Having used an earlier version I know the level of detail across France is perfect for navigation of even small roads, although not so much for smaller roads inside towns/cities. If you want more than a map book with radar notifications the tourist information is sparse.
My previous version had a paper spine - the downside of this version is that there are actual (small) gaps in the maps between pages.
Much better than cheaper equivalents in quality of finish, although a somewhat plastic feel/look. Good value. Plenty of pockets which was something I wanted. The intermediate zipped pocket is big enough to take my widescreen tablet when I want to use the main part for other paperwork etc.
