Ah no, that's cool - I've obviously got where you live wrong - thought you were further east than that...ignore me, carry on... ;)

I may well be able to tag along to the trip after all if there is space for another!

Last kin change of plans and all that. Meet you part way and tag on from there if that's OK.

Sure Joe. Maybe you can take a look at the route after I've shared it and meet us en-route.

Sounds like a marvellous idea! I will keep an eye out for the route.

I know you guys use TYRE from time to time. I have Tom Tom on my phone, can it be used on that or just a standard Tom Tom GPS unit? Either way I will make it work!

TYRE has not worked for me for some time. I think they stopped maintaining it in line with the the Google API that powers it. Instead looks like they go more to an on-line subscription based service. So that was a bummer. :? Until this morning, when I find the new version of ITN Converter works flawlessly. :D

I've sent both CoPilot and TomTom files, so you should be able to download the TomTom version into the routes folder for your app on your phone. I use CoPilot, so can't confirm, but don't see why it wouldn't work.

No problem at all.

I use Tom Tom Go premium, so its £15 per year (or a quid something a month) and gives you all the map updates and allows you access to Tomtom MyDrive where you can create routes and share them in GPX format for the mobile app and the traditional stand alone units I believe. The other bonus is you can add friends so you can see where they are on the map at all times while on the journey, probably quite handy on a run out like tomorrows?

I haven't used the MyDrive properly yet but seems like a good bit of kit for this sort of thing. Its a shame someone like WAZE doesn't offer a route creation and sharing tool that's any good for free. Hey Ho.

Drop the file over when you can and I will see if it works.

Great run out - lovely weather, although played cat and mouse with the only rain cloud in the UK on the way home :D

First time on the Zig-Zag hill, that was fun apart from almost going into the bank on the first corner, not realising how tight it was :shock:

Went and did it a second time - here's some horrendous video where my car sounds like a tractor, for some reason - it felt much quicker than it looks :D
