Hi, in a couple of weeks we leave, with first stop Avignon, and will pick up a Europcar rental (via Autoeurope) with GPS at Avignon TGV, a VW Polo or equiv. I do not use GPS myself, never have, and am wondering if someone can clue me in so I have some idea when I go to use it. I called both Europcar and Autoeurope and neither were able to say which brand or model GPS unit would be in the car, which I can understand. Part of one day we are going from Avignon to the Pont du Gard, easy enough. Other days we'll be out to Gordes, Roussillon, LaCoste, Bonnieux, etc. and I imagine that's where it may get a little more challenging. We will have Michelen map along.
My questions are:
1. Do I need an address or GPS coordinates, or can I simply enter intersecting roads as in Google maps? Does it like to know postal code?
2. What are the chances this unit will be an English speaker?
3. Is it better to skip the learning curve, toss it in the back, and use a map?
Thanks for any help!
