Re: Can anyone recommend a GPS app or device for trip

it depends what kind of roads you're going to go through.

we have always used (believe it or not) google maps lol
we have however GAIA gps and GAIA topo maps, they work offline pretty well ! (you just need to download the app)

Re: Azerbadjian with my car

Hi all,
I'm currently in Aktau getting the ferry to Baku.
Our car is a 2004 RHD (Australian regsitered).
I have my e-VISA ready, but i read a lot of different reports, does anybody have clarification on driving old (14 years) and RHD vehicles in Azerbaijan?

Many thanks in advance and safe travels!
