These maps are printed both sides, and they also fold out pretty big, so if your route takes you over the page, maneouvring these beasts can be a little cumbersome. Note also that the key is only printed on one side, across a boundary and that can cause some difficulties. So, some serious map folding is needed - when I was in the Territorial Army, we even had a lesson on the subject.
The "Active" version is waterproofed and costs a few pounds more than the plain paper map but it is even bulkier. I prefer to use the paper map and stuff it in a map case or even a clear plakky bag. Horses for courses.
If you're sticking to roads, paths or decent tracks, or are going to be within sight of plenty of obvious landmarks, you can operate without a compass. If your walk is a little more adventurous, you'd be wise to carry one with you, but bear in mind that effective compass usage doesn't come without a little training and practise.
Final tip: before you leave the car park, "orient the map". In other words, make sure you know where you are on the map and where you're going. Line up your route on the map with the route on the ground and be aware that this might require you to hold the map upside down or on it's side.Read more ›
I've therefore gone back to good old fashioned paper maps, using pencil to mark my routes and then a rubber to rub them out, you can't go wrong! Plus it'll save you a few quid getting this one over the other version!
Well done to Amazon by the way for being able to sell this map so cheap, very impressed!
Equally and more particular to this product is the fact that it is laminated - not only is this going to be great when its actually being used but I think that it will mean the map will last longer (specifically it wont tear/rip along the folds).
