    Im also in australia and remember looking heeps about this, i think grand mcnally has some software (for sydney only, im in perth) but they also have another package that you can scan in maps and use pictures from cd-atlas. All you need is to load the picture into and put in two gps points or latitude and logitude ponts then you can put reference points to your house or what ever.

    Can the maps be exported from the UBD CD? I found some software that can use bitmaps if the you know some positions on the map
    www.gpss.co.uk

    also has voice support and some other good features.
