I wasn't sure where to post my query because it isn't strictly London but I know some posters have a London stay before/after their car rental & journey outside of London. So perhaps they can offer advice.
We're returning to London in Sept for 9 nights & then we're picking up a rental car at Heathrow for 5 days of exploring East Anglia. I'm so excited to be returning & this is the first time we've made 2 trips to London in one year. I'll be celebrating one of those milestone birthdays & there's no place I would rather celebrate than London. DH said, let's do it so we are.
So, now to my questions. We have a complete set of OS maps we've used on previous trips & they were very helpful for navigating. I would rather not rent a gps; too expensive. I was thinking about downloading the UK maps for our Garmin & bringing our own gps. Has anyone done this? Was it a useful addition to the OS maps? Or, did you get a lot of quirky directions?
Also, am I correct in assuming the 12V power connector should work in our rental car?
Thanks so much for your help & if there is a better place to post this please let me know.
