Sayonara Upgrades! For the past few years we have provided downloadable Upgrades to about 60 of our guidebooks. This was always something of a stop-gap, and we have decided that we can serve you better by putting our resources into getting guidebooks out faster. Upgrades were handy, but they never attempted to provide even a fraction of the new information that a new edition contains.

You'll see that a few Upgrades remain, and from time-to-time we might post information about major changes to a country or important amendments to a guidebook. In the meantime, your best source of totally up-to-date information is always the Thorn Tree, with over 60,000 registered users, many of them on the road or just returned.

Please note: Our Upgrades are in PDF format. To read them you need to have Adobe® Acrobat Reader® 3.0 or higher installed on your computer. You can download it free from the official Adobe site. The standard download is 5.6 megabytes, so it can take a while if you have a slow connection, but it's worth it! If you are using Windows 3.x, click on the 'text only' link on the Adobe site, which gives you access to a much smaller download.

Click on the links below to upgrade or print the upgrades.You can also download and save them to upgrade later; just follow these instructions:
Windows: Right-click on the Upgrade link and select 'Save target as..' (IE) or 'Save link as...' (Netscape).

Macintosh: Hold down the shift key when you click on the Upgrade link.
