Getting there...
I’m sure you’re all familiar with sod’s law, that unwritten collection of commandments created with the sole intention of sapping the fun out of the most innocuous of tasks. It strikes at the slightest sniff of an opportunity but seemingly never more so than when a family climb into the car and point it in the direction of somewhere they’ve never been before.

We’ve all been there I’m sure, town names that mockingly lie beneath the staples of your atlas, critical junctions that fall right on the very edge of the page and blazing rows over whether the left turn you needed is the one just coming into view of or the one slowly fading away in your rear view mirror.

Fuelled by falling prices and improving software there’s a revolution under way which, if it has its way, will relegate the paper map to the annals of history, and it seems every company has a stake to claim. Satellite Navigation is well and truly this year’s must-have motoring accessory.

In a market dominated by big brands and slowly becoming saturated as everyone tries to take a slice of the revenue I was naturally a little sceptical to hear that Fujitsu Siemens had entered the fray. To their credit though they aren't serving up just another generic, SiRF Star equipped box with nothing new on offer, they are heralding the new Pocket LOOX N100 as "Lightest and smallest multifunction PNA on the market.". A bold claim but one that might impact on usability perhaps?
