2.0 out of 5 stars It's teeny-weeny! 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase
When I read 'Road Atlas' I think of something at least A4, more like A3. My mistake for not checking the specs. I see some other atlases of the same size are helpfully titled 'Mini-Atlas' or 'Glovebox Atlas'. This is what this edition is. It is tiny. Each page is A5, with a 17mm spiral binding separating adjacent pages. As the binding is the same size used on the biggest atlases, it takes up a disproportionate amount of a pair of pages.

The scale is 1cm to 10kms - that's 1:1,000,000. My A4 atlas for the whole of Europe [northern-most point of Norway to Gibraltar and W.Turkey to Ireland] is the same scale.

Maps have always been part of my working life. I've always been a fan of Philip's maps. They're clearly printed, with white backgrounds everywhere except green patches for national parks or similar. This atlas has this design, so, for all that the scale is tiny, it is as legible as any mapping at this scale is ever going to be. The problem, at this scale is, of course, detail. The area of Holland bounded by Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Apeldoorn, Arnhem has so much m/way that the mapping looks like a snake-pit of blue snakes. Other roads and place names are difficult to make out amongst a great spaghetti of m/ways. I defy anyone to use this atlas for local routing in this area. Other areas suffer the same problem. The m/way system centred on Dusseldorf is another blue snake-pit.

Philips do the same atlas at 1:250,000. This is the scale you need for a sensible amount of detail and legibility and the ability to navigate down to the most local level.

I suppose this atlas would be OK for back-packing or cycling. It will get you around the principle routes and centres of the three countries but anyone with more space to carry a map book would be well advised to avoid this edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for overview and direction-finding... 26 Jun 2014

If the SatNav is good for the last half-mile, this is good for the first look at planning a route. Fits in my tankbag map pocket, and is there as a reassuring backup. Can't beat old tech!

1.0 out of 5 stars Scale too small. 17 May 2014
By Dandi g

Convenient size and good being spiral bound but useless as a road map unless you just want it to see a rough route from A to B. Everything is far to small and you can't see the motorway junctions.

2.0 out of 5 stars Journey fromm Calais to Krefeld 23 Sep 2013

Expected more detail spread over more pages, feels rather small and difficult for co-driver to read on certain road surfaces and very complicated numbering on main roads
