    More important stuff

    ROUTING!!

    Chaps, Gordo has looked through the routes and there are a few issues that have now been addressed It is due to dropping a waypoint flag onto a seemingly innocent bit of road, which is actually a dual carriageway, and the programme wanting us to turn round to get to the flag, which inadvertently was plonked on the wrong carriageway

    Ahhh the joy of mapsource

    Anyway.. they're now sorted so

    PLEASE DISCARD THE ROUTING YOU HAVE ALREADY BEEN SENT

    This means off your computer and off the GPS Gordo is sending a revised set of routes that have been checked and as far as we know are ACCURATE

    Hope this makes sense

    2 weeks to go!

    Routing:

    OK, I'm about to send out the routes. The only changes I've made are where there were a series of 'get off the motorway and go back on yourself' instructions........and...........because I'm a camper, it's camping biased..ie. it's campsite to campsite. The B&Bers will simply need to bang in the address for the B&B when they get within a stones throw.

    It'll be crazy to rely totally on the satnav. Please ensure you have some sort of hardcopy paper mapping and the address of campsite etc and as usual with satnavs...please use some common sense when following the instructions. I haven't travelled many of these roads so cant allow for the satnav telling you to go straight on when in fact it's a one way road against you etc. I'm sure there'll be some such obstacle en-route.

    As Bryn said, delete all the files loaded on the PC and Satnav before you install the replacement files: Please let me know if you dont receive your copy.

    Think that's about it: I'm happy to fend any questions for those on the Croatian route....Bryn's looking after those en-route to Poland.

    have fun
