    Hi, we have been invited to a wedding in France and are going to take the mh over and have a week touring after the wedding. I havt tom tom on my iphone but apparently you can't just buy maps to add to this you need to but the full app each time for the countries youwant. Having looked around there are lots of sat navs on sale for around £100 at the moment which have european maps included. Any reccomendations or ones that should be avoided? Thanks:Smile:

    Can recommend TomTom. They now do a specific one for trucks/motorhomes but regrettably this is not one of the discounted ones.

    Review

    Having read a review of the £149.99 option it seems expensive for what it is. I think I would just upload Tom Tom Western Europe for the Iphone (£50) and remember to look ahead, upwards and sideways a bit more.

    I agree, the iPhone app is incredible. You can also add live services to it, with live traffic, you can use google within the app and you can take a photo and then navigate to a photo as well as co-ordinates.

    You can navigate to a contact from your contact list or a recent destination.

    This is my all time best app for iPhone and as it is your phone, you always have it with you.

    I have tom tom western Europe on my iPhone.
