    W*nker!!(Not T4M_VX, The Sat Nav Tw*t)

    It's highly amusing, but common sense would tell you your in the wrong place wouldnt it!!


    I have always said, if you cant read map, dont under any circumstances buy/use a Sat Nav, as its a recipe for disaster!

    I think i'd know not to go as far as they did.. you know, being a normal sane bloke and all that..

    I dont see how you could blame that on satnav.. undue care and attention more like, What a pillock..!!

    also dont go in to nottingham town centre with one as it will drive you insane. after getting some fish at the marine shop and setting off back home, the tomtom was showing that i wasn't on a road at various times and kept recalculating. it then would find the road i was on 100yards later and again recalculating and sending me in circles almost. 20mins later ended up giving up and i switched it off and headed for the m1. I was almost screaming at it.
