    When driving around I tend to rely on an old TomTom satnav, but using Waze on my phone more & more.
    However, the paper backup currently is an ancient £2.99 AA atlas from a garage's bargain bin!

    So, what recommendations do you have for the glovebox, and/or planning purposes?
    The go-to map book for browsing through with a glass of wine pondering tomorrow's adventure?

    Lidl \ Aldi normally have the updated version of your current road atlas on sale at this time of year but not seen them yet.

    See Onboard Library reply. There was a bloke at Peterborough selling them for only a fiver (originally £19.99). A bargain at that price, I think he sold all he had.

    I use the AA road map of Europe (many years old). The scale is too small to use for actual navigating unless you only go on the most major roads, however it's good for seeing what is around you that you might want to visit or route via.
