Er, yes, I know, but forgot to mention it, although you need to install it onto a PC before uploading to a PDA.

I'll amend the first post.

Anyone have POI for tom-tom with the start of some lanes, I have the one with fords.
I suspect that each lane from POI would have to me individually evaluated and checked that it’s still legal; however the POI would come in useful for some further research.

On the Landranger or Explorer OS maps BOATS (Byways Open to All Traffic) are shown as "++++++++" on Landranger and "+++++++++" on Explorer. However, it is very advisable to check with you local Rights of Way officer to check that the lanes are still legal to drive and that there are no TRO's in force (Temporary Restriction Order) in place. Get caught driving a lane that has been downgraded or has a TRO and you will get a section 59, 2 of them in a year and your lovely fronty will be reduced to a small cube :cry: :cry: :cry: Thanks for the heads up on that last lane in Wales Drift :wink:

Yeah, couldnt agree more. However, have been trying to join GLASS for the last week, done the login bit, done the pay up bit, get emails back saying thanks for the cash and .....


..... Still trying to get on the main site (need a mod to 'authorise' the account it seems) and then it'll be off to the Wayfinder site to repeat the process...

Good job I wasent needing the info for the weekend!
This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here
