ReadMoreA rather quiet week on the GPS news front so, with summer in full force a timely reminder. If you'll be driving to France on your holiday please ensure you are fully acquainted with the laws on use of satnav and smartphones that have a speed camera warning function. There is a €1,500 fine if you're caught using a device that has this feature activated. You also risk confiscation of the device and your vehicle so please disable the alerting features before you travel.

There are other requirements including high-viz vest, warning triangle and a certified breathalyser, get the full details here.
