Larger scale doesn't necessarily mean greater utility. If the scale of a road atlas is too large, you have to turn the page too many times to get from one place to another, and it's difficult to visualize your route. Clear representation of the various classes of roads, at the RIGHT scale, makes an atlas most useful.
As a California resident and frequent visitor to New Mexico I've used both Benchmark books many times and recommend them highly.
I am rating it 3 stars due to the huge scale used on the maps. I wish it was at least what DeLorme offers.
The scale on the pages is 400,000 to 1. This means you lose A LOT of detail.
I have the Nevada (280,000 to 1) & Utah (250,000 to 1) map books by Benchmark and the difference in usefulness is striking.
If you have the chance, take a look at the Utah vs New Mexico or Arizona books to see for yourself.
Rather than have the large scale "landscape" maps and then fine scale detail maps (as they do with the Nevada and Utah books) Benchmark just uses the same scale, same maps and just changes the background information.
All four of the "four corner" map books should be at the same scale, all under 300,000 to one.
I wrote directly to Benchmark with feedback concerning this and other issues and they could not bother with a reply. I will think twice before buying their products again.
