Noticed these in 99p stores. Will be handy. These are not the detailed london ones, but rather a national one. Saw a similar one in waterstone for £5.99.

Corrected Title, these are not map, but the AA road atlas book. that gives detailed maps of various regions, not just london

Not sure why this would be cold. This is much better than using a GPS.

Must be something wrong with your GPS then. Mine works perfectly.

Whats an Atlas?

Can't knock a map... try browsing a route, or planning a nice drive on a gps...

Nice price!

I never said something was wrong with my GPS. It is never as good as plotting your own route using a map.

Good price and more reliable than a satnav.
Heat added.

When I go for an exploration drive I don't use my GPS to get there, I just go where the road takes me, it's only when I'm bored or I want to go home that I switch the GPS on and press 'home'. Which eliminates the need to plan anything. Much more fun than plotting a designated route in my opinion.

Even with a GPS in the car, a road Atlas can still occasionally come in very handy. Could have used one last year when the Tomtom tried to take us home over a bridge that had been temporarily closed. Its not very easy to choose the best alternative route with such a small display - scrolling around to find the bridge and mark it blocked once we'd found somewhere to stop took long enough. Ended up being guided through a busy city centre :(.

So, as I said, try it on your GPS...

I do, I use my iPhone as my GPS when Im in the car. Im running the Tom Tom Software and it works perfect. If for any reason I need a map I would just use google and get the latest up to date maps there. So put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Oh dear god! You pedant!
I know gps software works perfectly... at what it does...
As I said, try browsing a map and designing a route on it..., not on google maps, on your tomtom.
And don't say you do, cos I own it too, and it's rubbish at it.
There is nothing like perusing an actual, physical map for leisure. Google is good, but still not the same, unless you run it on a 5 foot, 2560 res screen...
