An e-roadbook in the form of an app.
With our Roadbook for Discovery we introduce another way of guided navigation: we use an app containing the itinerary with instructions on which direction to take, points of interest, things to see, where to stay and much more. As soon as you are on the track, the app will zoom in, show you where you are and you can start driving.
It works off-line, with everything you need downloaded into the app.
New way of navigating
You will be guided on the way, if necessary in unclear situations with a picture and an arrow. If there is a stretch which we recommend you need to check before you drive it, the app will tell you so. See the following pictures:
Concentrate on where you are
This a very easy and convenient way to navigate, allowing you to concentrate on where you are rather than on where you have to go. You can use it if you’re alone in the car and have to do both the driving and the navigating. Or your co-driver can tell you what to do – and indeed if you have your family or friends in the car, they can all have the app on their smartphone or tablet and keep track of what’s going on.
Currently available roadbook
Right now we have our first roadbook available in the app. It is a trip through central France, starting in the Chèr region and continuing south into the Auvergne. It is suitable for SUVs (i.e. four-wheel driven cars without low-rang gearbox and on regular road tyres), yet interesting to drive for those with a more off-road biased vehicle.
This year we will add at least two more trips, one through the Pyrenees and one through Basque Country and Navarra.
The following PowerPoint slides, in PDF format, will give you a lot more information about what you can expect from the Roadbook for Discovery
Ordering a Roadbook for Discovery
If you want to order an e-roadbook, do the following:
- Go to the page with the e-roadbook you would like to have. Currently there is just one.
- Add it to your shopping cart by clicking on the button you see near the top of your screen.
- Go to Checkout and fill in all the fields of the order form.
- Select your means of payment and pay.
We will be notified and will set up your user account for the app and the trip you have ordered. This may take a day.
When we have done so, you will receive an email, with links to the Apple Appstore and Google playstore. Click on the one you need according to the operating system of your device.
Download the app and log in with your username and password. After you have confirmed that you want to download the trip, it will load automatically into the app and you can use it.
