5.0 out of 5 stars From a Retired Trucker, Rand McNally is the Best 24 April 2011
By Rich K - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rand McNally Road Atlas (Rand Mcnally Road Atlas: United States, Canada, Mexico) (Paperback)

First let me say this is April 2011 and I am trying to figure out how this could possibly be an up to date 2012 map. By the time it's 2012 everything in here will be nearly a year old. It's not just Rand McNally, all the map companies do it. Obviously a marketing ploy to get it out there before the summer driving season. Go figure, just some food for thought.

If you do decide to buy this Rand McNally map I strongly suggest you read the map legends on the back of the front cover page. They will show you the symbols that represent rest areas, type of roads, state parks ,parking areas, the size of towns, and cities, plus many more items that have to be abbreviated ,since they would not fit on the Map in full size. This map is large " 15 in. By 10 1/2 in, " but necessary to fit everything in so it is legible. I would not recommend the mid size map, it's lacking in detail and is difficult to read.

Before retiring I was an over the road trucker for over twenty years, driving in excess of one hundred twenty thousand miles a year from coast to coast and Canada. I have probably tried every road atlas out there at one time or another, but always came back to Rand McNally.

Most people forget not to long ago there where no GPS devices to get you from point A to point B. Most of my trucking career was spent without a GPS, and I had to depend on a good Road Atlas to get me to where I was going. If you think you had problems getting lost in a car, try doing it in a 70 foot long tractor trailer. You just cant stop anywhere to reevaluate your directions or make a U turn on a 2 lane road. Consequently you need an easy to read, accurate Road Atlas at your side so you get it right the first time.

Evidently some people think every small town or sub division should be on this map, get real there is only so much space on there to fit everything before it gets overcrowded and the whole map is totally illegible. Best to get a state or local street map for a small town or city coverage. Be prepared before you start your trip.

Each year there are thousands of new upgrades to keep up with all the new road construction that's going on out there. If you need an accurate Atlas for directions, it might be a good idea to get a new Atlas yearly. Even if you have a GPS as I do, they are not perfect. Best to buy an Atlas as a backup, I did.

Rand McNally makes a special truckers version of this Atlas with truck information such as truck routes, overpass heights, weight limits, etc. etc. Since retiring I use this version which is the same, without the trucking information.

Another item that might be helpful if you travel a lot is the Travel Distance Finder Distomap
for easily checking the distance from city to city. It's not expensive, very sturdy and never needs to be replaced until it wears out.

I personally know the overwhelming majority of truckers including myself use the Rand McNally Road Atlas for good reason, its the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best general road atlas 1 July 2011
By Sitting in Seattle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've tried several road atlases over the years but always keep coming back to Rand McNally. Their atlases are simply the easiest to read, most complete and informative, and up to date. I'm happy to say that the 2012 edition is even clearer and printed better than the 2009 edition I'm replacing: the fonts and road lines are just slightly sharper and that makes an excellent atlas even better.

Some folks may wonder whether an atlas is necessary alongside a GPS. Absolutely, it is. Nothing beats having the ability to see a large area in high detail, and to be able to consider last-minute changes and detours along a route, which are essentially impossible with a GPS.

While I'm driving, my wife routinely looks at the atlas to consider other routes, to find out what mountains are off in the distance, where a certain road goes, how far is it to some other place off the main path, and so forth -- a lot of entertainment and learning in addition to the basic map functions.

In summary: if you don't have a road atlas and need a national atlas, get this one. If you have one more than a couple of years old, strongly consider it. (And BTW, you might also want to consider "The Next Exit" book, which I just tried and will review soon.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Atlas Gone Bad 4 July 2011
By kenneth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used a Rand McNally Road Atlas for years. Roads have changed so it was time to buy a new one. Well, I bought this one. Take my advice. Keep your old one. This is a really inferior atlas compared to those of just 10 years ago or so. The roads are not well marked. On the map, where roads converge, it's hard to read this. And, get this. A small town cannot be found in the index! Don't take my word for it. Look in the index under your state and try and find a small town. It won't be there. And here's the ridiculous part -- if you know where that small town is on the map, you'll probably find it. Rand McNally just didn't bother listing all the towns on their maps in the index. Keep your old one. Maybe Rand McNally will work out the kinks and create a newer model (like those of old).
But, I wish I hadn't bought this pitiful product.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love these maps! 10 Dec 2011
By Steven A. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Each year, I eagerly anticipate the publication of the new Rand McNally Road Atlas. No different this year! Each year, new add ons come about. Once upon a time, this was just a print only atlas. Now, one can get information on one's cell phone; one can go to a web site; etc. This map keeps up with technology!

But what I really like is using this as a tool for planning trips or for simply imagining trips. Since I was a kid, I enjoyed picking up the atlas and thinking: "How would I get to ---?" It was great fun to trace out a route to places all over my home state (Illinois) or the country.

I use MapQuest, but I still prefer mapping out drives with my trusty Rand McNally Atlas if the trip is pretty straightforward.

I live in Pennsylvania now. I use the annual update to figure out how to get from, say, Hershey to Myerstown. The mileage indicators are helpful to figure out the time between different places.

In this high tech era, it might seem quaint to enjoy the use of an old-fashioned atlas. But Rand McNally has kept up and has support mechanisms--such as its web site.

Anyhow, I'm still a fan after too many decades of this estimable resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid 17 Jun 2011

I've had a Rand McNally before and for my third trip to the States I purchased another one this year. Back in Europe we've only got the 2011 version, so I was glad I could order the 2012 edition on Amazon.
The Rand McNally Road Atlas is a great roadbook, just get in the car and drive!
Big maps with driving distances and driving time, with detailed parts of cities. One of the best things are the scenic routes, highlighted with little green dots so you know the prettiest roads to drive.

I've chosen this one and not the one with extra cover, because the next time I'll use it, there's going to be an new version, so it wasn't necessary for me. Just a great roadbook.
