A bit of a late start Friday as I was trying to get UK maps onto the TomTom. I tried just installing the maps a friend e-mailed to me (100 MB) but that didn’t work as needed a product code. Tried buying a product code over the phone for them and did not work so then purchased online the maps and downloaded them. However spent best part of an hour trying to find the product code for them, so I could activate then. Finally phoned TomTom support and they told me the newer maps don’t need a code if you download them directly and all I have to do is turn the device on and it will work!!
Was worth the wait though as the GPS is just marvelous. The speed camera locations are great also, even though less need in the UK. In a major difference to NZ, their cameras are not at all hidden but well signposted at their specific locations.
On Friday morning we had a look around Hastings. I do have to say I somewhat prefer it to the Tukituki version
Took a cable car up the hill to the old Hastings Castle. This was built by William the Conqueror in 1066. It has a wonderful view of the English Channel, being a few hundred feet up.
Then back in Hastings had lunch at this pub buit in the 16th century. It was wonderfully cosy.
I ordered a pot of mussels. Now we do not realise how spoilt we are in NZ with huge juicy mussels everywhere. Look at how tiny the mussel is – less than 1/4 the tip of the fork.
After lunch we headed North to Battle – where the Battle of Hastings was fought which changed English history.Tags: DPF, Hastings
