[access-uk] Re: TREKKER BREEZE

I bought my copy a couple of months back sadly when it wasn't on promotion and received a code by E-mail. Maybe Talknav buy so many licences and are having a promotion? I don't know the ins and outs of buying bulk licences and whether you have to sell them within a certain time, I just know what I read!

Hi Dean,

While stocks last?  What does that mean?  It is an electronic downloadable
product.

All the best

Hi Jackie:
I suppose that Trekker does have a little extra
overall but if I were you I'd consider Access for
2 reasons.  Price and it has a screen and can be
converted into a standard in car GPS in seconds
so a taxi driver could make sense of it.  Talknav
are selling it for £200 down from the usual £259 at the mo while stocks
last.
