    I saw this site www.viamichelin.co.uk recommended on a previous thread, excellent route planner but does anybody know if it is possible to print off or download a route. Any help would be welcome I am not very computer literate.

    When you have requested a route just below the map above written instructions there is a print icon I have used this a few times I also now see a send to gps function witch I have never used.

    I did the route to Marjal a couple of days ago but when I tried to print out, Control P, it ended up being 23 pages because it was so widely spaced, so I cancelled the print. I think I will try to copy and paste to Word and then change the spacing but I don't know if that will work. ::bigsmile:

    Having just finished shredding 7 years of business paperwork I've kept tons of used A4 which I use to print unimportant stuff that doesn't need keeping for too long. Print on the blank side obviously and use fast draft so you don't use too much ink. :Smile:

    Yes it does Ivy - we used to use VM when motorbike touring and no Sat Nav.

    From memory though you have to highlight, copy, paste in chunks - if you 'select all' you can't edit it in Word. I think ...

    You could get rid of a lot of stuff and eg only have the pictures of the signposts on where you think you might get a bit confused. You don't need to know what the signs at every flipping junction look like if you are staying on the same road for 200 miles!
