it's the aldi version meaning all aldi are 'conveniently' marked for your shopping pleasure; in my local store but I guess nationwide. Handy to have in the car just incase your tom tom and your smart phone die on you.

Excellent price for 4 square mile to 1 inch map including safety cameras, service areas, scenic routes, and top 300 camping sites.

What is this strange item.....do you plug it in your 12v socket?

Great deal, have some heat.

AA, batteries?
2015GB, 2TB?

:\

Does it come with an app download ?

Good price factoring the cost of printing alone, but interesting how they can predict the future of Britain's Roads...

Good for people who like to get an idea of the area they're in or travelling through, rather than just look at a small screen telling them to turn left in 40 miles.

Very true. Already my 2013 Road Atlas is completely useless; the entire UK road network and geography has changed beyond all recognition since I bought it 6 months ago.

when i was a lad, we used to use these paper maps!

If my satnav died and my smartphone died, my other half would still be navigating... no mute button

The serious answer is they work with the Highways Agency so they can include any new roads (new bypasses, rearranged junctions, upgraded roads etc) that are being built now or in the next 12 months. They are often marked with a different colour to show that they may not exist at the time of printing.

Sweet, picking up my new car tomorrow and I was planning on getting a roadmap to put in the glovebox/boot.
Never have to worry about the battery dying, losing GPS signal, software errors or someone nicking it.
For £1.79 you can't go wrong.

Where on the dashboard do I attach this to my motorbike? Is there a waterproof case for it? I like the idea it does not need batteries.

You need to subscribe to updates. £1.79 per year.

Can't get a John Cleese voice on it though.

does this have the aldi stores printed on it? like last/this years did?

Cold

You can buy android tablet for similar money

**apple user smug face**

lol

Great as a back up but otherwise the print is very small.

Damn, bought one at my local petrol station yesterday for £1.99. Another hole punched in my wall ...

Indeed and sadly you'll find the number of Happy Eaters has much declined since the 2013 edition.

It's always been £1.99 in The Works if anyone wants a non-Aldi store version!

Do people seriously still use these?! Maybe by people that use a mangle instead of a washing machine I suppose.

If the satellite system were to break down or get corrupted then these are going to shoot up in value, fill yer boots now i say.

Duuuuhhh. Oh of course you're right, all forms of paper maps are now obsolete now we have GPS apps on our smartphones!

A Satnav is used to direct you from A to B. A Road Atlas (or any map in general) is used to give you a context of where you are in the surrounding area so you can, for example, decide what to do when you're there.

Saw the 2014 in B&M a while back for 39p but didn't buy as don't need one

at that price good to buy and leave in the car boot just in case sat nav goes down etc

I still get by with my 1998 AA roadmap. It has the M6 toll marked as a proposed route!

Smartphones can do both.

As seven of nine would say

"Paper is irrelevant"

Your better of spending 99p on a car charger for your phone

SatNavs/Apps are only really good for long (30+ miles) distances.
On short distances its better to have a glance at a map and plan a route which is applicable to how you drive, what you drive and your preferences.
Its a lot easier to look at a A4 map when your on holiday *or staying somewhere) and see what's around you, then it is trying to navigate a 4" screen.

It's good to use in tandem with a satnav as others have mentioned but it's BIG.
It's about 16"x12" in old money so you would need an estate car for it not to be in the way!

Thanks anyway

Very handy

£1.99 at Sainsbury's fuel station. Grabbed one as it's a useful back-up.
