    @vwalan will be along shortly to advise (y) I've forgotten the name of the ones he recommends but I think it's something to do with their main petroleum supplier.

    yes thats the one . used to be cepsa mapamax but they have dropped the cepsa . shame as you always knew where the garage was if inland and in the wilds .
    i,m told repsol did one the same but have never seen it,
    but its a better map than michelin and shows the little bays and coves others dont tell you .doesnt show airres but are they important . i hardly use them usually very crowded.

    Bought a mapamax a few weeks ago and to be honest there are secondary roads shown on the michelin map,which is the same scale, which are not shown on the mapamax. It does name every tiny beach though and the larger pages make it easier to use en route for planning than the michelin.
