2.0 out of 5 stars excellent information, but map quality is not good and navigation of maps is poor., 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Greece (Travel Guide) (Kindle Edition)
I bought the Lonely Planet guide to Greece on my Kindle. the maps do not work very well and in the introduction it gives a link to www.medialonelyplanet/ebookmaps and suggest that one can download a pdf map of better quality. However when you click on files in the list on a Kindle, an error message states that only files with extension .azw, .prc,.mobi and . txt can be downloaded to a Kindle.
The Lonely planet guide also states that one can download and print all the maps from this website, however this cannot be done on a Kindle and there is no access from a PC.
I tried to access the list of pdf's on the website using a PC, but they do not show up anywhere and a search on 'ebookmaps' produces no results at all. so the promise stated in the Kindle that maps can be downloaded from the LonelyPlanet website to improve coverage version of this guide, does not appear to be really genuine.
