I’ve always loved the Rough Guide Maps of different cities and was surprised to find them no longer available on your website. Have they been discontinued for good? If so, can you shed any light on this decision? I always thought they were among the very best city maps and have used them for many cities. Is it that most people are carrying around smartphones with navigation functions and no longer buy maps?
Rick, a huge effort went into producing our maps so it’s nice to hear you enjoyed them so much. But yes, tough to justify making any more as people are switching to their phones and using ebooks, plus the maps in our guides are much more detailed now too. If you’re still keen to carry a map, you should try our pocket guides as we’ve created detailed pull-out maps for each city. Do you have a city in mind?
Sad to hear that. I also enjoyed the Rough Guide maps very much because they were quite sturdy and waterproof. And what keeps Rough Guide from making an App with the maps available if you speak of mobiles and tablets? Would be great to get a voucher for the map if you buy the book!
