National Parks (1:25k AND 1:50k) National Trails (1:25k AND 1:50k) Regions (1:50k) Counties (1:25k or 1:50k)
Which map scale is best for me?To gain the most from the great outdoors, make sure you get the right map for your activity.
Walking / Hiking: - 1:25,000 scale Explorer map. Especially when hiking it is important to know the terrain you are entering, a 1:25,000 scale allows you to plan your route as safely and accurately as possible. Mountain Biking: - 1:25,000 scale Explorer map. Although a 1:50,000 should be accurate enough. If you are planning to go on particularly rough and potentially dangerous terrain, we would recommend you use the 1:25,000 for optimum safety and accuracy. Family Cycle Riding: - 1:50,000 scale Landranger map would be sufficiently detailed for a family bike ride as it shows all the roads, country lanes and byways that are ideal for family days out.

This is a very tidy unit, and although I haven't been out using it in anger as yet, I am pretty dissapointed that I went for the 'Plus' option. Read morePublished on 14 Aug 2009 by Mr. Peter Clark
