Have just got back from a 4000 mile trip in France and Italy in our 1.5 DCi Techna Note. Great mileage of overall 62.1 mpg despite full load of wine etc on return journey.

Had some problems with satnav at first despite reading handbook carefully several times. We could not programme some names into satnav as it kept jumping to places we didnt want.

To save others much frustration and use of bad language we eventually found that unlike TOMTOM which we had used previously this system :

1. Needs exact correct spelling eg Saint, St, St- make a difference
2. Needs accents on e etc which are found by pressing number letter button at bottom left of screen.
3. Unlike TOMTOM will accept French and italian postcodes to locate correct town quickly.

I had to eat humble pie on last one as I told my wife several times that Satnavs only accepted UK and Dutch postcodes.

Hope this helps anyone going abroad. Finally traffic warning system was great as it saved us a two and half hours delay on motorway near Boulogne by rerouting us through Lille to Zeebrugge ferry.
