30-second news: the end of the aftermarket sat-nav

High street store John Lewis has announced plans to remove sat-navs from its shelves because of decreasing demand from customers.

The firm has released its latest annual retail report this morning, reporting that sat navs were the latest gadget to be left behind by customers. It follows last year’s abandoned item, the selfie stick.

The company said built-in sat navs and the rise of mobile phone navigation apps has led to a drop in sales of the conventional aftermarket sat nav. Apps such as Waze provide real-time traffic information provided by other road users.
