    Default Tracks4Africa specials during lockdown

    Make use of the excellent discounts on Tracks4Africa products (https://shop.tracks4africa.co.za/) during the lockdown period in South Africa. Note that delivery of the physical products such as paper maps, books and SD cards will only take place once the lockdown has ended, but that downloadable products can be purchased and downloaded now. Further information from Johann Groenewald (Groenie on the forum), owner of Tracks4Africa, below:

    This message is for all hodophiles (lovers of roads). While hodophobes* may be quite content with our current constraints, I am anxiously aware of all travel restrictions while we deal with Covid-19. What to do in the downtime? Plan a road trip!

    If you love the road and can't wait to get back out there, then I have good news for you. You can now buy our downloadable, Garmin compatible maps at lockdown prices. This is not a Black Friday deal to boost our numbers, this is our way of keeping all staff on board and paying salaries for the unforeseeable future.

    Since we cannot ship any physical products and all our retail outlets are closed for sales, we expect quite a big delay before our cashflow will return to normal. I have made sure that we have spare cash for a rainy day, but I am afraid this is no ordinary rainy day and it might become a rainy quarter.

    So I am slashing the prices of products which we can sell right now in order to give you a great deal. These are the maps you need for planning that longed-for African road trip. And in buying these maps now, you will be helping us tremendously during a very uncertain time.

    Your lockdown deal
    Our downloadable maps, which cover the entire African continent, usually cost R900 for a one-year subscription. You can get the year's subscription for R300 during the lockdown. If you have bought this product before, you will receive a further 50% discount, which means you can now get the GPS Africa maps for R150.

    I have also introduced a five-year subscription option for the above maps, which would normally retail for R1,750. During lockdown we are discounting the five-year subscription to R875. If you want to get access to our latest maps for five years uninterrupted, then this is the most affordable way ever.

    What do we mean by subscription? Our Garmin compatible maps never expire, so you can use them for as long as you have them, but the subscription entitles you to map updates during the time of your subscription. For downloadable maps we release four updates per year. You can download these from your user profile on our website and our staff is on standby to assist you if you need any help in doing so.

    Plan now, travel later
    I have decided to open up the sales of our physical products as well. We cannot ship hard copies right now but for that reason I have made them available to you at a huge discount. These prices are only available on our online shop (https://shop.tracks4africa.co.za/) and will only be available during the lockdown period. Please note that shipping will take place only once the South African lockdown has been lifted.

    I thank you for your continued support and I trust that you and your family will remain safe during this extraordinary time.

    I have also bought the 5yr deal, very happy with that BUT,

    Very excited about my new venture I wanted to install tonight, without success.

    Maybe not the thread to bring this up but when I want to unzip the file it gives message "Destination file could not be created"

    The guide makes it very simple, but when the laptop does not co-operate it is frustrating.

    With my previous version of T4A 190301 I remember having to get a special conversion/patch to do the installation.

    I'l have to phone on monday - just hope somebody is at the office.

    Hi Nicobie,

    Great, thank you for your support!

    We are all working remotely, so I am afraid no one will answer the office phone on Monday - please could you email [email protected] or myself [email protected] and I will forward your enquiry to the sales team. If you include your cell number, we can call you back on WhatsApp, and the girls are great with assisting you with TeamViewer (or similiar software).

    Regards

    This actually ticks me off as I just spent R900 on the full GPS maps the week before lockdown!

    Hallo Ghouwens,

    Please could you email [email protected] with your query - we would like to change your one year subscription to a five year subscription instead.

    Ag man, that's life! And it is a daily occurrence in retail. A least he gave a good and valid reason for the (unplanned) promotion.
