NAVTEQ has announced a full coverage map for South Africa. Included in the data set is over 450,000 km of roads, enabling customers using the NAVTEQ digital map for South Africa to create navigation solutions for the entire country. The full coverage product, which reaches approximately one hundred percent of South Africa's population, includes over 25,000 points of interest including high value listings such as approximately 3,900 restaurants and 2,100 hotels. Customers integrating the map into consumer and business applications will have access to data representing over 4,955 named places in the country.

"Because of the strong growth in digital map based applications, NAVTEQ has already significantly enhanced its coverage of South Africa. Moving forward, we plan on continuing to expand our coverage in South Africa to meet the evolving needs of the growing user base of digital maps," stated George Filley, Vice President of Product Management, for NAVTEQ. NAVTEQ has also made a commitment to provide expanded coverage to support navigation needs during FIFA World Cup to be held in South Africa in 2010, enabling navigation between venues and providing detailed destination information.

My Jeep Cherokee has an in-car satnav system which uses NAVTEQ maps but they are hopelessly outdated. Also I travel frequently to Namibia but it is not covered. I cannot get updates from Chrysler; How can I update this system? Or is it possible to load T4A onto it? Without being able to update I may as well not have the system at all.

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?

Have anyone had any success in obtaining maps of South Africa for a Becker Traffic Assist Pro using Navteq software. The GPS was bought in Austria.

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?
