Hema maps are very good, but you may also want to consider the Magellan Crossover GPS.

Comes with the Discover Aus topo mapping which has all roads, 4WD tracks etc and 5m contours over the whole country.

Had left valuables in the car and you guessed it, broken window on my return. You can replace physical items, but about 1 years worth of video of my daughter growing up is no...

Hey Whats That? - Panoramas

Click the "Visibility cloak" button to see what is visible. Turn on the Profile to see a cross section between 2 points. This link will take you to the top of...

Re: PPC sux

Is there any decent freeware out there for pocket PC. As palm owner I was used to lots of lovely apps. Tidetool, planetarium, wordz, games etc. Searching for apps suitable for PPC is a bit like looking for water at Andamooka. Where are the gems? A couple you may find usefull :- ctide http://airtaxi...
