Or an older Tomtom unit onto which you can load the Tomtom camper maps.

That’s what I have done. A Start 25 unit works a treat. It has lifetime updates for the original maps but the Camper map updates have to be paid for.

Being a bit suspicious I devised a cross country route that I knew would pose “Issues” for a MH or caravan. The Camper mapping system routed me exactly the same way as I would have done knowing the “dodgy” bits. The “standard” mapping took me cross country on the route aI would have chosen if I just had a car.

So I am more than happy that their mapping algorithm works a treat


P.s. I am sure someone will be along shortly to say that Garmin (or others) are just as good, which they probably are. I would be inclined to work out the cost of the various options before parting with your hard earned.
P.p.s. I have read that the cheap Chinese Camper satnav’s on offer on eBay are pretty good!

Just seen Raynippers post that went on whilst I was composing mine !!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
