    Best maps

    5/5 aloha (Aurora, IL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) All of the James Bier maps are the best of every island. Don't waste your money on others and don't try to find off the beaten path places with rental car maps. These maps show the locacations and name of every waterfall and the date of every lava flow. A must for those interested in the real Hawaii. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2011

    Best maps for Hawaii

    5/5 Hawaii guy (Big Island) - See all my reviews This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) The James Bier maps of the Hawaii Islands are the best reference for your travels. We've been using these maps for getting around the islands for over 20 years. The detailed geographic information and relief shading to show land details and lava flows are great. The close-up maps of developed areas and special features such as Hawaii Volcano National park cover just about everything you'll need.The only other map we use is the book (Ready Map Book of East (or West) Hawaii) of street maps that helps us find specific streets in the various subdivisions. We only need that on rare occasions. Usually the James Bier map is enough. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 8, 2012

    A MUST if you're planning on adventuring while in hawaii!

    5/5 KerriB - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) My husband and I were planning on going to the big island and, although we had a GPS, I wanted a map that we would use to mark the places we wanted to go while we were on the plane (something to do to pass the 10 hours in the air! :) this map turned out to be a Godsend! we were on the Big Island for 8 days and wore this map out! we did a lot of touristing and this map was really helpful! Not only did it show towns, roads, etc., it also showed points of interest that came in very handy! It also showed the lava flows and gave the dates of them. If you're going to the Big Island and plan on doing some adventuring, this is a great map to get! We also got one for Oahu, which was very helpful on that island as well.

    One word - useless

    1/5 Mstar - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) I hated this book once I was on our Big Island vacation. It is worthless and got us actually lost multiple times. It has not been updated for any road changes, such as the changes to Saddle Road completed in 2013. Therefore the mile marker directions were off. Overall the maps included in the book were worthless. The organization of the book makes it so difficult to use. I consistently had to be flipping between sections when visiting one area of the island because top highlights, beaches, shops, food, etc. are all separated than organized by location by rather than location first. The food section recommendations were terrible and price ranges for those recommendation were incorrect. I hated this book so much I tossed it half way through our trip. Even our tour guide recommended the Hawaii Big Island Revealed and recommended just downloading the app. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 23, 2016

    A comprehensive guide to The Big Island

    4/5 Barbara W. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Has everything I need to find out about travel to The Big Island. I bought another guide first but it contained lots of opinions and essays about specific locales, when I really just wanted the facts, which Fodor's clearly provides. I like that this guide doesn't just refer you to another source...you can take this along and be reasonably informed without having to use your smartphone or computer. The only thing I didn't find helpful was the sections on Hawaii in general. I wasn't interested in reading about other islands since I purchased a book about the island of Hawaii specifically.

    Buy another book for your BI adventure

    2/5 Tania D. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fodor's Big Island of Hawaii (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Lacks detail and doesn't have a lot of useful information. Most pages were similar to or the same as information in other Fodor's Hawaii guide books (eg. Oahu edition - which I also bough) so, if you're going to multiple islands, skip this book. It was actually very frustrating to use. I wish I had bought the blue 'revealed' series of books instead.
