The Navman website www.navman.com.au has to one of the worst sites structures I've ever seen. I was recently given an Navman S50 which is a great little unit except that if you want to apply SP1 software update to the Navman then good luck.

Any time you try to install the update SP1 you'll b e met with "you need to have NavDesk installed in order to install this update" I Already have NavDesk2008 installed!

So i go to log a support issue on the website to be met with
Error:The page you are trying to access is not available. Please contact the administrator for more details.

My god.. this website sucks.

and no i haven't founf a solution to the problem yet but I'll let you know when I do.

Why do we have to put up with the same 4 channels?

So these days anyone with access to digital TV gets the benefit of better quality pictures and better sound but also a lot more channels. Or so we think.

Yes there are channels like SBS 2 and ABC 2 but then take a look at the major commercial TV channels most have a HD and a few SD channels which seems great until you realise most of the this extra channels only play the same programs.

For example 7-1234 & 7HD pretty much act as one channel. WHY! This seems pointless to me. You have access to 4 channels but realistically only use one.

I hear that this is up for review in 2009 from the government
