Quick Overview

WHAT’S NEW IN 19.05
Our project to clean up the map and remove redundant points of interest still continues. We believe that it is important to not just add more and more points to our map, but to ensure that the existing ones are still relevant.

Botswana has had a 9% increase in road coverage with a focus around Gaborone and Lobatse.

East Africa has seen an increase of 4% in road coverage. Road surfaces in Uganda were revised and updated and new roads added around Kampala as well as new tracks in Queen Elizabeth NP.

In Mozambique and Malawi new roads and tracks were added which resulted in an increase of 8% in road coverage.

A new tar road between Maputo and Ponta do Ouro border post has also been added.

Zimbabwe and Zambia road classifications have been revised following field research. The road network increased by 6% as a result of ongoing research in the area. We are very proud of our Zambian map which has matured into one of the most comprehensive travel maps available.

T4A GPS Maps 19.05 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 345 data submissions for this version resulting in the addition of about 29 000km of road data. These data submissions not only contribute more roads and POIs to the map but also improve the quality of existing data by means of corrections.

SELF-DRIVE GUIDE BOOKS

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 self-drive 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.
