Why can't you use your mobile? Presume there is nothing to stop you using a GB SIM in the phone?

Pre download and cache the appropriate GOOGLE maps then use in the UK, I've cached maps for use in France with no problems at all.

Someone like TESCO does a pay as you go SIM for £1.00, minimum top up £10 and 500mb data for a month for another £5.

fairly inexpensive solution.

The signals in the Yorkshire Dales is decidedly iffy, dont rely on a mobile phone for GPS is my advice, use a map !

Plan your route and check this website out ..

Its a beautiful place with loads of photo opportunities , have a great time

Ps , Try to get to Whitby on the East Coast and Robin Hoods Bay .

Photos of both I think, are on my flickr .



I will add Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay to our notes.  This entire thread has been extremely helpful!
