More than four in ten people have got lost or taken longer to get to their destination because of an unreliable satellite navigation system, according to a which.co.uk survey.
Around 38 per cent of the 2,191 people which.co.uk asked had used a sat-nav system but for some they produced disastrous results.
Nearly half blame their sat-nav for getting them lost or for taking the long route to their destination.
Around a quarter (26 per cent) of those fed-up drivers have ditched their sat-nav system or relegated it to occasional use as a result.
Which.co.uk editor Malcolm Coles says: ‘Sat-nav systems are the latest must-have gadget, but our survey shows that they aren’t always reliable. To reduce the chance of getting lost, check the test results of the latest models at which.co.uk.’
