5.0 out of 5 stars Travel Map
A very good map of the island not quite up todate as new roads are being made. I like it, as I am a keen cyclist, compare to the maps given by hotels or hire cars companies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not useful
We tried to use this map last week. We decided that it was just not accurate and stopped using it.

The worst example is the following. There is a road from Chamouny to the Plaine Champagne - the B89 - which is a tourist highlight in other books. This map does not show this road at all. Worse - it shows the B89 heading in a completely different direction -...

This review is from: Mauritius (Globetrotter Travel Map) (Map)
We tried to use this map last week. We decided that it was just not accurate and stopped using it.

The worst example is the following. There is a road from Chamouny to the Plaine Champagne - the B89 - which is a tourist highlight in other books. This map does not show this road at all. Worse - it shows the B89 heading in a completely different direction - curving from Chamouny back to Surinam. The road drawn on the map literally does not exist, and the actual main road is just not on the map at all. It's not just a bit wrong or me being pedantic, and 'not accurate' is putting it mildly - what is drawn really is just something entirely different.

In fairness having got back and checked a few other maps I can see maybe how this happened - Google shows both the current road (which they label B89 becoming the B102 to the Plaine Champagne) AND the B89 then turning off and heading back to Surinam. The road back to Surinam is now not there, so maybe if you take an out of date map and then drop the 'minor' B102 you get this completely confusing map.

I think the handful of problems we found probably can be explained by this map being (a) significantly out of date and (b) too approximate with too many details and 'minor' roads dropped.

The upshot is though - this map is not useful. Instead, we used the map that came with the Marco Polo guide - this was detailed and matched reality, as far as we could tell.

If you want to drive in Mauritius (where road sign directions are not the best) then this is the map. Highly detailed and accurate.
