RoadTour is a clever new software program which delivers short audio-visual travel guides to your satellite navigation system detailing nearby places of interest. It runs from your satnav memory card and contains around 600 UK heritage sites and 900 ‘best pubs’ which should be good for the drink driving business. Unfortunately it only works with Garmin satnav devices and Windows powered GPS phones at the moment, but hopefully they’ll extend the range of compatible devices sooner rather than later. £29.95.
ROADTOUR delivers audio-visual guides directly into your car via your Satnav or GPS enabled mobile phone, automatically telling you about interesting locations as you approach them. Using ROADTOUR you can hear all about the nearest castle, see pictures of historic homes and even read all about the best local pubs.
