SatNav survey finds Irish men need more direction than woman

Irish men use SatNavs significantly more than the opposite sex, a survey by AA Motor Insurance has found.

More than 4,000 SatNav users were surveyed and the findings show men need more direction than women.

A quarter of men used their devices on a regular basis compared with just 14 per cent of women, the poll shows.

Only 5 per cent of all users admitted to using their SatNavs everyday, usually to track their arrival time to regular destinations.

Some 10 per cent of users admitted to almost crashing or having a collision when attempting to programme their SatNavs while driving.

"Whilst it's a fantastic tool, it's also important to remember that your SatNav isn't infallible," said Director of AA Motor Insurance John Farrell.

"If your instincts tell you you're not on the most practical course, take out your trusty map and double check.”
