    I am finding it difficult to get Road Maps for all Countries in Europe, especially, Spain, France and Portugal. I have several maps, but not detailed where even the tiny villages or towns are NOT shown. Is it possible to get individual maps, say Spain, and I get all the towns and villages shown on the Map. I have tried Michellin, no luck.

    Mapping in Spain is carried out by the military and I suspect they have a different agenda to everyone else!
    Sadly, printed maps can take a long time to produce compared to online systems. PC based solutions are often more advanced than paper maps as well. Certainly we've seen a significant improvement in the level of detail in pc maps for Spain and Portugal.

    Frequently bought fairly detailed maps of France,Spain, Portugal etc in an AA book obtained from Aldi for £2.
    Any further detail I require I log onto Autoroute and if necessary print out details.

    We generally use the larger Michelin atlas. A bit meaty but quite detailed. Don't generally buy individual sheets other than for walking and such, and, of course, they need to be quite large scale - when they are available, which often they're not.
