What's a satnav?  :)

An old piece of technology which allowed drivers to become hopelessly lost. Many people were recorded obeying satnav instructions to enter rivers, drive off quays, attempt to cross swamps and drive the wrong way down one way streets into oncoming traffic.

Apparently smartphones now fulfil the same function at twice the price.

We appear to share something in common there. :D

"How hard can it be to read a f**king map?"

"You are holding it upside down".

"How did you manage to lose the page? You only have one job".

I recall a friend travelling with me to Johannesburg who,  after picking up a hire car complete with Sat Nov,  was insistent on following it's instructions even when it was blatantly obvious that it was wrong and would have directed us onto the most circuitous route possible.  It took some convincing, despite my having made the journey numerous times before.  But... I did find the Sat Nov on my phone reasonably good in getting me back to the Railway Station on foot from Putoddrie stadium.

SatNav might have been even better!
