Hi - I purchased a LG P500 with NDrive installed with NZ maps. It works a treat in NZ and I am going to Australia in two weeks and I notice there is an option to 'unlock' the Australian maps. Has anyone done this? Is there a charge? If so, how much?

On looking at info section on Maps, I see Australia map is there. A single tap of the map gives me an 'unlock' option - which is encouraging, and a double tap gives me a 'buy' option - so is a bit confusing. I haven't taken either option yet - will wait until I am in Aussie in two weeks and will try the 'unlock' option. I'll report back and let you know have I get on.

I think you can factory reset your phone and unlock the oz map. but in this case you cant use the nz map.
