Bonecruncher GPS systems for cars (51* d) RE: GPS systems for cars 29 Jul 07

So far I have yet to see a SatNav system that can give as much information as a map, or as cheaply.
What SatNav will give you information on the type of terrain (craggy mountains or rolling chalk hills with dry valleys), the steepness of the hills (useful if towing a caravan or trailer) the classification of the road (motorway, A, B or C class), all of which are most important in planning your journey.
A map, when properly read, gives a picture of the terrain in the same way as a photograph of an artist's landscape. Isolating a small area gives a macroscopic view.
SatNav does have the effect of dumbing down simple navigation to the level of the idio , sorry, lowest common denominator.
For the benefit of Sapper82, above, papers when bound together are referred to as a Basic Optical Organisational Keeper (BOOK).
