I have recently bought a Becker here in Switzerland. Brilliant for Europe, however I will soon be back in South Africa for a visit and would also like to purchase SA maps. NAVTEQ's current position is that they do not have any maps available for my model. Has anyone had any success with using maps from an alternative source?
I have the same question as Pierre. My father-in-law brought a Becker GPS back from Germany, which uses Navteq maps.
Where can we find the South Africa Map the press releases all over the internet and on this site are talking about?
