Beware of Geolives:
I dished out 4.99 euro to download local IGN maps. (No receipt, no mail, no nothing, just Paypal transaction record)
Everything worked fine for 2 weeks, then after an automatic "upgrade" I could not access the maps
(loaded on my memory card).  when I contacted Geolives, the answer was "you have to pay an additional
yearly fee to access your maps... !
Well, this was not part of the original offer.  I call it a ripov.

You have bought the optional Premium module which allows you to download maps for an offline use. This module now costs 1,59€/year.

However, in order to access the maps, you also need an IGN France subscription (maps are only free for one month). This subscription costs 11,99€/year.

Best regards.
