Description

SatNav systems tell drivers where they are, and take them there very efficiently, but they are less than ideal for trip planning, or for familiarizing yourself with an area. "Philip's SatNav Atlas Britain" complements in-car and portable SatNav systems by providing the overview maps and distance table needed for journey planning. The atlas opens with an information section - Get the most from your SatNav - which explains how the various different types of SatNav work, how to use them to the full, what to do when their information is out of date, and how to block unsatisfactory routes. The rest of the atlas consists of main road maps, city and town maps, and notes on the top visitor attractions in each destination.The main road maps are at 10 miles to 1 inch, showing A and B roads, primary routes and motorways, and marking motorway junctions and service areas. Also included are 100 city and town plans, with Navigator[registered] approach maps. All plans are fully indexed and are accompanied by useful information including local authority websites, radio stations, tourist information centres, and must-see sights. The approach mapping is at a scale of 1.5 miles to 1 inch and includes safety cameras with speed limits."Philip's SatNav Atlas Britain" also features motorway maps of London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester, plus an eight-page London section including a map of Greater London with named suburban through-roads and junctions, and a city-centre map complete with street index. These maps are a necessity for orientation, especially when a SatNav steers the driver into areas of high congestion. There are also useful notes on the OS National Grid and GPS.show more
