Satnav breadcrumbs tech ensures drivers who venture off-road can easily find their way back again

Breadcrumbs might not have been the best way for Hansel and Gretel to retrace their steps (spoiler alert: stones work much better). But they are perfect for enabling drivers to find their way back after venturing off-road.

When travelling cross-country, landmarks and track-markings can be difficult to distinguish, and regular satnavs may have limitations. But help is at hand. The new Ford Ranger Raptor drops a virtual pin every second so that drivers can more easily return to their starting point.

"Whether it's for work or for sheer adventure, the new Raptor loves being let loose off-road," said Leo Roeks, Director, Ford Performance. "Breadcrumb navigation is a simple but effective way to help drivers know exactly how to retrace their route no matter where they are."

The Ford Ranger is Europe's most popular pickup, with more than 26,700 sold in the first half of 2019. *Developed by Ford Performance, the new Ranger Raptor is designed to overcome the most challenging off-road terrains in the world. Powered by a Bi-turbo version of Ford's 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine and with a race-bred suspension featuring FOX shock absorbers, the Ranger Raptor is now on sale across Europe.
