This is a review for the 'AA Road Atlas 2009'


INTRO

Well it's that time of year for me where I think of going on my summer holiday This year I'm planning to take my car to France and go camping with friends, so a good map of France is a must.
I looked on Ebay for maps on France and came across 1500 results for French maps, after searching page after page I came across two different maps that I've used before one was the Michelin foldout map (very good) and the other was the 'AA Road Atlas France'.

As I wanted as much detail as I could get the 108 page 'AA Big Road Atlas France 2009' was at the top of my list. I managed to find the 'AA Road Atlas France 2009' map brand new on Ebay for £6.25p including the postage (retail £9.99).

AA ROAD ATLAS FRANCE 2009.

The 108 page 'AA Road Atlas France 2009' has everything I need in a map and more. It's clear scale 4.5 miles to 1 inch (1 : 280,000) makes reading easy and has been fully updated from IGN, France's official mapping agency, also there's over 20 town plans plus a central Paris map on page 93.
Not forgetting the detailed colour layout of Motorways, Roads, Tunnels, Railways, Airports, Junctions, Castle, Cathedral and funny enough even fixed camera sites. On page 2 there's a very useful distances and journey times table, which calculates the distance between 50 towns/cities in km. So say for example take Calais to Paris the distance is 294 km with a rough journey time of 316 minutes.


KEY POINTS
France's clearest mapping
Clear Scale 4.5 miles to 1 inch
(2.8km to 1cm)
20 Town plans
A map of Paris
Fully updated
Fixed speed camera sites
Distance and journey times
108 pages


SUMMARY

If you too are planning a holiday or even a quick visit to France I would have no hesitation in recommending the 'AA Road Atlas 2009'. It really does make all the difference when you have a clear, extremely detailed straightforward no nonsense map by your side whilst abroad. For the price I paid ,the 'AA Road Atlas 2009' is exceptional value in my opinion.
I'm very pleased with my new 'AA Road Atlas France 2009' map,
Why not check out Ebay now at www.ebay.co.uk to find the 'AA Road Atlas 2009' map at a great price.
