    Earlier this year me and my wife went to Hull for a few day, we left home
    went up the M1, M18 and then M62, we got to within one mile of the
    hotel we were going to stay at and then that’s where it all went wrong. We went up and down one road three times and we couldn’t find
    the hotel, in the end we ask someone where this hotel was because I
    was worried I might finish up on the Humber Bridge, anyway I followed the instructions I was given and low and behold I took the wrong exit a at roundabout ended up on the Humber Bridge. I was
    committed so I had to go over the bridge and come back, I had to go ten mile down and ten mile back and pay to use the bridge. At the toll booth they told me where the hotel was and I eventually
    found it.I finished up paying to use the bridge doing fifty miles and two hours to find the hotel, every time we went out we couldn’t find the hotel.I told them at the hotel the trouble I’d had trying to find the hotel and they said the sign posts are that bad you need a sat nav to get round Hull

    Tried to follow the A.A route master instructions to get to grandsons birthday party. It said to take first left onto Dearne road. We drove up and down three times and couldn’t find it. Eventually we stopped at a shop and asked for this road to be told that they had lived there all their lives and there had never been a Dearne road. We had to struggle with a road map and did find the venue although we were late. Probably should have had a Tom Tom

    Last year on my Grandsons 7th Birthday I took him to Paulton’s Park, a theme park including Peppa Pig with my daughter and Grandaughter. We are lucky to live fairly locally to this. We arrived quite early and as other children had started back to school the day before, the car park was fairly empty. I parked the car making sure it was locked not really taking much notice. You guessed it after a lovely day enjoying the rides etc we decided to go home. We returned to the car park before the rush which now was a sea of cars! All of us then separated scouting the car park for quite sometime looking for the car. I never want to experience a feeling like that again or the embarrassment. Luckily the children had a better memory than I finding it before I did! So I today I have treated myself to the upgrade of the TSV and a surprise xmas present for my daughter thanks to easy pay as she too drives.

    My husband & I had gone to a relative’s 60th birthday ‘do’ in Swindon and had booked into a hotel that we hadn’t been to before. Because we were late getting to Swindon, we live in Lincolnshire, we went straight to the said birthday. After the celebrations, it was late evening, we got detailed directions from our host on how to get to the hotel. For those of you that have never been to Swindon it is a nightmare of roundabouts and one-way. We were lost almost immediately & went round and round for about 2 hours. It was a rainy evening & no one about to ask. I was desperate for the toilet and in the end insisted that we go somewhere I could relieve myself.
    We turned down a very muddy lane where I precariously perched myself behind a bush worried that someone would come along with headlights glaring. I ruined my shoes along with my dignity but the last straw was when we came out of the lane, there in front of us was the sign for the hotel. We’d been within a knat’s breath all the time. We looked at each other and uttered one word ‘satnav’.

    A Race With Time.
    A couple of years ago my daughters and I travelled from the West Country to London and because we made this journey as a day trip once a fortnight for voice coaching we knew to leave in good time as the weather and roads had proved to be unpredictable.
    We encountered problems on the motorways during our journey, which made us behind time … Late .
    We had to make up the time somehow which meant and I had to make the decision to take the risk of increasing my speed a little,as my twin daughters had an audition with a record label and if the outcome proved positive would be life changing for them.
    We arrived outside London very late,giving us only 50 minutes to find our hotel and for my daughters to visually prepare for their audition and get to the venue of their audition,.they had already warmed up their vocals .
    We could not find our hotel despite the fact that I had downloaded directions on line.
    I fortunately looked down a beautiful road to the right of me and as I drove past I noticed a taxi pulling into a half crescent drive way in front of private residence. This was just a fleeting glance as I was having to keep an eye on the road in front of me! I had to get back to this taxi and hoped that what I had in mind would be successful.
    I decided to make a u turn …where I could and as soon as I could and went back to that side road… with my daughters asking “What was I doing ” ? . I knew I had to get back to that taxi driver.
    My aim was to catch the taxi driver who I thought may be able to help direct us to our hotel as time was ticking by. It was also impossible for us to stop and ask someone for possible directions on the road we were currently on!.We were just in time as the taxi driver was getting into his taxi to leave,I asked my daughters to ask if he would show us , if he knew of it at all, the location of our hotel .
    I was hoping that he would accept my suggestion of my paying him the fare as if we were in the taxi with him and for him to take us there, rather than for us to try and remember any verbal directions.
    He was our hope !
    They managed to get to him before he drove away and thank goodness he agreed !
    We drove through the London traffic and he was amazing …for me it was like being in a movie with my trying to keep close up and personal with him or we would have easily have lost him, the result being a journey wasted and with my daughters missing their audition.
    We were in time for the audition and arrived with 6 mins to spare.
    All the stress would have been avoided with a TomTom, and even though we did find it quite exciting, it was however really to stressful to risk any reoccurrence of this happening again.
    … We have not been without a ‘TomTom’ since . Thank goodness for TomTom.
