Scientists studying what satnavs do to the brain have found that people using them effectively switch off parts of the brain that would otherwise be utilized to simulate different routes and boost navigational skills.The researchers said constant use of satnavs would probably have longer-term limiting effects, making users less able to learn and navigate a city's street network unaided."Satnavs clearly have their uses and their limitations".As an extension of the research, the scientists also analyzed the street networks of major cities around the world to visualize how easy they may be to navigate.
