Kit for travel, adventure & relaxation this Easter
We’ve got everything you need to enjoy the bank holiday weekend.
It’s the first bank holiday since the new year this weekend and if you’re planning to make the most of the great outdoors we’ve got a few tips on how to make it even better.
Finding your way
With features such as lane guidance it's the hassle-free way to navigate.
If you’re jumping in the car for a day trip or weekend break make sure you have a sat nav.
It will mean no one having to take on the role of map reader and one less thing to worry about.
A sat nav is a great investment if you travel by car and a system like the TomTom GO LIVE 1005 Europe comes fully loaded with maps for 45 European countries and includes Advanced Lane Guidance to get you to your destination as quickly and smoothly as possible.
The menus are user-friendly and with a bright 5” Fluid Touchscreen – allowing you to pinch to zoom in and out of maps, or scroll through menus with the tip of your finger – navigating is even easier.
There’s the added bonus of voice control too, meaning you can set your route, change the volume and even make hands-free calls without taking your eyes off the road.
The device will also re-route you if there are hold ups ahead.
To find out more about sat nav features read our buyer’s guide.
On your bike
Get out whatever the weather
If you want to get out on the road or into the countryside, but want to ditch your paper map, then the Mio Cyclo 300R will help you find your way out and back again.
The 300R is easy-to-use and weatherproof, which is always an advantage on our isles. Pre-loaded with cycle routes and road maps you can choose to navigate a route or select the Surprise Me! feature for a suggested route.
The screen is 3 inches so is easy to read and the anti-glare display means it’s suitable in any light conditions.
The 300R will even suggest points of interest along the way and keep you up-to-date with your time, speed, elevation, distance and calorie consumption.

Something more relaxing
You won't need to worry about holding down the pages in the wind with the Kindle
If cycling’s not your thing and a trip to the coast or somewhere hot and sunny sounds much more your cup of tea, then you won’t want to forget to take a good book along with all the usual essentials.
Invest in your own portable library with a Kindle Paperwhite and you’ll be able to take up to 1,100 books with you – and take advantage of unlimited free Cloud storage for Amazon purchases.
The Paperwhite is even better than previous models with 62% more pixels and 25% better contrast, so you’ll be able to enjoy your favourite reads anywhere. If you fancy even more however, why not consider a Kindle Fire HD?
