Motorists hate sat-nav

Written by Nick Farrell



AA survey shows they prefer print

Despite being around for ages, motorists do not like electronic sat-navs and prefer a printed map. A survey from the UK Automobile Association shows that older drivers are the least happy with satellite navigation systems, with only 9 per cent of over-65s ditching printed maps altogether.

More than 63 per cent of the 23,824 drivers polled have used a printed map in the last six months, while 60 per cent have used an in-car sat nav. More than a third have used sat nav and a printed map thus rendering one pointless. Only 17 per cent of drivers rely on sat nav alone, but this figure is as high as 43 per cent for drivers aged between 18 and 24.

More than 11 per cent plan their journeys with a map and take written instructions with them, while only 5 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds do this. The survey also revealed that 1 per cent never travel far enough to need a map or sat nav.
