I have a Uniden TRAX 430 GPS that I bought from Dick Smiths about three years ago. The unit works fine and I find that the basic nav features are reasonably easy to use.It came with both NZ and Aus maps included.
However now that the unit is three years old I would like to update the maps information to the latest available. I asked Dick Smith Ltd can I buy an update card,disc or whatever but they don't sell updates or in fact they said they don't sell this brand anymore. Rang Uniden direct and the cost of a map update is worth more than I can go and buy a comprobale new unit like a TomTom or Navman for.
Can anyone suggest any other ways of updating at a reasonable price or does one nowadays just "bite the bullit" with built in obsolesence,chuck the old one in the bin and buy a new one? It just seems bad to throw something away that technically works well.From memory I think the update price was approx $250.
