I needed a map that would serve as a back up if the GPS failed us. As our first road, we don't want to be left stranded and get lost, so we ordered this map. This map comes with great detail and useful tools to determine mileage and time. Highly recommend for any travelers needing a trustworthy map.

Only drawback is that the map is huge, so a person might need to make a stop to look through it. The map covers a good portion of the front windshield.
Maps are going the way of the record player, news papers and dial telephones. Stopped in a super sized gas station/truck stop in North Florida ( the gate way for millions of tourists annually) and could not find a map anywhere in the place. The guy at the cash register said they stopped selling them years ago! Everyone uses GPS. The books stores have a few local fold out maps but mostly guide books. Obviously I'm not making the media transition very gracefully. Guess that makes me a technology fossil....I prefer the bigger view and information charts provided by a huge, printed, fold out map to the microscopic, telescoping view on a minuscule screen that more often than not is consistently wrong enough to earn my distrust. Besides, they don't disappear when the signal for my cell phone says "out of area". So, thank you Amazon and Rand McNally for keeping cartography,as I learned it, undated, accurate and available.
Half of California is on one side, the rest on the other, split right across the area we were traveling South of San Francisco. This is an oversized map, and Rand-McNally has a good reputation, so I was expecting the larger size indicated more detail. That is unfortunately not the case and most of the added space is what the computer guys term "white space"; i.e., nothing in it. Moreover, the larger size makes the map more awkward to use in a car, especially when you need to flip between the front and the back. We were tracking missions in the area and ended up relying on an older, smaller, and out of date map we had along from a previous trip. In comparison, our older map had all of California on one side and had more detail.
Large print and easy to read. We have the GPS but it's nice to have a paper map to see the alternate routes and places in the areas. As Rand McNally maps do, distances are shown between cities and turn-offs. We do not travel without paper maps.
This series of Rand McNally Maps are the best road maps in my opinion. They are bigger than most other maps, especially the ones given out by state highway departments at rest stops. This of course makes the map easier to read and allows these maps to have more detail and include more of the smaller roads. Plus, look how many enlarged detail maps of cities are included, these maps include detail maps of medium size cities left off of other maps and atlases.
I am a roadmap collector and recently bought the RandMcNally maps for all 50 states, plus a US Interstate map. I like the large scale used and helps considering my vision is less than ideal. I also use these maps to supplement the official maps that I also have for the entire country
I'm good with folding maps, but the crisp paper this one is printed on is very easily torn. Not the best for a car trip!
I grew up using maps, since I enjoy the outdoors quite well. My boyfriend decided we needed a new map for our fishing trip. He has never used a map, and with the ease of this map, he was able to learn the ins and outs of using a map. He was also able to find directions to a place we were searching to go.
