We have a large collection of North and South Island tracks documented with free GPS track downloads for each track, plus there’s a community built map of every gravel road in New Zealand and a New Zealand T2B(Top 2 Bottom) route is under development which you can contribute to or download, plus there’s lots of info in our forums.
You need to be registered to access and download the track information but it’s all free.
