Manufacturer's Description

RAC have taken their expertise away from the roadside in order to produce this brilliant quality product that is miles ahead of competition and allows you to feel in safe hands throughout your desired journey. The software the 215 uses is Route 66 Navigation, which is highly user-friendly. It even boasts 7 digit postcode search, door-to-door navigation and maps supplied by NAVTEQ the no.1 in electronic mapping. An added bonus is that the 215 informs you of places of interest either in your destination or of places on your way, making sure you never miss out on local entertainment and more importantly that your needs are never unfulfilled. Need a drink? The RAC 215 will tell you where to go! RAC have even fitted the 215 with customisation options, fixed safety camera alerts and step by step voice instructions, to make your journey easier and easier! And if you needed any more convincing, the kind people at RAC are also offering 30% off breakdown cover with them, with every RAC unit, taking all the worries out of driving! With features like these and those below the RAC have left competitors behind and lucky for us, traveling has never been so convenient and easy!
