So long as you didn't disappear up your own exhaust pipe

Mine too! I think that each time we went (to see my mother) the road had been altered. The roads were constantly 'under construction' - or seem to be. So I up-dated the sat-nav before we went, but that did not stop the sat-nav misbehaving .

Ditto.

There is a road scheme which involves traffic being routed via a diversion. The Sat Nav directs you through Bristol city centre, but if you are not going to Bristol it is possible to avoid the road scheme in the city centre and take the road which goes past the airport. Bath is not a bad place to visit, but parking is hard to find.

We got totally lost in Bristol on our way to Somerset. I was forced to ask for directions in a supermarket car park. I heard someone say "What a stupid man losing his way in Bristol!".
