How to Navigate in Australia with Your Car GPS

A little learning is a dangerous thing. THIS saying couldn’t be more fit to the learning of GPS, which sometimes is a little like learning a brand new way to drive. With your car GPS, you don’t have to stash in your glove compartment three different paper maps to consult while driving, and you don’t have to pull over to ask for directions. The question is: will the car GPS produced in such countries as US and China do the navigating job well in Australia? So how do you adjust to this GPS technology living in Australia? You are going to find out. 
Eyes wide open for choosing Australia GPS Maps
In Australia, the two largest map-making companies are Sensis and NavTeq. With the competition so heavy between Sensis and NavTeq, the race to provide more accurate maps for Australian roadways is on. Telstra’s Sensis maps are focusing on a greater level of detail and accuracy to meet the demands of the Australian market. While NavTeq is working hard to make sure they stay in the race, sending out its map car to map out Australia “one road at a time”, and they might be geared for Australian users. Both Route 66 and PolNav GPS Maps (software) use NavTeq as their map data provider. Focus on these products as you begin your search for an Australian-oriented GPS device that will suit your needs.  If money is a concern, make sure you stick to the lower-level devices that are designed for navigation novices.
Keep updated
GPS devices can receive updates to your maps of Australia, which results in more comprehensive information and accuracy as time goes forward.  Don’t simply buy your GPS and leave it alone; be sure to check in every month or so and see if there are any improvements you can make to the information you already have at your fingertips.
Do some fieldwork
Of course, you won’t know how well you can navigate Australia until you get out there.  No one’s telling you to head out into the Outback and throw caution to the wind, but don’t be afraid to explore a few roads and test your GPS a little bit.  After all, learning sometimes takes a little bit of guts.
