Product Description

A detailed, self-contained colour road map of Great Britain with a searchable gazetteer of place names and postal districts. Once installed it does not require an Internet connection and it does not use GPS. Uses Ordnance Survey maps and data and supports 5 zoom levels down to B road level together with finger-drag pan.

Covers England, Wales and Scotland including the Orkneys, Shetlands, Western Isles, Isles of Scilly and Isle of Man but excludes Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands.

It uses Ordnance Survey maps and data and includes an easy-to-search gazetteer listing over 22,000 GB place names and nearly 3,000 postal districts that takes you directly to a detailed map. A postal district is the first half of a postcode, for example, B1, TD1 or NW10.

Easy, touch-screen, map selection. Panning across maps is supported by simple finger drag. The top zoom level is a Great Britain map and there are four zoom levels down to B road level. At maximum zoom in, the scale is approximately 2.5 miles to 1 inch of screen. Please refer to the screen shots to see the level of detail.

Works anywhere, without any Internet connection. As it’s self-contained, it requires at least 49MB of free storage space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent application 11 Mar 2013

I have now taken my old paper atlas out the back of my car after 20 years. I always have the Kindle with me so now I have clear zoomable maps at my finger tips. Good and easy to use. Remember it is a road map, no contours etc ...

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor scale for today 22 Jan 2013
By George
Verified Purchase
I tend to be an avid map reader and saw this advertised on my Kindle. I thought it would be a good purchase to keep in the car. Unfortunately, compared to physical maps and things like sat nav it's usefulness is limited. It basically does not zoom in enough making fine directions difficult.

This is very useful as another reviewer said it does away with a paper road atlas and has a search facility that takes you directly to area of country that you want and puts a red marker onto your required destination

I don't find it all that easy.
It goes from a totally unreadable full map of Britain to isolated areas making it difficult to plan a journey.
Was hoping for better.

1.0 out of 5 stars road map book is better
Bought with great expectation, but this is totally useless, DON'T BUY if you know what's good for you. A road map/atlas is much better.

Sorry to say that this is only as good as the paper versions available from your local service station - I thought it would drill down to street level - it doesn't.
