........bate then.

As an old hand and one who very much enjoys the odd "fishing trip" on this Forum, I can't help but chuckle when seeing new folk like yourself rising to the lure. Don't take offence Codpiece, it's all in good fun. Given time you'll no doubt get to meet a bunch of us and I'm sure you'll find we're all pretty decent folk. In fact, once you've met up it makes the banter all the more enjoyable.

Anyway, Phil Davies and me are currently collaborating on a new fishing venture which, I hope you'll enjoy and join in with oonce we cast our line.

Chris.
........an independant system for my car. follow this link www.tomtom.com and it should lead you into a new system call the TOMTOM GO.

Take a look and see what you think. It cost 450 give or take and during the 5/6 days I've had it I must say I am very very impressed. My pals who have Jags, Land Cruisers, Porsche Cayenne's etc which all have built in units have commented how very impressive it is.

If you want a full report look up Pocket GPS World in your search engine and search there for TOMTOM GO. There's a very comprehensive report on it.

If I can assist further, please, feel free to ask.

I've just bought an independant system for my car. follow this link WWW.anyfeckin'garage.com and it should lead you to a new system called a feckin' map.

Take a look and see what you think. It cost 2.99 give or take and during the forty odd years I've had it I must say I am very, very impressed. My pals who have Minis, Escorts, Novas Etc which all have glove boxes (to keep the feckin' map in) have commented how very impressive it is.

If you want a full report look up "Where the Feck am I" in your search engine. There's a very comprehensive report on where to buy maps.

If I can assist further, don't feckin' bother to ask me.. ask at yer local garage like every other Nobba......

Like you I find.......

......www.anyfeck'garage.com a superb source of information offering not only numerous variants of "feckin'maps" both in size, price and detail but also a superb array of "feckinsweets" - "feckincrisps" & "feckinsoftdrinks". Unfortunately my glovebox (similar to those found in Novas, Escorts and even A4's) became so stuffed with the same I had no room for the "feckin'map" which you describe. Furthermore, I often found myself suffering from the "what the feckin' hell did you say" ear problem which oftern occurs when in aforementiond "anyfeckin'garage" due to both me scowse accent and the mandatory "No Formal Qulaifications - Literacy - Common Sense - Good Manners Required" qualification that most employers of "www.anyfeckin'garage.com" seek as a prerequisite of employment for their staff.

TomTom on an Ipaq with GPS is great - far more versatile than dedicated car system - you can even get OS maps and marine charts as well.

Even better when you find out where to download all the maps etc............

Really helped big style when driving through Madrid and Barcelona!
