Queensferry Crossing – Satnav fail!

I am lucky to have a built-in satnav (in my car, not in my body – now there’s a thought…) Very useful. Very modern. Top of the range, probably. Yesterday I upgraded it online. Downloading the latest maps (the whole of Europe, not just the UK, which is all I wanted) took over six hours. Today I installed the upgrade in my car. That took another hour while the mass of data transferred itself from memory stick to my satnav.

Apparent change of subject…

The Queensferry Crossing, the amazing new bridge across the Firth of Forth (in Scotland, for my non-UK readers) was opened officially in August 2017, having been in use, unofficially, for some time before that. So why, I wonder, does my recent satnav map upgrade, undertaken 14 months later, not show the bridge? Strangers to the region might well wonder why their vehicle suddenly appears to be travelling over water, well to the west of the old Forth Road Bridge. Never fear, folks. Your car is not amphibious. It’s simply the tardiness of your satnav provider.
