Today I purchased this at Barnes and Nobel after comparing it to Michelin and the other Rand McNally atlases of all sizes and versions that the store had. This one had more detail and showed small towns that the other atlases did not. The states are in alphabetical order which I prefer to the 'go to page so and so' for the continuing road. I was able to read the print without my glasses. I am pleased with the atlas.

My husband and I have always trusted Rand McNally maps for our traveling needs. Since I made it a point to travel to all 50 states before I turned 30 years old, I definitely used them a LOT, by myself and with my husband! I am not a fan of GPS and would much prefer to look at paper versions and literally map out plans instead of listening to an annoying GPS voice 'baby' me with sometimes inefficient turns and roadways. Plus, sometimes it is nice to know where National Parks, Wildlife Refuges, or other magnificent sightseeing opportunities are! With an Atlas you can get off the beaten path a bit! :) Anyone who wants to feel confident in their travels through the USA should definitely own a Rand McNally Atlas and have it planted in each vehicle. These maps have never, ever steered us in the wrong direction! :)

I ordered this Atlas as a replacement for my old Atlas. I was in a rush like usual and saw that it was Rand McNally like my old atlas and people were giving it a 5 star rating. I did not realize that it said Large "Scale", I thought they were referring to the actual size of the atlas being the large one that is 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 inches. I ordered it and after it came as I sat down to look at the map to plan my trip I noticed that the maps were not the same scale as my old atlas. Most of the maps of each state in my old atlas take up 2 pages so you can see the entire state displayed. This atlas gives most states 4 pages and divides the state into quadrants. There are a few states that have even more than 4 pages. It does not display the entire state in two pages so that you can view the entire state.

My eyes haven't been getting any better since my original 1990 Rand McNally Road Atlas, and I felt like it was a good idea to replace the 2003 copy I currently keep in my car. So "Large Scale" sounds pretty good to me. It's actually a mixed bag. I'll compare / contrast, with the pro & con.

A quick sanity check of some areas I know have undergone recent growth shows the information has been updated. Municipalities that were a tiny dot in 2003 are now a medium sized dot, and the highway re-designations (going from a sate highway to a federal interstate) I checked are now accurately shown.

It's a tiny bit smaller than the old "traditional" copy, except it's about twice as thick - maybe three times if you include the spiral binder. The scale of maps I checked is definitely larger.

Some real-world comparisons ... measuring the on-page differences between the city centers of Jacksonville, FL and Orlando, FL ; in the 2003 version it's about 5.5", in the 2016 Large Scale it's about 7.5" - I think that mainly gives more room for larger text. Measuring the height of the "J" in Jacksonville ... 2003 = 0.145", 2016 = 0.165" ... I won't attempt to accurately measure the smallest text but on the Large Scale version is more easily read without concentration or optical assistance. So, a solid win for the Large Scale - and I believe their claim of "35% larger maps" is supported.

Even with pretty careful and infrequent use, plus the official protective cover, I've found the yardstick covers of my past atlases inevitably come loose from their stapled binding. The Large Scale is spiral bound, so again ... win for the Large Scale, at least for longevity.

This is our third version of this atlas. We love the large print and extra pages used to split some states into more than one page. Also love the way they bind it all together.

It's impossible to understand the favourable reviews of this product. First impression: all the pages were stuck together. They had to be carefully separated, pair by pair, trying not to tear the thin paper over the spiral binding. Then when I started trying to use the maps, I was astonished to find that where a map was split across two pages - most maps - there was just an arbitrary break. Words are split, even, unbelievably, letters. You'll find one half (or quarter) of the letter "t" on the left hand page and the remainder an inch away on the right hand page.
Perhaps users expect no better now, but I went back to an old (1996) Gousha road atlas and confirmed my recollection that, by human intervention, every page break was carefully arranged so that words were not split.
That's not all. Many states require two or more double-page spreads. Fine - that's the point of a large format. But there's no overlap. So for example Northeastern Pennsylvania takes a double-page spread on pages 178-179, and Southeastern Pennsylvania is on pages 180-181. Anyone who's actually used a map for driving knows that when there's a town at the bottom of one page, you should be able to find it at the top of the next page. That's how you orient yourself. Not with this road atlas. It's on one or the other, bot both.
It's as if someone laid out a huge map of the US on the floor, cut it into pieces for each state, and slapped the pieces into a book. If you think about it, the art of map publishing involves a lot more than that.
Incidentally, Pennsylvania takes three double-page spreads. Other reviewer have commented on how difficult the size makes the maps to use, but that perhaps depends on the type of use and personal preference.
