Lost and Found, 150 Range Rovers in New Zealand

Lost and Found, 150 Range Rovers in New Zealand

Around 150 Range Rovers have been driving around New Zealand for the last couple of years with factory fitted navigation systems from industry leader Siemens VDO, that couldn’t take them anywhere. Unfortunately when they were purchased, maps had not yet been prepared for commercial release in New Zealand. That has now been rectified.

“It would have been very frustrating for people knowing they had a highly sophisticated satellite navigation system in their car and not be able to use it”, said Luigi Cappel of GeoSmart, the company which has developed the maps for this system in New Zealand. “We are delighted to now be able to offer them the missing link. All they have to do is phone 0800SATNAV and select ‘1’ for mapping inquiries. The maps cover all 94,000km of New Zealand roads as well as the ability to search for all those important places such as Petrol Stations, ATM’s, public toilets, medical and loads more.”
