Any cheap/free routable Sydney maps

#11 Post by lookman » Mon Oct 15, 2007 9:35 pm

Hi there

Planning to take some vacation in Sydney in December. Chances are might need to do a bit of driving. Hoping there's some cheap/free Sydney routable maps available out there. Got some but not sure if they are routable.

Am using Dopod P100 with Garmin Que.

Cheers

If Dopod 100 runs WM5, then you can also look at Tomtom or iGo for it. Both maps are the latest from Sensis.

Using the Tomtom here in Australia without any problems. The POI is very extensive, as is the fixed speed camera warnings (they are everywhere).

The iGo is also good with an excellent and intuitive interface, but the navigation routine is not the smartest (it tend to pick main roads, and avoid the smaller lanes). For tourists, it is probably best to stick to the main roads anyway.

Sorry.... I am not familiar with what the E61i is. Is it a Garmin device? The map only works for Garmin GPSrs.
