Left A Bit, Down A Bit

I need to find someone with an A3 scanner here in Astana, as I intend to try out the GPS feature of my HTC TyTnII next year, here in Kazakhstan’s capital. As I could not find any decent digital maps, or even just scans of road maps, I tried scanning in a fairly recent poster a while ago. As it was a lot larger than A4, I tried to scan it in segments, then stitch them together. Unfortunately the task was not exactly completed well, and although it is usable by human eyes and standards, I know that using it a basis for navigating using Lat/Long will result in a lot of inaccuracies. Anyway, if anyone hears of a friendly company willing to do a high res scan of the map for me, I’d be very grateful.
