You can't rely wholly on sat-nav, always useful to have an Atlas.

Bargain at 99p! Plenty of stock.

I think you are the one showing a CLEAR lack of common sense

Also - 99p for an atlas is a lot cheaper than any sat-nav

I have used sat nav for about 5 years now, and it is indispensible - but I would never be without a road atlas too.

It is sticking ignorantly to sat nav errors that have made the idiots stuck in narrow lanes and drowning in the middle of rivers a laughing stock, filling the pages of the Daily Mail; when those of us who want to be sure they have the best journey can be certain with a simple glance over a 99p Atlas!

The only ignorant people / idiots around here are those that:

1 - read the Daily Mail
2 - and are then dumb enough to believe the urban myths about people drowning in rivers which the likes of the DM make up for idiots....

Having said that...99p for an Atlas is an excellent deal, just in case the sat nav goes down. I always keep one in the boot " just in case"

Hot and rep added to OP...Thanks !:thumbsup:

Can't beat a paper map. Hot....even though it's collins and I work for the OS.

I bought one the other day as I didnt have my sat nav as it was in the folks, got my round the peak district no problems!

Hot Hot Hot!

These are 79p in my local Home Bargains.
Have bought one. They show places to buy green fuels, motorway services, detailed city centres. Excellent to keep in car.
Also have satnav, but if I want to plan a visit or holiday in an area an atlas is essential.

You're a bit of a no-brainer too! :w00t:

With an atlas you actually get to find out what's around you rather than blindly following what a computer says.

What's the scale on these maps? I wouldn't buy anything less that 2.5 miles to an inch.

eeeerrrr maybe they dont have a sat nav ever thought of that and its always good to have a back up

We were coming back from sweaty sockland last week and the sat nav freaked out when the wife still got lost and took a wrong turning :roll: it was sending us back and forth between 2 roundabouts - luckily I've looked at map once and a while and knew if we just followed the signs to Edinbrugh we would pick up the A1

what would have you done blondie pulled over and called daddy :whistling:

our old atlas came in very handy last weekend when someone fell off a bridge on the the M1 and there were serious holdups. Sat Nav won't take you round it. Taking notice of the "delay signs" and getting the atlas out, took us via a couple of villages and avoided the two junctions in question and we weren't stuck for hours like some people were. So, I'll certainly be buying one - have some heat

Don't know what sort of sat nav you've got, but mine is easy to avoid just about anything! Again though, especially when going on odd routes like this, a quick check of a paper map makes sure it's not a looney route it is planning
