The 2006 edition is no different, except that it comes with a strong vinyl cover (which also doubles as a handy file pouch for brochures, receipts, tickets,etc.) and a newly formatted index of cities, counties and states, with up-to-date population estimates, and easily understood indices.
The choice of lavender and purple highlights and overtones for the index can make reading the small font sizes a little tricky (especially if you suffer from "old eyes", as I do). But this is a trivial complaint; by and large, the 2006 Rand-McNally Road Atlas is the best deal you will find. If you buy it, you won't be sorry.
The vinyl cover is nice for protecting the pages.
This Atlas is a must have for anyone driving through the US. It will easily allow you to map routes as well as alternate routes which I used different color highlighters to show on the various pages. The Atlas includes a double page of the entire US so you can get a feel of the major Interstates and then drill down into the state pages to obtain more detail about your routes. Another great feature is that the larger states have numerous pages dedicated to them so a bunch of roads are not all crammed together on one page.
The plastic cover is a great feature as well and saved the Atlas from getting ruined from snow along the way.
Visiting USA and/or Canada every,2-3 years, as a tourist, it has proven invaluable.
My wife and I like to get out on our own.
Relying on information from the local people we meet. It be family, friends or the waitress at the local diner.
That way we've had many pleasant and -often- unexpected experiences.
I'm pretty good at finding my way around. And with this map to guide me, I've not yet been totally lost. It be, driving along the vast north-eastern highway-system, or out on the small British Coloumbian backroads.
I recommend this for everyone planning a trip to America. Buy it at home. And use it for planning -and dreaming. Besides the maps there's also a lot of useful information regarding general traffic rules. Invaluable stuff to a foreigner used to european traffic.
Very good quality and IMO, a good value. I won't wait 10 years before getting a new atlas this time around, but this didn't break the budget enough that I should have to!
