Navigation myth busters Planning a big mainland tr ip or going off-road? It’s important to keep your in-car navigation maps up-to-date before setting off on your next adventure. Don’t be one of the few unfortunate travellers who fall victim to a couple of common GPS myths before setting off. Myth one: In-built car GPS devices update the maps themselves – no, they don’t! Myth two: Rural roads and 4WD tracks don’t change all that much – yes, they do! Australia’s mapping expert Whereis® has launched ww w.whereismaps.com, your one-stop-shop to purchase GPS map update software for your in-built car navigation system. Simply order your new software online and when you’re ready to update, you just need to make sure you keep the car engine running while you remove the old disc/SD card and insert the new. After about ten minutes, you’re done. The new maps come with updated rural and selected 4x4 track coverage. If you’re unsure about the uploading process or having trouble locating the vehicle’s electronic navigation unit (that’s where the disc lives), check your owner’s manual or contact your dealership. The latest version of Whereis® mapping software covers more than 99 percent of Australia, including accurate and cur rent data on metropolitan and rural roads. A good in-car navigation system helps you avoid getting lost in any unfamiliar or familiar location – so before you head off, update and stay on the right track. 55+ development heeds advice from top demographer The innovative new lifestyle development Ver ve, cur rently under constr uction in Hobart, is fully in-sync with trends emphasised recently by respected demographer Ber nard Salt. His research suggests that baby boomers will re-engineer the concept of retirement and their accommodation needs w ill change to reflect new lifestyle requirements. Susan Parr, CEO of St Ann’s Homes, and the visionar y behind Ver ve, said she was inspired to create a nation-leading development while undertaking a study tour overseas. “Countries such as The Netherlands have been trialling a revised approach to housing and aged care for some time, incorporating the premise ‘use it or lose it’,” Ms Parr said. “Bernard Salt told us that baby boomers will invent a concept he describes as a ‘portfolio lifestyle’, where they are partly working and partly retired. Ver ve has been specifically planned to meet the long-ter m needs of this generation.” Ver ve includes the latest in environmental, social and technological design. It incorporates a number of forecast trends identified by Mr Salt, including the r ise of green values and active retirement.
