    Need a GPS map and have encountered problems in simply getting a map download. Have Garmin Home Base setup. GPS Travel Maps has a dysfunctional site in regard to download of their Laos map so that is not an option. Would prefer the Duvall Laos GPS Map but it appears that it is not available-- maybe memory card only-only in Laos? Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Keith

    Thats a bit odd. Don is still in business in Lao I believe.

    Don Duvall Facebook

    Ask for a Paypal refund.

    Yes-- I think it is a system problem of some sort -- will try to contact Duvall via Paypal

    David-- On a different topic. I am hearing all sorts of reports of 2018 border issues claiming that no VN bikes can be taken into Laos. Also statements that one cannot re-enter VN on a VN bike unless it is in the province in which the VN bike is registered. Some statements about Cambodia as well. Am planningVN- Cambodia-Laos-VN on a VN registered 120cc bike and am wondering if it is now impossible. 26907598_2010766102272924_5957227906591453256_n.

    I m planning a trip from vietnam to laos and back in vietnam

    As i m renting the bike in hanoi (already rented from same compagny) I asked 3 days ago if crossing border viet- laos was possible anywhere...the boss replyed me that:
    - " For sure you can cross border to lao with any bike from Viet nam
    At now should not cross Tay trang border ( belong Điện biên phu )
    Other border is easier."

    Is anyone has eperienced issue with crossing viet into laos?

    Thanks

    Ange
