After the military, the next big user of GPS units were world cruising sailboats (see my avatar). During the first Gulf War sailboats began using GPS units to cruise every conceivable body of water on the globe. Back then, a unit that simply gave you latitude and longitude cost over $1,000 USD. Garmin/MapSource sells a wide variety of electronic charts and maps for downloading to their GPS units. I'm sure you will be to find something for both Godzone (NZ) and Aus that will download to an Edge. Great people down there...you'll love it.
