Google have introduced a new feature on Google Maps which allows users to plan their journeys based on routes which provide step free access.

The Breeze S4 has been given a stylish new redesign by the guys over at TGA Mobility. The new design adds a modern look, while TGA have also introduced the option of a new ‘charcoal grey’ shroud. It is not only the body which has been redesigned, the tiller and dashboard have both seen changes, creating a more aesthetically pleasing look, with smoother edges and a better laid out display. A canopy (Pictured) can also be fitted, creating a more complete look, whilst also having the practical function of keeping the elements off of the user.Read more
