Bye-bye Road Atlas !

Silicon.com reports the latest findings from analysts Canalys, who note that sales of GPS navigation systems (Satnavs) have again grown over 100% in the past year, with Tom Tom and Garmin the major players.

Doubling market share soon moves a market, so the road atlas may soon go the same way as the eight track stereo – I’m still to be convinced about smart phones as navigation devices, although clearly off-board navigation and the required wireless capability will be important over the next couple of years, the form factor is still all wrong.

The big deal will be the first sub £100, €100, $100 device..the race is on!
