    does anyone use Via michelin for route planning?

    beware!!!!!

    just tried planning my route to invermoriston(loch ness) for next weekend.

    entered the start and finish locations and it told me it was 397 miles:thumb:

    correct..:thumb:

    now reading the turn by turn directions it also gives a mileage between junctions/turns/roundabouts but add them up and it says its 640miles.

    it is, infact, 397 miles so dont rely on the turn by turn mileage.....it aint accurate.

    yes, i use it when on the continent, just in case the satnav fails, i carry pre-printed route maps. have always used kilometers, and wonder if your intermediate distances are in k's.

    it does same miles on the turn to turn directions but it just about translates to Km

    spot on Des...:thumb:

    just checked it in Km and Miles.

    summery says 438 Km and intermediate says the same.

    tried miles and the summery says 272 miles but the inter says 438 only its listed as miles.:Doh:

    another one of lifes mysteries solved....:thumb:
