Satellite-navigation (sat-nav)

An on-board navigation system using satellite communication that is accurate to within a few metres.

By entering a required destination in the system, the sat-nav works out the best way to get there and provides both visual (maps and diagrams on the car’s information screen) and audible (voice instructions via the sound system) directions to guide you there.
