Those Londonist folks are great to know about...I wonder if there are similar projects for other cities (of course...I'm thinking Paris).

In the US, I use the Scout GPS app. They seem to listen to feedback and have made several improvements in their updates of the app. Overseas I use Google Maps, but will try others

UPDATE: There's an important update to Google's navigation and maps: it's now possible to download the Google Maps for most areas and then use them for turn-by-turn navigation while off-line. Considering that there are still areas where cell service is weak and that many people don't have generous data allowances when abroad, this can be a BIG advantage. Available now for Android users, and soon for iPhone.

Londonist: Anglo Saxon London Map: Updated

PortMoresby ·
Londonist again. For you who enjoy gleaning a sense of what came before in places you visit, have a look at Londonist's Anglo Saxon map of London. In their words, "a map showing the London area in Anglo Saxon times (roughly speaking, 500-1066AD). It’s pieced together from many resources, showing our guess at the roads, rivers, forests and marshland that characterised the region. The main purpose was to highlight the many villages, hamlets and farmsteads whose names are still part of modern...

These sound suspiciously like the Knopf Mapguides that I've been using for years and love. See the fun video: http://knopfdoubleday.com/knopf-mapguides/

I'll have to look and see. The Knopf guides I had years ago combined a separate map and a small book in a plastic wallet.

Yes, do. I was feigning politeness. Let me be clear, Michelin has stolen their "slightly different niche" from Knopf and copied the most perfect little guides ever printed. Who do they think they're kidding?

Re: Michelin's launches new 'all-in-one' guides

Two things... 1. After a visit to my shelves, I see that what I remembered as Knopf products were actually the Fodor Citypack series. 2. I won't know for sure until my Michelin London arrives over the weekend, but one difference appears to be that the Knopf has 8 maps for 8 districts, while the Michelin identifies itself as 25 pages. But how pages are being counted I can't yet say. But I'm not sure that one could really apply the word "stolen" to publishing a rival folded-map guide, no...
