This review is from: France 2013 (Michelin tourist & motoring atlas - A4 spiral) (Michelin Tourist and Motoring Atlases) (Spiral-bound)
I bought this book of maps to replace the one which I have had for years(decades). It had a lot to live up to and having seen some critical reviews I was prepared to not be impressed. Having use the new map to navigate down through France on the smaller roads through tiny villages, as we like to do, and return on the Nation Routes I gave it a good test.
The small pages and spiral binding were a benefit as the map does not sprawl over your lap and beyond. The detail is as good as the old style. Thinner paper, while seeming fragile, keeps the weight down. Extra route planning pages were very helpful with the smaller amount on each map page. I think there were also extra city maps too. The one thing I did to the book which I think would be an improvement was to make an extra fold about 1 cm from the fold on the card cover, front and back. This I used as a place holder which also protected the pages. All in all a good buy.
