They also do a dedicated gps unit called Trakker Nav. I would post the links but unsure if that would be classed as advertising, maybe someone can advise if I can post the relevant links. You can also purchase a full map for Iran from a third party developer for the Garmin. It has good demo of it on Youtube.
I have not tried the maps yet, However I will be doing trip very soon and the setup I will be using is getting a Garmin Sat Nav and dowloadign the open source maps onto SD Card. I will be also purchasing the Sygic maps. Then When I am out there I will be able to try both and see how much difference there is from free to paid. Also it will be as back up incase the Open Source are terriable. I have heard from others getting lost in Iran with the open source maps and had to ask locals for directions.
Will be abit of trial an error, but when i did my research majority of the people said in Pakistan there is usually only one road to the direction you are going so its not hard to find your way around.
