I promised before Christmas to give a report on the Ridepro sustepension update to my 2002 GU Patrol. The final cost was $1030 plus $39 for wheel alignment. We were camping in the hills near Dargo over the break so the new setup had a good workout. I'm very pleased. Drives like a new car. Had plenty of clearance on the rough tracks around Grant and Wonnangatta. If your looking for an upgrade, well worth considering.

I gave my wife a Navman ICN 510 for Christmas and so we tested it while away. It had all the tracks we went on - even if they were a little "off track". The voice instruction system works very well around town and through all the country towns. Paid $935 at DSE.

Peter,

If you are after detailed maps, you may want to have a look at the NAVMAN PIN, being a windows CE 2003 means that it can also run OziexplorerCE, which means that you can run any map you want including scanned ones or the NATMAP 250k.
All that plus the Street software that comes with it with voice directions.
In other words you get the best of both worlds.
Plus the PIN being a PDA can also be used for other things such as calendar, etc etc etc.
Cost is about the same plus Oziexplorer...
