Finding your way around
Navigation on Safari
Navigating the endless dirt tracks and washed out roads has always been one of the biggest challenges when traveling in Africa and Oman's wadis. Over the years the accuracy of the maps has improved and made life a little easier for the self-drive adventurer. In recent years Global Positioning Systems and Sat Nav pin point accuracy has opened up a whole new world in regards to wilderness navigation. This has in no way taken the fun out of driving but it does give an added confidence when exploring the more remote regions of the world.
Garmin have been leading the way in navigation technology since the early 80s. Their products are the best on the market. Built with the customer in mind they are acutely aware of the type of extreme environments their products will be put through. The ease of use as well as the rugged build quality make the Garmin units the perfect Sat Navs to put in our Land Rovers.
Tracks4Africa is without doubt the most comprehensive and detailed African road mapping available for Satellite navigation systems. T4A is a community-based project intent on mapping the most remote tracks in the African continent. The data is continually collected and updated by overland enthusiasts from around the world. The maps are of a level that will provide you with confidence and help you reach the most-hard-to-find camping spots. T4A run alongside a Garmin Sat Nav unit is the perfect combination of accuracy and ease of use.
