My nephew Ian used a Satnav plugged into the fag lighter of his car and within three minutes had the entire route plan for his journey from Oxford to somewhere in remote Slovenia.

And to think that in my lifetime, I had to navigate ships, ( with only partial accuracy,) across the oceans using a vernier sextant.

Now that's ancient!
