Thanks for the information, you seem to have covered everything. In the middle of October I too will be heading to France and Spain for a holiday. I will report on my trip when I come home.
I go to Europe at least twice a year and I always use a Sat Nav on my phone. I recommend downloading the app WAZE. This is a totally free app. It is always being updated and the members that use it can also update anything that is incorrect on it. I use this app 7 days a week even though I have a top of the range Tom Tom. You will find that a huge percentage of people in Europe use this app. There are a number of invaluable things with it. As users are driving along the road they record where there are police doing speed traps, accidents, items on the road etc so if you are traveling behind you will be warned. If when you arrive at the sight of the warning and the speed trap is gone you can clear the warning for others. This information is always as up to date as is humanly possible. Try it and I'm sure that you will like it.
