Garmin 755T

I have a Nuvi 755T and my complaint is not so much about the unit as the mapping.
Firstly, I was on a semi major highway in Victoria and couldn't believe how far out the unit was. For several kilometres it had the road about half a kilometre away in a paddock. I know for certain that the road has been in that position for two decades.
Next I went to get European maps for an upcoming trip and found you could get them for $99... if you're based in America. In Australia, where I live, exactly the same download costs $139 and the Aussie dollar was stronger at the time of writing.
I complained and the main gist of the reply was "General business factors drive our pricing as they do for any business in Australia for example, market size, labor rates, logistics and warehousing and IT infrastructure etc. " which I found unsatisfactory for a download that probably comes from America on line anyway though I don't know that.
Cheers all
