SatNav in Ireland; a cautionary tale or three...

Jump to last reply

Good morning from the windy mountains.
A news item reminded me of this. Apparently there has been chaos on the Ring of Kerry as drivers of heavy lorries etc have been relying on SatNav, which of course does not know that there is a one way sytem in operation since the 1880s, that coaches all go anticlockwise, ditto heavy vehicles as in so many places two cannot pass each other. Indeed the raod from Sneem to Moll's Gap is off limit to heavy lorries which have to go from Killarney onwards via Kenmare and then to Sneem. There have been several incidents of them getting stuck in eg the narrow tunnel on that road.
It reminded me of two other incidents; of a car full of Japanese tourists two winters ago using SatNav and it leading them along a road badly blocked by snow. Thankfully they had a mobile phone as they had to be rescued by Mountain Rescue Teams.
Then there was the time I was moving house and using a very experienced Man with a Van. I lived then as now in mountainous land albeit with a good road. When he did not arrive on time I called him and he had been driving around the area two hours as his SatNav told him there was no house etc.
I stood in the road and guided him in on the phone; thankfully it was still dark so I could see his lights... coming and going, red then white.."Please take care round the next bend as I am standing in the middle of the road.."
Ireland is somewhat unpredictable road wise which is a part of the charm, and lacking often in signposts and a good map is truly all that you need.... and of course stopping to ask directions eg oh there is no sign as we ran out of money , which jaja will remember well!
