Some good GPS app for the road. Car plate is a good function if you need to drive in plate restricted area in some bigger cities as it will re-direct you to allowed roads.
Apple iOS maps is the only well working GPS navigation software in mainland China. Download from Apple Store.
*”License number” function. In some cities, there are some restrictions on license plates/ numbers. Entering the license in the GPS it re-routes the track accordingly
These are the rentals we have rented from or have paid visit when looking for one. About half of them don’t really have official pages and we have been able to find them either from internet or by one the apps we are using.
This way of traveling is still in early phase in China and for example caravans are totally impossible to find for rent. Notice the caravan will need class C6 driving license from April 2022.
We were lucky and found one place in Shanghai that rented caravans (MIY) when searching from internet.
We cannot provide the direct contacts on the pages for the renting companies but those can be found in the apps or by contacting us. Mostly our communication with rentals have been thru WeChat.
Some small rental we checked out. Few RV’s and the condition was not the best. Mostly concentrating of modifying and repairing RV’s
