Feature set looks great, however based on past experience with OS-sourced data the regional maps on SD will probably be extortionately expensive!

£99 Each

Though think about buying a 4GB SD Card and adding our own 'custom area' data is still a cheaper way of doing it.

I guess the OS Data on the SD cards are highly compressed and encrypted.

(hence why cheaper to by your own)
