    We use CoPilot app on a tablet and have it mounted on our dashboard of our Bessacarr Motorhome. You can set up your profile with your vehicle dimensions so that in theory it doesn’t take you down any road where you can fit or turnaround. It clear and easy to use and so far we have used it for trips to the Lakes, touring Scotland and touring Wales and its been spot on. As a back up we always use a map and have the Camping & Caravan Navigation Atlas. The only negative in having it on a tablet with no wifi is we don’t have traffic updates which you could upgrade to if it was on a smart phone, we just use another app for that.

    Having just spent 4 weeks in Brittany using only the “Aires-France” book. They give the campsite locations in Latitude and Longitude (eg N48*39.307′ W002*19.939′). It is extremely accurate, especially as the last figure is a thousands of a minute which is equal to 2 yards. Had to use the “Coordinates” setting to enter the Lat and Long on my portable car sat nav. More accurate than postcodes!

    We where on holiday in Dorset last year, using a Tomtom 6200 with built in phone chip, The route put us on around 15 miles of single track road , absolute nightmare. On return I purchased a Tomtom 6200 lorry satnav. This was set up for forty foot long seven and half foot wide and nine foot high vehicle. This satnav is also equipped with phone chip and wifi, and was updated minutes before leaving on a trip to Jaywick from Tamworth. The Satnavs map was not up to date with the roadworks around Cambridge on the A14, and believe it or not managed to put us on single track road for about 5 miles before we got to our destination.
