This is the latest biannual edition of Philip's behemoth of a road atlas. Unlike most other road atlases they don't put the year on the cover - if you're tempted to buy this in the high street (where the old one can still be found) make sure it's the one coloured grey/yellow with the blue strip at the top, and the map extract of Newbury.

Added features and improvements on the last edition:-

The best improvement is an increase, to 70, in the number of large scale inner city plans, and the introduction of "approaches" maps for 12 of the country's largest cities (13 actually, as Leeds and Bradford share one). Greater London is allocated eight pages.

By eliminating the margins round the map pages they have been able to reduce the dimensions of the book by 1.5 inches. This, together with a stiffer front cover for the traditional bound edition of the book, means that it is more manageable for the navigator (there is a spiral-bound version; this does not have the stiffer cover and is therefore still a bit unwieldy).

Speed camera sites. These are shown by speed limit signs, showing the relevant speed currently applicable on the stretch of road. This is better than the usual camera symbol which, being black, tended to compromise the clarity of the map in congested urban areas. There is also a list of sites at the front of the book. As always, such information can go out of date very quickly, so don't rely on it alone. The sites are not shown on the large scale inner city and approaches maps.

On the map pages themselves, the colours used are slightly darker this time. This does mean that it is less easy to see the stretches of trunk and A roads which are dual carriageways (shown by a black line in the middle) but it does make B roads more visible.

Can't be bettered for detail really or you'll be using OS 1/50,000 Landranger map next. Use a 4 miles to the inch standard road atlas (for a couple of quid ) to get to the area you want as much easier to handle and you can throw it around the car, then change to this when you get there (1.5 miles to the inch) just makes it much more interesting and fun close up. I dare you to get lost!

Glorious maps! You geta great overview of the county you are travelling through. Large maps with a grate scale. Easy to spot features such as parking places, picnic sites and view points. Alternative routes are seen at a glance. No tapping into a tiny screen. Distances are easily estimated with a distance scale in miles and kilometers on every page. There are very good overlaps when the page is turned. Excellent town centre maps are provided for all the major cities. Ferry information is also provided.

As a visitor to the UK, touring for a couple of weeks by car, I wanted an Atlas to suppliment the GPS - for planning purposes, spotting places of interest, for an after trip reference etc.

This was my choice after looking at the Atlas's available, and an excellent choice it was too!

Clear, full of detail and easy to use, it really is great - and I cannot really recommend it enough!

The paperback binding is also strong and durable,and the book physically easy to use.
