    1) Look at the map and see where you want to go.
    2) Open book, in the front are maps.
    3) Find the map that relates to the area your looking at.
    4) Find the dot that you want to go to.
    5) legend on page will tell you what page to go to for each coloured dot.
    6) Find page and look up name of place and follow directions.

    HOWEVER if you have the latest book you will need the extra bit as the page numbers on the maps don't work ( big cock up by someone) Do you have the extra bit?



    Forgot to say its brilliant when it works

    Ok while you still have grumpy head on. find the map page you want and then check the "erratum" for the page numbers then look up in the right place
    What sat nav do you have

    there are over 90 errors on the erratum sheet - and since i don't know where i am going in France i will have to change them all...... i have just registered my dissatisfaction on the phone with Vicarioius Media who sold it to me - i look forward to a return call from the manager on monday.

    so .... thats my evening sorted !!!! my satnav is a garmin.....

    But at least i now know how the book is supposed to work !! thanks to makzine....

    Ok can't help with sat nav as we have a nozatec but putting coordinates in should be quite simple and they usually take you within a hundred yards or so of where you need to be.

    Just a tip, if you have a destination in mind please pick it at least 2 ( preferably 3) choices in the area. We've had some great France Passion stays, real gems. But we've also pulled up at some terrible ones and driven on to to our second choice. For example back of a factory with nobody around or a thicket of trees in the middle of a field well away from a producer.

    Can I ask, where did you get the information to amend the book from?

    Only applies to the multilingual version. The French language version is fine.
