Gone are the days of stopping to read your map or the arguments that come from the co-pilot holding the A-Z upside down. The satellite navigation industry has changed the way we drive and for those of us who love to take our caravans and motorhomes away they are a godsend. Recognising the demand TomTom have launched their new TomTom Go Camper for help the touring industry cruise easy.

TomTom have actually launched 2 models in their latest range of caravan friendly sat navs, both of which make the perfect navigation gadget for the keen tourer. The TomTom Go Camper and the TomTom Go Basic. The Go Basic is the lower budget of the two models which is still great but does not have as many features as its big brother.

The feature packed TomTom Go Camper has been made with the tourer in mind and is a flagship model for the navigation giant.

Having found out the hard way many years back having the wrong sat nav can make a pleasant journey a bit of a nightmare when it comes to the roads you need for touring vehicles. The new Go Camper has been specifically catered to the requirements of both caravan and motorhomes users alike.

One of the new features is specific routing for your vehicle's dimension, an issue I ran into when visiting Richmond Park in South West London. Width restriction are not a motorhomes best friend. So this new addition would certainly remove any panic of inner city driving.

Whenever I go away you can almost guarantee that I will have forgotten something, so having to find the right shop is always a pain. The Go Camper's point of interest database is full of camping specific locations, as well as speed camera alerts all included.

Tired of the constant upkeep some sat navs need? The Go Camper features a built in wi-fi makes life easier when it comes to software and map updates. You can even connect up your smartphone.

This piece of kit seems like a winner. Specifically designed to assisted motorhome and caravan drivers with all the added features to make our life easy. Seems like a must have for this season.
