It was not that long ago that a journey in the car was not as easy as it is today. If you were planning a day out you’d spend the evening before searching for the trusted AA map and then writing down the route on a piece of paper (after many an argument.) Then the internet arrived and we took our pieces of paper into the corner of the room, sat down in front of a monitor and still jotted down the route ready for the next day (maybe with slightly fewer arguments.) Next, we had printers small enough to … Continue reading The top Android Sat Nav – CoPilot GPS
In my previous posts about the Vauxhall Corsa we’ve looked at my first impressions of the vehicle and the driving experience, both of which have been far more positive than negative experiences. The big question and the one that this post hopes to answer is whether this is a car that can do the boring and mundane day to day tasks as well as adding in the elements of fun that I believe, the average man or woman on the street want in a car.

There are many aspects of motoring that appeal, putting your foot to the floor, watching the revs rise, hearing the engine note change and feeling the acceleration kick in is a pleasure that we can all access no matter what car we drive. Finding the perfect road, matching revs to gears to corners so that the tarmac appears to flow underneath you never gets boring whether you’re travelling at 20 or 60, it’s the road, conditions and speed limits that dictate.
