I haven't used any route planner for over 4 years now, but my sat nav went crazy the other day (or all the satellites were on strike) and I had no choice but to use a Route planner to get me and the family to a holiday cottage we'd booked (some way off the beaten track!). I'd used AA years ago so I thought I'd give it another go and it was still as good as it used to be. The direction were thorough and very detailed. I don't know what we'd have do if we had gone wrong, but luckily we didn't and the map reading arguments of old were avoided.
I still prefer the sat nav as plan A (for the safety net it gives you if things go wrong or you fancy making a detour), but it's good to know in the modern world we can still get along without them!
