but kindles dont use dongles.
i use a dongle on the side of laptop or desk top. sometimes it keeps dropping out . i phoned orange . they said turn off computer. then back on ,as it comes in after you press for internet . go on network page switch 2-3 g or auto . cant tell you more than that. i have only ever used a dongle or got free internet from antenna . havent had a land line for years . kindle seems expensive to me . not too good on the eyes as well . have looked at them.
i dont do xmas . in fact i try not to spend much on anything . except trucks n motor bikes hee hee.

Last year I toured Wales from Tenby to Anglesey from mid January until June. I then went back and toured from Harlech to Aberaeron from August to November.
Each time I find a wild camping spot I add it as a POI to my TomTom, including what type it is and whether you can get mobile internet there.
Is there a way of getting POI's off a TomTom to some other usable format does anyone know?
