Re: GPS in Thailand

If you go to the main Tom Tom UK website you will find the Thai map download amongst other country downloads which are available for a fee of course.

Not all sat navs can download extra maps on there devices as there is not enough memory available.

second hand pickups

Thinking of buying a pickup for around 300000bht.Can anyone recomend a good dealer that's farang friendly in or around the udon ringroad.I know theres many garages about but i could do with a good toyota vigo if possible with a deposit of 30000 and the rest on finance over 4 or 5 years.

Where getting a bit nearer to the big day guys.Has anyone had any thoughts of menu choices and the price ranges we can expect to pay for a traditional three course.Oh and it does'nt have to be turkey just because its christmas.Duck would be a nice alternative.
