Before setting off please make sure that you are going to the right place by agreeing the destination as
displayed with the pilot. Farm names and road names as opposed to numbers are available on Multimap
as are aerial photos. It is equally important that you ensure that the last bit of the journey is as MSN thinks
it is as MSN is not designed for true cross country ie farm & field trips. The actual entrance to the field could
be from an entirely different main road and via several other fields. Hence the importance of agreeing with the
Pilot their exact destination and from which road to get access to the field. This system is meant to help
common sense not replace it.... It is no fun turning large glider trailers in lanes so please make sure that
it is accurate before leaving...
