'First ever built-in sat nav' from 1930

1 post in this topic

You might think that in-car map readers are a recent invention - given that you need satellite navigation technology to make them work.

The Iter Avto, which used a map on a scroll, is believed to be the first onboard direction guide.

Just like the modern devices such as a Tom Tom or Garmin, the device was positioned on the dashboard of a car - and came with a set of paper maps.
