Very good experiece with this map but would be greater with more details of curiosity. Can not give it a 5, but 4 for hard work.

This worked perfectly throughout our vacation to namibia and botswana, and a shorter go to to joburg in march 2012. Using note of other reviewers, just to make certain it worked i loaded the addresses and favourites into my system just before i went. No challenge listed here, the town street maps were obvious. For the duration of the go to it labored superbly. Some of the routings supplied have been fascinating in the remote areas. For illustration i was routed from sesriem to walvis bay(350km) by way of windhoek (800km). Even so we did have a ‘hard copy’ map, and when we were on the shorter c19 desert road, the sat nav ‘re-calculated’ and was devoted following that. Intellect you, with so couple of streets in namibia, in the caprivi strip, and botswana, maybe we failed to need to have a sat-nav. We discovered the devise handy for telling us ‘where we are’, how much to go, and in unique the altitude.

Was pretty practical, we debated likely on holiday break with no it but we actually would have been extremely dropped without it. Incredibly useful for obtaining in which the nearest petrol stations are on lengthy journeys and for bringing you correct to your doorway when seeking to find your lodging along the way.

Accurately taken to desired destination even in massive metropolitan areas.

Making use of it day-to-day – instructions are clear. Applying it day-to-day – directions are apparent, up to day and correct. What else would i expect from garmin.

Garmin City Navigator® Southern Africa NT and MicroSD/SD Card : Just plug the card in and enjoy detailed maps immediately. It is so nice to receive a product which does exactly what it says on the tin. Just plug in the sd or microsd card (in my case) into your garmin device and reboot it. You will immediately have full access to detailed south africa maps and directions. I have no idea what happened to the other two reviewers, but do not let them put you off a straight forward and excellent product.

However i did buy it 2 days prior to my trip to south africa – it was brilliant. Easy to load and when i arrived in. I read all the reviews before purchasing and to be honest was almost put off. However i did buy it 2 days prior to my trip to south africa – it was brilliant. Easy to load and when i arrived in sa just switched it on, found me immediately and off we went. We took one or two wrong turns and had a couple of diversions due to roadworks – it recalculated my new route in seconds.

Not totally straightforward installation, but better than a download, and did install ok. . I bought the south africa maps on micro sd card so as to avoid the uncertainty of a download. I am very happy i did i this way (i have previously downloaded north america maps and ran into difficulty but was helped out by garmin online support by email). This time i hoped to be able to just take out my current micro sd and put in the new one. It was not quite that simple but ok in the end. (i have a nuvi 2455) at first puttng in the card and switching on did not work. A quick google led me to expect that a device reset was needed. . But 1) i dld basecamp free from garmin site for my pc 2) backed up my current data using its commands dicovered on a googled garmin video 3) removed current sd 4) inserted new sa map sd 5) turned on device (no reset needed) 6) sa maps were there. :-)i do recommend the basecamp free prog. I feel the garmin maps are pricey but having your own device while abroad is very reassuring and the local shopping and tourist data can come in handy if your phone can’t get on the net.

Garmin city navigator® southern africa. Worked perfectly on recent trip to south africa. So much easier than reading maps.

Was very helpful, we debated going on holiday without it but we literally would have been very lost without it. Very useful for finding where the nearest petrol stations are on long journeys and for bringing you right to your door when trying to find your accommodation along the way.

Generally very good, with a couple of mapping issues. I bought a refurbished garmin nuvi last year, with europe and us mapping included, to replace an ageing navman, which seemed very hard to find maps for. I saved the cost of the garmin in a four week car hire in late 2012 in the usa, using it rather than hiring a unit with the car. My plan was always to buy the south africa maps on micro-sd, for seven weeks car hire early in 2013 as, again, the maps paid for themselves several times over. Running the maps on sd is easy – plug it in and tick the new map on the info screen. Generally the directions are very good – up to european/us standards. Couple of issues however arose, on the road. The maps on sd are slower than those on disk, so if you go wrong at a junction, then correct yourself with a quick u-turn, the unit can get very confused until it (slowly) sorts out your position. This is not apparent, if say, you get it wrong in the uk.

But searching for fuel stations with the map took me to several locations where there was no such fuel station.

I ordered this item more in hope than based on any of the reviews, it worked brilliant, i was using a garmin 360 sat nav ( 3years old for uk )& would have got lost more times than i care to remember, it worked really well for me & always got me to within 10 to meteres of my location. Look at a map before you travel & use this product & you should not have any problems & you won’t have to pay insurance excess for rental or buy a new one if you are only going for a couple of weeks. Great product, great price well worth investing in.
