Had to empty the car out yesterday and amongst all the bits (literally) were my Satnav stuff and a UK map which got me thinking what other people do when travelling by car to somewhere new. I use my mobile and google maps for navigation most of the time but still use the map for those times the Satnav fails to work. We have all heard the stories of people getting stuck because their satnav provided a "shorter" route but has it ever happened to you? My experiences have been mostly ok, apart from a few glitches such as telling me to turn right at a no right turn junction, telling me I had arrived when it was obvious I hadn't reached my destination and the usual North Wales thing where there is no signal so the bloody thing is totally useless. So for those times I always left a real map in the car and I am normally fairly good at reading a map but will admit to the classic mistake of assuming I was looking North when in fact it was South and consequently having to ask a local where I was - which didn't help because the pronunciation of the name didn't match my interpretation of the actual spelling (I'm sure the Welsh do it on purpose ). So has your Satnav ever sent down a farm track, round the block or totally in the wrong direction and do you ever use a map today?
