So the guy I bought the ADV from sent me the GPS. :D  :D
A Garmin V, now, I can see that Tracks for Africa is loaded (CD included), but I cant seem to go to addresses, does that meen that City Celect Cd is not loaded onto the unit(CD included)

I'm a total novice when it comes to GPS.

Its my first time :lol:

Not sure if i ever said this, but, nice bike :thumbleft:

If i a not mistaken, T4A maps are non routable. You cannot find something like an address on them, that is why you have Streetmaps.

But i stand to correction though!
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing!

Ja you still have to load the maps from the computer onto the GPS

I have my laptop and my GPS with me today. If you want to come for after work drinks I can show you how to load them
