The first step is to create a map of the area you're visiting, by picking a town or postcode. Then you add key addresses, which show up as symbols along with points of interest (public buildings, museums and other landmarks), restaurants, railway stations, garages, service stations and car parks. Depending on the zoom you choose you'll see some or all of the road names and you can search for a street or any of the points of interest, but more usefully you can find a route between two places, with driving or walking directions.
The directions aren't always perfect but combined with the highlighted route and the landmarks Route Planner is a very good way of navigating around a town. With Route Planner Great Britain 2002 you might never get lost again. --Mary Branscombe
