End of the road for maps?
A new survey reveals that the majority of drivers aged under 25 now rely entirely on satellite navigation - but older drivers still prefer a printed road map.
Car breakdown specialists Autonational Rescue commissioned the new survey around one key question: ‘When you set off on a long journey where do you get your directions?’
31% of respondents said they would refer to a road map first to double check location and route, but only 10% of under 25s would do this.
34% of respondents said they would print a route finder from the Internet and take it with them, but the same percentage said they would depend entirely on satellite navigation.
59% of under 25s said they would rely entirely on sat nav, compared with just 17% of drivers aged over 65.
