3.0 out of 5 stars Not so good 19 Aug 2010
By CliveP
Verified Purchase
We bought this map to replace a Road Editions one we have used for several years. The scale is only slightly smaller than the Road Editions one but it is not so clear and easy to use. Some of the place names are poorly positioned on top of roads or other features and can be difficult to find. In addition countour lines are not so clear as on our old one. If you need a waterproof/tear proof map this is for you but if you want an easy to read and use one go for Road Editions

2.0 out of 5 stars Insufficient detail 31 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
A map that is nicely presented and competitively priced but is woefully inadequate for the task. Cretan roads are several categories below Western European equivalents, and so the map represents that there are roads where only cart-tracks exist. The map seems to show roads that exist only as footpaths, and the scale of the map is insufficient to show the level of detail required for navigating in the countryside. We hardly used this map after the first day except for route planning, and relied on a local map at a larger scale. Don't buy this - purchase a larger scale map locally on arrival - they are widely available and very cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mapping 1 Jun 2010
Good clear mapping at a good scale for motoring on an nearly indestructible backing. Ordnance Survey take note!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful map. 2 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
Works well with the Rough guide book. More detailed, maps are produced by Anavasi (bought from Amazon, or direct from Athens if you wish to have the most up-to-date versions) - they are 1cm to the kilometer, as opposed to this one being 1cm to 1.4km. The Anavasi maps are like the old half-inch touring maps that used to be popular in the UK (especially with cyclists). You could miss this one out, but having bought both, I'm finding they are both useful. They give slightly different views from each other when it comes to route-finding. Both maps are printed on plastic paper, but this one covers the whole of Crete, while the Anavasi ones require buying three for coverage of the whole island.

useful map with excellant level of detail shoing paces to visit etc. map was also tear and shower proof and it certain survived the trip with being folded and unfolded a number of times which it needed to be as it was large when full unfolded but this made it very easy to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yep excellent 19 July 2012
By M
Verified Purchase
Yep excellent. We used this a lot on holiday but it is law in Crete that they have to supply a map with every hire car. We hired two cars during our time there so now have three maps!
To be fair this is the best one for detail and the sites and it sort of works with the Rough Guide.
It's not really good enough to use for walking but we never found anything quiet like OS maps there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rough Guide Map Crete 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase
If you are planning a walking or cycling trip these maps are useless.
The road to Lasithi was totally different to the map and yet it was an old road.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good map with waterproof covering 11 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
The map was just as promised. IT has a waterproof and crease resistant covering and the layout should be large enoughto identify all the roads in the Crete interior when we visit

A really good map and it's plastic covered so I won't tear it or spill things on it. Have already worked out our route to the villa from the airport with it.
