especially considering if you own a smart-phone and install google-maps and navigation. which are both free and constantly updated. installed into every smart-phone i've had.

According to the AA people are more likely to get lost using Sat nav than the people who plan their routes with maps..I know that every time I have used a sat nav it has never taken me direct without some kind of a c*ck up but maybe that just me being an oldie :smt005

Sometimes you can't beat an old fashioned map. ;)

For example I still have a 2006 road atlas in the car - on holiday I've used it to find places of interest to visit whilst away. :D

Sat nav and smart phones are ok when there's a signal but at least viewing the route on a map (even if that is on google) is always handy, helps plan fuel stops etc.

Like mark, I have a map that I use to plan things while on holiday.

The Clio has a UV filter on the screen and the wife's fusion has a heated front screen, both of these reduce the sat nav/phone signa which can be weak anyway in rural areasl (when using them they are best off near the windscreen). Also, I'm not paying loads for a bike specific sat nav, so a folded up map in my tank bag is useful.
.
11 stone wet through, a bit of a pi55 head, and a little difficult to understand, but still decent entertainment.......

Post Re: Coming this Thursday at Lidl
if i hadnt been given a sat nav when my dad upgraded id still be 100% maps.
i mainly use sat navs to aid while on route, but i do normally plot it before i set off not so much with full paper maps. but atleast check google etc first.

i do have an old map lying about somewhere but tend not to bother with it

Finally decided that some Sat-Navs had become good and cheap enough to consider buying last year, just before a driving holiday in France... :lol:

Had an underwhelming experience before with Sis-in-Law's 2009 spec. TomTom, (as she did and soon gave-up on using it much) but majority of
reviews I read suggested a Garmin was the best way to go.

It is often frustrating because of it's 90% reliability. Most of the time it's very good and the extra features usualy work well - but it can land you
in the sh*t at the worst possible moment and it's hard to predict when it's going to do that to you.
Also it often won't plan the very best route available, even when using the various shortest/fastest/eco fuel-saving route filters #-o

Now I find it's often best to start the journey on 'fastest' then change to 'shortest' route when required. You still need a real map as back-up
and I'm glad I kept mine \:D/
2009 Proton Persona 16V IAFM saloon Automatic Ecologic, (Mica Black - my does-everything chief wheels)
2017 Citroen C3 1.2 PureTech 82 'Feel' hatch, (Ruby Red/Black roof - Wife's new offbeat 12V trolley)
1993 Porsche 968 16V Tiptronic Coupe, (Black, been 'sold' twice now, but no-one actually pays...)

Very nice!! :twisted: I used a friends 50lt compressor when I did the engine swap on my car with air wrenches etc , what's this one like for that? I really don't have the room for the larger compressor - but could find somewhere for this one if it's up to the job. ;)

i must admit i haven't used it for anything like that, if you keep it plugged in then it will fire up before its empty anyway an while its on it takes a while to run out of air, ours is tired now and maked a racket but still works for what we use it for (cleaning out stuff with the blower and pumping tyres up)

Checked with my friend who lent me the 50lt compressor - the lidl one is a bit small for air wrenches. :(
