Topic - Is the use of map and compass on the hills obsolete?

PopShot on 13 Jun 2013
With recent leaps forward in GPS technology is the use of map and compass as navigation tools on the hill obsolete? I recently purchased a Memory Map GPS which displays full colour OS maps with my position displayed in real time. Very affordably priced and user-friendly too. Is the modern role of the map and compass as a back-up only or does anyone still use it as a primary navigation tool?
