In what appears to be a growing trend, the citizens of another UK town are taking to the streets with a hand-held speed camera - this time it's the turn of Farnworth, a subdistrict of Bolton.

Local councillor Jean Gillies says she has no shortage of volunteers following her application to Bolton Council to fund the device and associated training.

News: Younger Drivers Lost Without Satnav

pocketgpsworld.com
A study carried out by University College London suggests that using a sat nav "switches off" the parts of our brain that are responsible for memory and navigation and makes navigating using only road signs and traditional maps more difficult. This means you are far less likely to be able to remember a route without relying on technology.

Unsurprisingly few young people would feel confident relying on road signs and a paper map to navigate. In fairness that was a skill that few even of those of us old enough to remember driving pre-satnav could say we truly excelled at.

However it does seem that there is a big difference between being guided by a map and road signs and relying entirely on a satnav. We don't appear to make mental notes of landmarks and other visual references in the way we used to, a sort of mental breadcrumb trail.

Whether this will turn out to be a serious issue in time remains to be seen. There are occasional reports of people heading off into mountain ranges wholly unprepared and with only a smartphone to guide them but in reality a satnav has allowed many to venture further with confidence and it has to be safer that trying to glance at a paper map on the passenger seat or the inevitable row with your nearest and dearest/navigator!

News: Driver Warned By Police For Satnav Stupidity

pocketgpsworld.com
Greater Manchester Police stopped a driver on the M56 and gave him 'words of advice' after they observed him driving with a satnav stuck to the windscreen directly in front of him.

A Police spokesman said: "This vehicle was stopped and the driver given advice regarding the placement of his sat nav. This was clearly obstructing his view and directly in his line of sight, you must have a full clear view of the road and traffic ahead, obstructing this is an offence. There were two child passengers in the car which led us to take immediate action and having been given advice moved the sat nav to a more appropriate place and was issued with a traffic offence report (TOR) before being allowed to continue his journey."

Sadly this isn't as uncommon as you may think, I have personally seen drivers with their satnav in the exact same position a number of times and you have to wonder what the heck they were thinking, or not thinking perhaps.

News: Oops, Who Forgot To Run Software Update On Their Boeings?

pocketgpsworld.com
The GPS data rollover bug seems to have passed with relatively few hardline grabbing issues but that's not to say that everyone survived unscathed.

There were a number of reports of the GPS Navigation Systems on various Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft being affected. At least one KLM 777 flight and a large number of China Airlines 777 and 787 aircraft were grounded due to the issues whilst technicians updated the software. A Shanghai Airlines 787 was also reportedly affected.

In all the reported cases so far, the GPS systems were supplied by Honeywell. They issued a service update on the issue but it appears to state that the systems would not be impacted by the date rollover so someone is going to be in trouble!

It would seem the destruction of 75% of speed cameras in France may have backfired on the protesters that wrecked them.

The French government is taking the opportunity to replace them with far more efficient devices that look as if they'll catch a whole lot more drivers than they could ever do so before.
