"Once upon a time we had to use maps and sellotape handwritten directions to the dashboard of our cars!"
This 'back in my day' story has my kids rolling their eyes; they can barely manage to go to the shops with their friends without having to sat' nav' their way there on their phones.
I discovered the joy of satellite navigation a few years ago when it came bundled with my, then, Blackberry - it was a revelation and I'd not be without it again (the sat nav - I don't use Blackberry any more).
It has a ton of features - too many to list here - but you can use it to find your way on public transport and foot, as well as in your car.
I like the public transport idea; too many times I've been somewhere and need to catch a bus but have NO clue where I am or where the nearest stop is to where I want to be.
