... the problem was, it was that you had to put in the registration number of your car, then it would accept coins. Later on close inspection I found this written in very small type, strange. We set Bruce and again the address meant nothing to him, found a farm and a lady gave directions, nowhere near where the GPS said, I don't blame him in Italy they can have the same named town in three different regions, unless you know the postcode your a goner.
