The NCDC units were crap anyway, in my view.
You're entitled to that view. However wrong it is.
 
CD would constantly be spat out in morning, due to condensation the the disc. The maps were very old, to the verge of being pointless. They donít take full postcode, often struggled with industrial estates or where no traditional road/number.
So the system you have done *nothing* to for 17yrs occasionally spits a disk out?  I'd wager you'd had at least 10 phones in that time.  So I know which is the most trouble free ;)

Numbers and Roads are down to the making provider, of which all satnav manufacturers use 2 in the UK, TomTom/Teleatlas and Here/Navteq.  Its these companies that provide the road names and numbers.  They also provide the postcodes, with varying levels of accuracy.  Personally, I never use the postcodes, as its a great way to get to the wrong town.


Waze on the other hand, start app, says are you going home? Tap go and boom, multiple options based on live traffic data and dynamic routing updating as you go, based on traffic. Not once has it given me issues in position/routing.
I've used Waze, Goople Maps, and most other online services, and TomTom (both phones and standalone), Garmin, and all that tosh. They are universally useless.  Even on an iPhone X and a Galaxy S8 in small American towns (far more open than UK towns).  I can easily see why people drive the wrong way up motorways with these stupid devices, that should be banned IMHO.

Add in heat reflective screens, and they are truly lethal (in the hands of millennials and others born after common sense died).

Kids mobilised for political gain?. You couldnt make it up. I remember school as a place of learning not protests.

We did have mock elections at senior school with Harvey Postlethwaite getting in on the Tory ticket. He went on to become an MP. Most kids voted how their mates voted not for principles

Although i agree that this sounds like a classic door solenoid faliure....The solenoid Being fitted by ron is one which had a new microswitch fitted by me, done as per kevin woods guide and ive done a few of these now for members on here and had nil fail till now.

The only thing i can think is if you cannot find any other fault..IE  door loom...Then get the one you removed from the car and get it posted to me.

If we'd set up a Guantanamo style penal colony on South Georgia and legislated that anyone who went off to fight for an unfriendly force and then tried to come back to Blighty would automatically do a 15 year stretch down there, no ifs, no buts, no parole or time off for good behaviour, I think that the numbers who went off to fight for ISIS would have been in the tens rather than the hundreds.  ;)

In fact we should do it anyway for other undesirables!  :y 

Can you imagine the squeals from the Guardianistas!  ;D

Imo it is despicable for children to be dragged into politics. One teacher who supports the action said during his verbal dysentery like ramble today, that if any kids leave school and vote Tory, then teachers have failed in their duty.
It looks like it became a protest against climate change, Brexit and Trump.
I would like to see any staff who supported this sacked and banned from schools for life, but meanwhile any school who employs staff who supported it, should be laughed at if they ever try to fine or prosecute parents who take their kids out of school for any reason.
Otherwise, the state has now officially taken power of parenting away from parents and replaced it with state thought control.
This, by the way is what usually happens in totalitarian Socialist societies.
Over to you STEMO.  :)

You must be psychic as we arent on the register despite previously being on it. Oh joy of joy dealing with bureaucrats. Spanisg general election will give us a flavour of what is to come in European elections in May. Might see a swing to the right as the Labour Sanchez has just ignored the people. Sound familiar........

It is peaceful. Walked the dog this morning and a guy rolled up and parked on double yellows outside the Post Office. Didnt you see the yellow lines I asked in jest. Dont apply here. Then a council truck polled up. Doors open, engine running while rhey went in for their sandwiches and Sun newspaper.

The Harbour bar welcomes well behaved dogs and does a decent bacon sandwich and a real coffee for a whopping £3.
