Reliance on Satnavs vs Traffic Signing

Does anyone know of any fairly up to date research on satnav use? Ideally, we would like to know what % of drivers going to an unfamiliar destination would rely on their satnav rather than a map and traffic signing?

Reliance on Satnavs vs Traffic Signing

I'd be interested in this as I have identified a number of rural crossroads where we have had a number of very serious including fatal collisions due to what appears to be Satnav errors.

I have recently posed this question to Matt Butler who is part of the RACF's project regarding establishing a Road Collision investigation branch similar to air, rail and marine investigation.
