Help pre setting destinations on Tom Tom Nav

Hi,

Leaving in a couple of weeks and just downloaded the USA maps for Florida.

Apart from the parks which we have pre set as favourites, are there any other destinations we should set?

Thanks

I would follow the signs for the theme parks rather than blindly follow a computer, or else you might wind up in the employee parking lot.

It would help to know where else you wanted to go. LOL

I downloaded WAZE on my iPhone , much better IMHO than google maps, gave up to minute traffic reports, police , cheapest gas , we drove back from st Pete beach on Monday , and the sand lake rd turn off was busy due to construction , it brought us off earlier, saving time.. I don't usually use a sat nav , but it's on all the time now

Plan to visit shopping centres (all of them), some mini golf.

Really I was looking at suggestions of places to go as well.

Us lovers the amount of people I "nudged " in the parks was unbelievable !! No one looking where they were going, stopping suddenly and walking round like space cadets!!! After a while I just barged past them with no regard , a couple of oriental people were REALLY obnoxious ,, on the ferry to the kingdom, I had to ., er correct their manners with a sharp word cos my Grandkids were on the verge of being trampled, they were oblivious??? Argh .!!!! I'm a bad tempered car transporter driver.... Get me outa here!!!!!!!!!!

You could always look out what restraunts you want to visit and save them, and save florida mall etc which will make it easier to find when there. Let me know how it works over there as im thinking of doing the same, alot cheaper than renting one.
