At last there is excellent quality online route planning and mapping available to businesses in South Africa. It is available as a page to add to your website. We have been working with our supplier for over 6 months and it is the same quality data as is available on GPS devices such as Garmin, Tom Tom, Road Angel etc. How does this tie in with Google mapping....?


I would be delighted to speak about it. Vanessa Sand - AA Travel Guides Please look at sample on www.essentialtravelinfo.com/route_mapping.html (This link is broken?)
