Some answers to a few questions:

The mapping data is much improved since the Mapsend Streets product. For example, the inland waterways are now coloured correctly. The data and maps are based PSMA Road data as of Dec 2002

SD card usage - It is possible to load all of Australia onto one SD card but you will need 234MB of card space. Alternatively you can just put portions of Australia. Approximate space for each state are:
 
       WA       39 Mbytes
        NT        13 Mbytes
        Qld       61 Mbytes
        NSW     56 Mbytes
        SA        26 Mbytes
        Vic       20 Mbytes
        Tas      19 Mbytes

Security, two GPS's coded to one copy of DAST.  Downloads to SD cards are now coded to the serial number of the GPS. ie the downloaded file and the GPS must now match for the map to be displayed on the GPS.

An SD card reader is highly recommended. See our SD Card reader/writer range here.
