Trip (rough) itinerary attached.
What's wrong with Wales? Far more interesting than Florida

I would strongly recommend them - I've had one just under 4 years (still going strong), and it's my main media consumption device (newspapers, magazines, books, casual web browsing, shopping, videos).

Renault Carminat Live Tomtom 2019 V10.05 Europe Navigation for my son's car as for some reason his car is missing this

Got it alot cheaper online than going through the garage where he bought it from.

I always use Google maps on a smart phone, the only cost is a little data.

Edit..... I see it is built in so that is more convenient.

Yea it is SnoopZ but for for some reason the previous owner or maybe someone viewing the car at the garage has decided to take it.

I think it will benefit having a sat nav that is up to date and as it was built in I just thought what the heck as we were going to
buy him a dashcam but he beat us to it.

Not complaining this worked out cheaper.

Re: What have you just bought?

New oven as the old one gave up last night, they certainly don't make them like they used to do as we only had it for 7 years.

Re: What have you just bought?

Our built-in oven is about 35 years old but it's on it's fourth or fifth element as it gets a lot of use. This is the part that commonly fails but is relatively cheap (~£17) and easy to replace: About 15 minutes work with a Philips screwdriver.

Though it seems that the newer elements don't last like the original, I guess they're being made down to a price as well.

Our oven lasted about 12 years before it went so l we bought the same oven again just that it was more a modernised version of it.
