They still make these in 2016?

Do not be conned by this. It's a stunt they pull every year to sell their sordid little toilet paper rag.

It's just a thin paper worthless travesty of an atlas at such a scale that it's really only of use if you happen to be flying a helicopter. Of no use at all as a road atlas.

In much the same way as the Mail's of no use at all as a newspaper.

So funny Newbold, but 100% absolutely true.

good find op, heat added

2017 ?? How are they going to put in the new stretch of the A30 at Bodmin Cornwall which should open in april 17. Probably many more too. Maybe you get a free marker pen to draw them in. Lol. Good find though.

Presumably any area of continental Europe that intrudes onto the map is marked with "Here be dragons".

Good find. You also get the TV magazine, which is excellent.

Backup for the glove compartment incase Satnav goes ti ts up

To be fair, They do have a cracking centre-spread pullout puzzle page

Fear not fellow travellers... the real sized ones are always in the pound shops, and you dont have to buy a copy of "Big Jugs Monthly" in which to secrete the paper...

Now your old car can have stop start as well.

90p for a bit of massively unsuitable loo roll, no deal!

Heat for the heads up - fwiw I used the 79p 2015 one I got from Home Bargains. Better than a SatNav as I was able to negotiate around Galloway forest - a route selected by the SatNav...

Better than Satnav?

Can you get John Cleese or Darth Vader to talk the directions to you with this map?

Hot from me - it's twice the size of last years. Also worth shelling out a quid or two for the a3 sized one aswell for more detailed planning if you don't trust satnav.

Always good to have a road atlas or local book of maps in the car whether you have sat nav or not a map book might go out of date as new roads and what n are built but it will always work when the gadgets don't

Which I even funnier when you know that the Daily Mail supported Hitler before the war.

some have roads due to open but with broken lines and due date

Free Betamax tape next Saturday!

All Mail-bashing aside, tempting as it is... 9 miles to an inch!? Good luck navigating with that, should be alright as long as you don't plan on leaving the motorway - otherwise utterly pointless.

The AA GB and Ireland road atlas can be had from the Works for a £2, and that's 4 miles to an inch. Worth it just for the fact it doesn't have "Daily Mail" on the front in my opinion. They also have the more useful large scale 3 miles to an inch version for £4.

Still not a good enough reason to buy this rag.

And it's still....tiny!

People get conned into buying this by the Mail every year. Every year it's posted on HUKD, and every year people realise it's a totally useless atlas which serves no purpose whatever.

Think about it. 9 miles to an inch. That's the distance from Dulwich to Hampstead, right across London from the south to the north in just one inch - what possible use is that to anyone using anything that isn't actually flying?

Worthless piece of paper. Only motorway and some A roads. Nothing that you couldn't just use those huge sign posts for...

Got mine, will live in the glove compartment until the need arises to look at it. If the need doesn't arise until next year when it'll be replaced by the next edition, then I'll have to resign myself to living the rest of my life 80p worse off.

These things are great for starting in-car holiday journey arguments with the other half
