Not from that company from an Aussie ebayer. Are you saying that they work nowhere else in the world than North America ???

If you goto http://www.magellan.com.au and follow the links to the Aussie reseller it says.......

Built-in mapping
With 8 MB of built-in Australian maps it’s easy to navigate around roads, parks, waterways and to find airports and other points of interest.

If you go by that I'm guessing its useable here aswell... I'll be sending it straight back if it doesn't work over here as the seller has claimed it will...
