see your results though if you do it because Northwestern Europeans usually get other European elements.

That's really disappointing that they removed their Western Europe categories. Would you mind sharing whatever info you can about their categories, I saw you were assigned German and French as your top two categories in another thread... Are you able to see what the other categories similar to these are? Thank you

Here are the categories and map I received with Geno 2.0 NG from last summer:

15526

15527

I am curious exactly why they made the change. Seems like a step backwards.
