    Hi everyone,

    My wife and I will be arriving in South African in two weeks time and renting a car. We are bringing our own GPS and wondering which road map product is the best.
    I can get Garmin City Navigator for $99 US or South Africa road map from TravelMaps for $49.95 US. Just wondering what you South Africans use and recommend.

    Thanks!

    Reid

    Yes you can rent a car with a garmin, don't buy one, unless you'll be using it again in USA. If you dont come right, I will even lend you mine for your trip. Just PM me and we can make plans

    Wow, thanks for the offer but we already own a GPS. The price to rent one with our car rental is pretty much the same as buying the SA street maps data for the one we own so we are thinking we may as well buy it and own it.
    My wife still has family in SA so we plan on returning every few years and we will no doubt use it again. We have lots more cool stuff to do and see! :)
