    We have TomTom the app from I-tunes and Campercontact on Jennies I-Pad.
    They work together seamlessly and the I-Pad sits in its case up on the dash and is very easy on my eyes.
    As is Jenny !!!

    Campercontact for me. You can download all the maps and info and it then does not need an internet connection to work. BUT, like most of the apps it works best when you have a GPS receiver and only ipads with a data sim have those - wifi only ones don't. You can get a bluetooth GPS receiver that usually works though.

    Campercontact gets our vote. Simple easy to use and cheap. And other good thong can be used off line.

    1. Campercontact
    2. Sygic (with poi loaded)

    Back up with maps.me with POI from searchforsites if needed. Use this for planning if done.

    We use the Copilot app. I cant remember the exact cost, think it was around £25 but well worth it. We use it instead of the tomtom, very easy to use.

    Hi.
    Have just had the g/daughter around,and she has tried to download the Campercontact app. We are getting as far as "Yelp?",but it is not allowing it to be downloaded.
    In fairness,the Samsung Galaxy Mini is at least 7 years old,could this be the problem please?
    As youngsters do today,she said."Meo do really cheap phones that will do what you want to do..........80 Euros!!!" WHAT ? I bought a made to measure suit for 9 Guineas.......................... (A while ago.....Shhhhhhhhhh)

    Yes but remember Camper contact is a Dutch based so probably not to many UK sites listed.

    although certain funsters have a downer on search for sites, they are just cutting their nose off to spite their face, it's got the lot, only problem it has to be connected to he Internet..
