It finally arrived.
I now have one of those SatNav things.
It came in a little box with damn all instructions except how to switch it on.
I switched it on.
It switched itself off again, because the battery was low.
I can see we are going to have a beautiful relationship.
I messed around with a couple of cables that came with it. One was for a car cigarette lighter socket, so I threw that out. The other one seemed to fit my computer so I plugged it in.
SatNav lit up but didn’t do anything. Apparently I’m just charging it. I left it to charge.
In the meantime, I found their web site. It had a manual, so I printed that off. All sixty something pages. But the fucking printer didn’t resize the pages so now I have little squares of printing in the middle of big blank pages. I’m not going to bother printing it off again.
Later, I decided to try it out, as I had to go to the village anyway.
That’s when I discovered what the cigarette lighter cable was for, so I had to fish it out of the bin and clean last night’s curry off it.
I programmed it to the best of my abilities.
Yer Wan was quite pleasant about the trip. She didn’t have that much to say, but it’s not that complicated anyway.
It didn’t find me a decent parking space though.
Useless heap of shit.
