Never used our phones as they will not take towing a caravan into account.
I was nearly caught out in the early days by a low bridge on a slip road. I had to back up 100 metres to the main road. The clutch stunk.
Another year around the Le Mans area there was a takeoff before a roundabout with a low bridge of an overpass over the exit. Itís been modified since.
Using two Sat. Nav.ís at the same time is easy, one is used as the main unit, the other just a checker. Until I am happy with the new one. Anyway the old unit is now getting very slow in picking up the satellites.
Pity as it has the best voice and navigation system. I would have replaced it with an uptodate model but I had to have it replaced 6 times due to battery failures 5 were 5Ē models last being 7Ē. Just not going to chance it again.
What I did find was that the newer unit tells you to take the next turning sooner than the old unit. However this early turn advice could catch you out where there are multi takeoffs around large cities that are close together. Belgium cities have a lot of these type turnoffs.
I always start by plotting a route using Via Michelin on the PC.
In the end I use the old brain box and map for final route and then memorise it. The Sat.. Nav. Just refreshes my memory as we travel.
Remember I am doing a 200 to 250 miles each day towing and at the speed limits.
