London cab drivers must undertake a test on the city’s streets before they can work, but Sat-Nav could make that knowledge unnecessary…. Imagine for a moment that you have thumbed a ride in one of London’s iconic black cabs. “Where to, guv?” he asks, in typical cockney-twang. You tell him. “No problem – let me just enter that into my sat-nav…” It sounds unnatural, almost deceitful, that any self-respecting London cabbie would ever utter those words.
