Australia

 

Greeting from "Down Under". Am in the process of returning to Los Angeles in a few hours and wish I had a GPS to help when we were wondering around Sydney.

Australian POIs

After using my GPS for a year, I would definitiely take it on any trip - especially overseas! The cost of a pre-loaded map would be well spent, and I'm sure they have forums like this one in most European and South Pacific countries. Planning such a trip is a lot of fun and you would be able to set the "must see" sites up in the GPS.

Australia is a BIG country (continent), so I hope you were able to spend several weeks there. Driving on the other side of the road can be a bit hairy... especially if you are driving a car with manual transmission!

down under next year

I will be going down under in March 2009 and would like to take my Garmin preloaded with POI's. If anyone has info on Australia and New Zealand it would be appreciated.

Australia (Down Under)

Here is a site that you will find some people who will be more than willing to help you out :
http://www.gpsaustralia.net/
Also try looking at maps that are called Shonky(which they are not ) they can be loaded on to Garmin units and they are free and down here we think you guys drive on the wrong side of the road razz

Walk abouts in the BIG down under!

Your comments drew a big smile from me! I found out how big the Continent was when I walked around NSW and Queensland. What a great place and even better mates! I'll shout anyone a beer when I'm there. I never will forget the Mountain View Hotel when I was visiting Townsend and the Gilleys

Thanks, AU for showing me a great time.
