RNAV (GPS) is used in europe as well, at least the LIDO charts for my homebase (TXL) have them. Seems like the germans use that term instead of the more often used RNAV (GNSS).

On my type (737) the types of approved operation reads as follows:

The aircraft is eligible for the following types of operations:
Visual Flight (VFR)
Instrument Flight (IFR)
Basic Area Navigation (B-RNAV/RNAV 5)
Precision Area Navigation (P-RNAV/RNAV 1)
Reduced Vertical Separation Minima (RVSM)
GLS (GNSS/GBAS) CAT I
RNAV (GNSS) Approach (RNP APCH)
RNAV (RNP) Approach (RNP AR APCH)
Icing Conditions
Night Flight
Over Water Operation
Automatic Approach to CAT II and CAT III Weather Minima and Automatic Landing

Although it says RNAV (GNSS) there is no problem with RNAV (GPS) approaches in germany and we do fly them the same as we do the RNAV (GNSS) elsewhere.
