Very pretty, but not much practical use
on 11 March 2002
If you expected this to be a substitute for your Landranger or Explorer maps, think again.
It's okay for motorists I suppose, and quite easy to use and navigate around, but for walkers it is useless. The 100 extracts at 1:25000 cover such miniscule areas, that you wonder why they bothered.
For instance, what if you wanted to use the maps to do a walk in the Yorkshire Dales; the Three Peaks say? Er, no. 'Fraid not.
It would have been nice to be able to print out the relevant bits of an Explorer map and take them instead of folding the real thing into some new contortion, but this CDRom simply isn't suitable.
Not really sure who would benefit from it. Even motorists won't unless they have a PC in their car...
