Why you need a map

  • With a map you get the big picture. You can see the network of roads. With a GPS you can only look at a small area on the screen.
  • You can plan your trip with a map.
  • You can open your map out & discuss your route & options with friends over beer.
  • A GPS actually isolates you from other people & interacting more with the locals. It takes a lot of the fun & adventure out of touring.
  • With a map you can interact with locals, checking directions & suggested routes.
  • With a map you can learn something as you go, looking out for landmarks or kms as you go. With a GPS you watch the screen to navigate & don’t necessarily look out for landmarks or kms, route numbers as you go.
  • Navigating with a map is part of the excitement of travel. Blindly following your GPS, letting it lead you round by the nose is no adventure.
  • A map doesn’t have a power failure of lose the GPS signal – it works with you all the time.
  • Lose your way with a GPS; but with a map you can least see the big picture & road network to work out where to go – what the options are.

Always take a GT Rider guide map with you, even just for a backup.
