I've just realised that the satnav on my phone won't work over in France so it looks like I'll have to buy one which does. I don't want to pay a fortune out, as I don't use one often in this country, so it looks like a shopping trip tomorrow. I also need to put the rubber push on water connecter in as I have no idea what French connections are like.

I've just found a free 60 day trial version of Autoroute 2011 on the Microsoft site and also found my Microsoft GPS mouse. As long as the trial version accepts GPS connection I should be OK.
