The charity BRAKE offer the following advice in their 'Driven to Distraction' leaflet
“ADVICE FOR DRIVERS: STAY FOCUSED
Many modern vehicles come equipped with technology aimed at making the driver safer or more comfortable. However, some in-vehicle technology can pose a dangerous distraction.
If you use a sat-nav, programme it before starting your journey and never while driving. Fiddling with the sat-nav will take your eyes and mind off the road with potentially lethal consequences.
Don’t rely on your sat-nav to notify you of problems ahead – stay alert.
Remember, a sat-nav is there to help you keep focused on driving rather than worry about directions, but it's not there to make all the decisions for you. You still need to look at signs, particularly those warning of hazards or speed limits, and watch for people and hazards”.
