Now I have a sat-nav that tells me to "bear right" into oncoming traffic at a junction.

I avail of 'Google Maps'. In the past I have used a 'TomTom Sat Nav'.
I still possess an old 'AA' road atlas which is certainly not in the best condition!
I am 68 in November but using modern technology does not faze me one iota.

It had a name that popped up a lot of times with a phone number which I rang and explained I had found her friends diary which she popped round and collected.

What was their cheese like?

Both have a place still which is why it's best to be skilled using both.

Each have advantages and disadvantages so it levels itself out really.

The issue is society and younger generations have no other skills they can't do much without the modern tech which is not a good place to be plus we have become to reliant on it.
