Tracks4Africa (ver.18.10)

In stock


Quick Overview

We are busy finalising our new paper map of South Africa and this project prompted a lot of research into basic services in smaller towns of South Africa. There were a lot of new points of interest added as a result.

Our project to clean up the map and remove redundant points of interest still continues. Most of this work was already included in version 18.05 but you should notice more of this in the latest version. The previous version saw a decline in the number of POIs as a result of this project, but for version 18.10 the number grew by 1.5%.

Our Zimbabwe project still continued well into 2018 and had a very big effect on the road coverage. You may recall that we started to look for missing secondary and minor roads in Zimbabwe and that road coverage increased by 6% in the previous version. The project, now completed, contributed a whopping 27% more in the latest release. This project added more than 30 000km of new roads in Zimbabwe. T4A GPS Maps 18.10 comes preloaded on a micro SD card with standard adapter, ready for Plug & Navigate. This SD card can be used on most map capable Garmin handheld units and has been tested with latest Drive units as well.

We processed 305 data submissions for this version resulting in the addition of about 31 000km of road data.

This Atlas covers ten countries in Southern Africa and is specifically aimed at self-drive travellers: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The Atlas features 101 map pages with the same trusted map detail for which Tracks4Africa is renowned.

We have used different map scales in this Atlas: South Africa, Lesotho and part of Swaziland are on a 1:500 000 scale; the remainder of Swaziland, Mozambique, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia are on a 1:1000 000 scale; most of Angola is on a 1:4000 000 scale.

To complement the Atlas we also offer a canvas cover with enough extra space to hold a few maps.

The Paper Maps are designed to be used in conjunction with the T4A GPS Maps. They are the largest available maps of Botswana, Mozambique & Malawi, Namibia, and South Africa on a 1:1 000 000 scale, offering the perfect trip planning tool for your next holiday.

These maps are probably the first comprehensive country maps in the world offering travel time information for the entire road network be it on tar, gravel or sand.

What is new in Edition 2

The format has changed from A5 to A4, the content has been fully revised, and a few extras have been added including suggested itineraries and a new atlas section featuring detailed maps of each country.

These books are the combined experiences of a whole community of travellers and are specifically aimed at selfdrive travellers. If you are a self-drive tourist, there are five things that you need to know when you are on the road: where to sleep, where to get fuel, what to see and do, where to buy supplies, and where to go in case of an emergency.

Content covered in these books includes: general information about each country; safety and precaution; trip planning; navigation; preparing your vehicle for overland travel; communication; border post red tape; veterinary fences; health; pitfalls to renting a 4x4 with camping equipment; things you should not go without.
