Well, with all them electronic thingies in the cockpit nowadays, it’s good to also have a good old fashioned compass to rely on.
And call me old fashioned, but I am probably one of the last few people who doesn’t have a GPS in his car. I still prefer the good old road map, combined with decent “flight planning” when I’m going somewhere new. I also don’t have a laptop and my cell phone doesn’t have a camera. If you’re a salesman on the road or something, a GPS can probably make your life a lot easier… but I guess I’ll end up being one of the old geezers complaining about the technological bells and whistles of the youth. Hm, to the 15 year olds I probably already am!
