    Default What is it with Sat Navs

    I use a motorbike every day to commute into work, from Seaham to Newcastle, which is about 17 miles each way.

    I pass the same cars every day (motorbikes, great for filtering through traffic on the Felling Bypass) and they always have their sat navs switched on.

    They also have them switched on when they are going home on a night time.

    I ask myself, do these people not know where they work or more scaringly, do they not know how to get back home??

    Satnav's aren't always for finding your way you know - they do other stuff too, like warn of roadworks, traffic, accidents, have Bluetooth etc...

    I use mine a lot purely for the mileage countdown, especially on the motorways...

    Some people just put them on to justify owning one since they don't go places they don't know very often.

    I can undestand that Sat navs have other functions, but these people are driving 5-6 miles in nose to tail traffic! Any important road conditions will be reported on the radio!

    Nope these all look like old Tom Tom units! I guess it is just a case of fit and forget?
