If you are planning to take your motorhome or caravan abroad this winter we have one or two tips that should help you get the best out of your sat nav.
1. Update the software and mapping on your sat nav before you leave!
There have been a lot of road changes over the last few months and quite a few software improvements designed to make your sat nav operate better and route more effectively. If you’re not familiar with the update procedure, we’ve put together a number of useful tutorial videos on our YouTube channel Aguri World. Click here to go straight there.
2. Use the Specialist POI data to calculate a route to your chosen campsite.
Routing by post code is really not recommended when travelling in France and Spain. Their post codes can often cover very large areas especially out in the countryside. The Specialist POI data supplied on the device includes over 30,000 campsites and the coordinate of the entrance of each of them has been accurately plotted. As a result when you calculate a route to a Specialist POI, you will be directed to the campsite entrance, whereas the post code location could be quite a long way from where you need to be!

3. Route by coordinate.
I know a lot of users carry different campsite guide books and many of them include the coordinate of the campsite as well as the address. As mentioned above, routing to a coordinate is much more accurate than routing to an address or post code. So, if you see a coordinate, use it!
Finally, if you ever need any assistance or advice, whether you are travelling at home or abroad, please contact us, we’d love to hear from you. Call 0330 102 5578 or if you have internet access, why not try the Live Chat service on our website.
