    Hi I have just inherited my daughters cast off:Smile: and am now a member of the more modern mobile sect :Smile: I think!!!! Anyhow as I have now grasped the basics of running the beast I would now like some input from you funsters as to some useful apps (I think that's what you call:Doh: them )to make my life easier when out in my van. I only do uk at moment and am not as yet a member of any caravan/motorhome club only this one.:thumb:

    From memory I believe that if you want to plan a route then full (paid) version is required ,though I stand to be corrected

    I've discovered (by trying both) that you cannot 'search' using the free version. So I shelled out the money.:cry:
