Hi Jason.

Not really, our map company has told us they "should" have maps for both Australia and New Zealand by the end of this year but then there is still the issue of getting them from the Map Company's "GDF" format into what both Trekker and our GPS software use called "RichMap" format and to do that we need to have a Filter for that region. Telcontar who creates this map engine and filter have to do the work and how it usually goes is some big company (such as Google, Yahoo, etc.) pays Telcontar tens of thousands of dollars yearly to create the filter and update the filter with each new release of the GDF maps. Once that is done then we can usually get the filter for the new country at a fraction of the cost.
