    Traffic updates in france......alternative to carrying a laptop and mobile modem???

    Were going to france by car and usually get stuck in traffic lol....and there is constant updates on the net so was thinking about taking laptop and getting one of those mobile internet modem things.....but its quite big to have sat in the car etc...so is there anything smaller that will do this??? and possibly give other details and updates...

    thanks in advance

    A neater solution would be a Tomtom unit with their traffic pack and a bluetooth mobile phone, not only will it check for traffic but it will give you alternative routes as well.

    Alternatively it doesn't need to be a laptop, you may be able to find a site which will give you the information you need on a mobile phone internet browser.

    Bear in mind though that regardless of the solution you go for, if it's a UK sim card the data charges are going to be reasonably hefty even with small amounts due to the minimum charge. An alternative would be to use a French sim card if there is a pay as you go package with cheap data.

    anyone ? lol

    I don't understand why it is a problem? Do you go to a difficult area? Most the time when I get to France, I get on the motorway and manage to stay at 130 km/h for aslong as I can stand. Just did 2300 miles to the south of France and back with travel around and about, the only traffic issue the whole time was when I went into central Paris.
