Using Google Maps on the 1927 pattern

How did people of the past go on unfamiliar roads in times when there was no GPS navigation and Google Maps? They had to be creative. For example, in 1927, in the UK, such wristbands Plus Four Wristlet Route went on sale, which were sold with a set of cards. Cards could be purchased and self-inserted into the bracelet.

In the 1930s, more sophisticated devices appeared in which a paper map was fixed under glass in a mechanical navigator near the toolbar.

We now have Google Maps. But some still feel nostalgia for the good old analog devices and came up with this combination : the route is made through Google Maps, and then step-by-step instructions are printed on a long roll of paper and embedded in a wrist bracelet of the 1920s sample.
