I'm not sure you can buy ready-made raster maps for your bush. Maps for your eXplorist you can do from any paper map with the aid of the scanner, and two programs - GlobalMapper and RMP Creator.
Maps and space photos, which is on the Internet, you can download and convert to RMP program Mobile Atlas Creator - http://mobac.sourceforge.net/
If you do not succeed, I'll help you.

By the way. In Brisbane, lives a great expert on raster maps, and author of the excellent navigation program OziExplorer - Des Newman.

OziExplorer is great, I run it on a Windows tablet and have used OziExplorer CE on a variety of Windows CE based PND's. In fact, it runs very well on my Magellan Triton 1500. I suspect you could also run it onthe Explorist 510.

I prefer to use non-touch screen navigators. But I do RMP maps of the maps for OziExplorer.

Phil, Just found out that the Jungle Ghost (he is a dealer) is offering Explorist 510 and 610 units with choice of Europe or Australia/New Zealand Summit and City car navigation maps included.

I just picked up the offerings on eBay.

Just in case, you are interested.
