(STUDYFINDS) — Would you be able to navigate your way around a city by paper map should your smartphone break? Such a prospect may be frightfully daunting for millennials. A new survey finds just 18% feel “very confident” in their ability to read a traditional map, compared to nearly half of middle-aged adults.
What’s worse, 15% of millennials — about one in seven — say they’ve never even tried reading a paper map. That means millions of young adults may end up completely lost without a working digital device.
