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.

I think one of the best things sliced bread are satnavs. A free phone app is all you need. Much better than any paper map ever was. I learned map reading in the boy scouts too!!

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?

The aerial wire runs along the edge of the device hidden behind a steel band

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.
