... a Tom Tom sat nav and treat all the fam­ily to an amaz­ing road trip

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - COMPETITIONS -

With the bank hol­i­day sea­son well un­der way, it’s time to think about how to make the most of your ex­tra two days of hol­i­day in May. If you want to keep the chil­dren oc­cu­pied, or just get out of the house and ex­plore the undis­cov­ered sights on your doorstep, hop­ping in the car and go­ing on a road­trip could be the best way to do this.

TomTom, lead­ers in satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion, of­fer TomTom Road Trips, a free web­site which helps you plan the most breath­tak­ing ways to get from A to B. The web­site in­cludes 93 routes around the world, seven of which are in the UK and Ire­land, in­clud­ing a scenic route along the Isle of Wight, a pic­turesque vil­lage drive on the At­lantic High­way through Devon and Corn­wall and an op­por­tu­nity to visit Ben Ne­vis by driv­ing on the Road to Isles in Scot­land.

Pro­vid­ing both pre-planned routes and the abil­ity to plan and cu­rate your own route, TomTom takes the stress out of go­ing on a road­trip, mak­ing it easy to dis­cover the most amaz­ing roads.

Lo­cal to Belfast, there is the Cause­way coastal road trip (as seen on this map, above right). This route is per­fect for those look­ing to ex­plore their lo­cal area and visit per­haps pre­vi­ously undis­cov­ered sights. North­ern Ire­land’s dra­matic and rugged coast­line (left) takes cen­tre stage on this jour­ney, al­low­ing ex­plor­ers to en­joy the peace and quiet of the sea while stop­ping at var­i­ous fish­ing vil­lages along the way. Fur­ther along this trip you can step back in time to Dun­luce Cas­tle, a beau­ti­ful me­dieval ruin that was built on the dra­matic coastal cliffs of north Antrim in 1500. Next, you will come across the fa­mous Gi­ant’s Cause­way, many ar­eas around which have been used as film­ing lo­ca­tions for Game of Thrones.

Driv­ers can also ven­ture up to the largest and most un­spoilt moun­tain ranges in Ire­land — the Sper­rins — be­fore reach­ing the Beagh­more Stone Cir­cles, all of which are as­so­ci­ated with cairns, and a stone row runs to­wards these cairns. Be­yond the global pre-ex­ist­ing TomTom road trips on the web­site, users can also cus­tomise and cre­ate their own routes, mak­ing it easy to find and book great ho­tels, restau­rants and things to do on the way with TripAd­vi­sor rat­ings.

These routes can then be synced in­stantly to a TomTom sat nav, ready to be driven and ex­plored through the TomTom MyDrive App — avail­able on phone, tablet or PC.

In this spe­cial com­pe­ti­tion, we have two TomTom GO 6200 sat navs to give away, worth £339.99 each. With a built-in SIM card and wifi con­nec­tiv­ity, this de­vice of­fers smarter, faster and bet­ter nav­i­ga­tion, al­low­ing users to en­joy con­nec­tiv­ity with safety through voice-con­trolled, hands-free call­ing and smart­phone mes­sages. To be in with a chance of win­ning this amaz­ing prize, just an­swer the fol­low­ing ques­tion: How many UK and Ire­land routes are there on the TomTom Road Trips web­site?
