    My 3.2 GSi has the CD70 Navi SatNav fitted, giving dynamic routing via TMC.

    If you've not got that, just follow the local radio for the area you're in..... failing that Radio 2 gives decent national reports often through the day.

    We've got it on my headunit but don't really want to set off to get half way stuck or even worse lose the car, can't afford to smack it.

    Thank you, just looking at them now. Didn't think they'd be that much ice around today here as it's been raining on and off all day but surprised that there is so much.

    Was it this one? http://www.keepmoving.co.uk/home_anon.aspx. This is also interesting for your weather reports as a lot of the info is taken from RAF stations and civilian airports. http://www.xcweather.co.uk/GB/observations

    Thanks guys, roads were fine ish but could see them glistening at whiddon down where the A30 was shut earlier today and the garage forecourt was quite icey. Made it home until I turned off the A358 into the village mum lives in and rolled along at 10mph as it's really bad, don't help that there's only about 100 people living in it. Can barely walk up the garden path it's that slippery so time will tell when I get up for work at half three tomorrow!
