Fred,
out of interest i input your gps co-ordinates in your signature to see if
the 'mapquest' on-line mapping linked to my 'easygps' shareware would give
a detailed map. i accept that where i am there is very little detailed
mapping available other than on a comparatively small scale, and even worse
for the mountain areas as you might expect. but i thought it would be
better for your co-ordinates as you are in the centre of jo'burg after all.
but the software would not get down to your street, it looks like that side
of the city is not mapped, the mapping only going out as far as craighall
park. i guess you have other sources of mapping apart from maybe on your
gps itself ?
so can you or anyone tell me of a free site which has more detailed maps
than those found on 'mapquest' please?
many thanks
cheers
