Some folks only request information, which is fair enough by me. Maybe they don't want discussion, chat, banter etc. Different people want different things from a forum, and that's fine.  If

Right now, yes. You can still get Iced Gems, but Lincolns drowned without trace when Crawford's Carlisle factory flooded out on 13th November 2009. By a poignant coincidence my Mam passed away the same day, and i always associate Lincoln biscuits with returning back from shopping trips with Mam.

I got a Saturday job at Woollies on Hyson Green whilst I was at school, I am fairly sure we had an overall to wear think it was turquoise. When I left school I worked there full time until I started at Boots offices on Station Street. Do Saturday jobs still exist now?

Too many rely on sat navs, and are totally unable to read maps. A ludicrous situation.

Motorists asking for directions.

When I used to travel on business many years ago, before satnav, I used to stop at a newsagent’s on the outskirts of the town and buy an A to Z. I still have have a cupboard full of them ranging from Accrington to Yeovil!

We had  loads for use on Forest's away trips. Alternatively the Good Beer Guide sufficed.

Since you bring up Satnavs, Mick.  Here's something I've always wondered about.  Maybe some of our techie guys might have an answer.  The original satnav has no aerial yet is supposed to be receiving satellite signals.  My tv needs quite a big dish to get signals and it must be accurately set up not moving around.  Modern smartphones with the correct app can now fulfill the role of Satnavs.  A mobile phone does not claim to be connected to a satellite. Sooo.  is it working via a process of triangulation?  If so is that how satnavs have always worked and never connected with a satellite?

Dave I use Here Maps.

Pre downloaded maps on the phone & then uses the phone's built in GPS module as Rog explained. The beauty is this app uses no data & can be used in walking, cycling or driving mode. Works very well.

Not knocking your info, Rog.  The question is still can such a device connect to a satellite?   Especially with the car twisting and turning etc.  when other systems need a carefully aligned dish.  Just doen't quite add up to me.  Part of the unexplained I guess.

 

Edited to add.  Thanks Mick.  Your response just came in as I responded to Rog.  above.   I'll read over it somemore.
