Garmin III Plus GPS The proposed route that Debbie and I are planning on taking has been well travelled over the last few years.  A person could almost travel the route without a GPS and mapping software. However, the technology is available so we will be using it.

We are using the following software packages :

Garmin MapSource
Tracks4Africa - provides the most updated African roads

Download GPS Waypoint for our route


The following screenshots show the various software packages available.

Sony DCR-PC120

Waypoint Workbench - a very handy Excel spreadsheet which calculates and converts GPS waypoints

We will be taking a number of books and maps with us - click on each book to visit the Africa Overland Network book page.
