Euro sat-nav

Taxpayers 'should build Galileo'

Can't help thinking such hi-tech systems overlook the inestimable value of local knowledge...

Van drivers who deliver my supermarket grocery orders have got lost in my village because their sat-nav displays no street record of the cul-de-sac where I live.

Instead of spending four billion euros to launch yet more space junk, wouldn't a map reading training-course for couriers and haulage contractors work out a bit cheaper?
