The grand adventure started early in the morning in the Czech Republic. Our dear colleague Richard's car started up like one in the morning and so the Project started. We were lucky to have a present from the car company Opel. The new navigation system can be supplied with a brand new car SD card. Which is very handy. But what we had as back up was a hard drive with navigation maps. We didn't even know how to use the files at that time, so the big challenge was on our side.
But nobody was going to stop us, it was our journey to unlock the navigation maps. We spent a week in a UK technical hospital to fix the maps on the hard drive. But we are lucky the school owner had an old Navi 900 but with a non working navigation system in his car. That was the back up we were looking for.
We went out again to the country car park, from there all we could see was a house with an old car standing quietly in front of it. We were not sure if the house behind the car belonged to the owner of the car or not. As we were getting closer we saw a man standing in front of the house. As we were just a bit too far we didn't want to interrupt something important so we decided to walk up to the car and see what was going on. We were still getting closer when the guy walked to the door and opened it. We got a glimpse of a car. But it was to big for the car park, and we were still much too far. We walked closer trying to get a closer look but still nothing. Then the guy left the door open and walked into the house. We stood thinking we don't get any closer to our objective but we eventually come across a car at the back of the house. We couldn't recognise what kind of vehicle it was but it was 2012 OPEL NAVI 900, and it was not working. So that gave us the next clue to get the maps onto the car. It was not our first adventure retrieving the navigation maps for the years 1997, 2001, 2003 and now 2010, but we never regret so far. This year we become the record holders with the number of car models with the SD card in it. d2c66b5586
