T4A processed 594 data submissions for this version which does not only mean more roads and POIs (Points of Interest) on the map, but also corrections to the existing map and data. The overall quality of the map was thus once again improved significantly.

Loyal T4A Travellers often wonder if it is really worth upgrading their T4A GPS maps with every new release. If you know for sure that you are not planning a trip into Africa within the next six months then rather wait for the next version before you upgrade. If you have already bought the full map set you can consider buying a map of only the specific country that you intend to visit. It is possible to buy maps of specific countries online as downloadable links.
