Driving from Liverpool to Criccieth via the scenic route, just cleared the highest part of the a470 (just outside Trawsfynydd) when the brakes on my 2cv decided to give out. Pretty hair raising dropping down towards Porthmadog using engine braking and my hand brake to slow the car down on the twisty roads, certainly memorable.

I use a Nexus 7 (with no digitizer...) as a GPS in my car, I tether it to my phone (EVO3D or Infuse).
My most memorable road trip was from Montreal to Calgary to go snowboarding in Banff National Park. 45hrs each way with 2 weeks of spring slush riding @ Sunshine Resort in Alberta.

My most memorable drive was arriving in Ottawa with work and picking up a hire car, then navigating the rush-hour traffic - my first time driving a left-hand drive car AND an automatic!

My most memorable road trip was as a co-driver, where I have to guide the driver through the Arc de Triomphe. I was 12 years old ;-)

Finally arrived at my destination - Soissons, at 5am, in the middle of a fantastic thunderstorm! 1,000 miles in 17 hours (including one and a half loops round the Boulevard Périphérique in Paris when I missed my exit without realising!).

I went shopping with the girlfriend, went on the motorway to try a different route, only to have someone call me, interrupt my sense of direction, even though I was only going straight. Best of the all, the phone froze!
I started yelling at the phone, girlfriend in the passenger seat just laughing hysterically at me
Managed to get it sorted as the girlfriend helped with her calm and collective approach, so looks like women are needed, sometimes! Ha
Would love CoPilot on my phone!

Jumped in the car and drove from our campsite in Hollands Wood... Not too sure where we ended up, but the scenery was fantastic. Really enjoyed the views over the fields of heather, with the wild ponies and horses, some of which decided to cross the road we were driving on (trick is to slow to a dead crawl, but not stop. When you stop, so do they, right in front of you!)
Sometimes the best journeys are the ones done without any planning whatsoever, but they can also be the worst journeys!

The most memorable drive was down through France while going on holiday. The pesky sat-nav got a junction wrong which delayed us by about two hours by the time we got past that point. So we were running late and and I had to keep my foot down a bit to get to the camp site at a reasonable time. The only problem was that the bearings in the gear box were complaining at the start and got louder as the journey went on. But we made it there and round about and then home again afterwards without the gear box exploding even if my nerves were a bit frayed!
If I'd had CoPilot on my phone then I'm sure it would have been so much easier!

My most memorable drive was out in Napa Valley in California. What a beautiful country drive it was. The valley is covered with wineries and beautiful scenery. You don't want to drive fast as you may miss something. it was fun stopping throughout the drive and visiting some of the wineries to enjoy the good wine tastings but also some very good food. I spent the whole day just cruising around enjoying the sites, food and wine. What a relaxing trip it was!

Two winters ago (in the bad snow) I had to travel for work from Uppingham (Rutland) to Nottingham. Part way along the A47 my TomTom directed me to turn right at Belton in Rutland (a beautiful village) and I ended up on a narrow single track road which was OK until I got to a steep hill (I think the sign said 12% - I later found it marked with a 'double chevron' on the OS map ) which was completely impassable in the weather conditions (I had a couple of goes). I ended up having to reverse about 1/2 a mile before I found a farm gate with enough space to turn round. The scenery was stunning but the satnav nearly went out of the window (except I still needed it for when I got back to the main road).
