    Best maps

    0 5/5 aloha "Leilani" (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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 16, 2011

    Best maps for Hawaii

    0 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. 0 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!

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 24, 2013

    0 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. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 1, 2014

    About the maps and my tip on the best mac nuts on the island

    This book has lots of good maps and a little bit of everything you need to know for the Big Island. This new Foder's Big Island travel book is going with me on my 2nd trip to the big island and I'm pretty picky about which book goes in my carry on with me. This one foots the bill! It's a perfect size (5"x8") and doesn't take up much space in my bag.This book is packed full of information and really well-done full-color maps throughout the book (along with a full-sized fold-out map*). The maps in the book are very clear to follow with numbered dots that correspond to a list of the location names that are evaluated along the edge of the map. The text pages then describe each of the numbered locations in detail and orange stars for location that are Foder's Choice and black stars for locations that are highly recommended.Hotel and Resaurant prices are categorized from a single dollar sign ($) to four dollar signs ($$$$), yet no specific rates are given, so you're... 5/5 Caliaha "Caliaha" (Oregon United States) - See all my reviews, October 28, 2012

    Information is top notch, cheaper paper gives a downgrade

    When making a selection for a travel book, it is 95% presentation for me. I do not need to buy any books with all of the information on the internet, but when planning a special vacation, I want to be surrounded by information in a manner that adds to the ambiance of the trip preparation. The older travel books had high gloss pages and pictures that knocked your eyes out. This current version of The Big Island is the cheaper version with pages that are low gloss and pictures that seems somewhat washed out. It does nothing to add to the experience and excitement of planning that once in a lifetime vacation.On the positive side the information is excellent. By creating a separate book just for the Big Island, Fodor's has improved their selected locations and even has some day trip plans summarized. The beach descriptions are very well done and leave not much to chance. Out of the way places are now explained in greater detail, especially on the Hilo and South sides of... 4/5 Burgmicester (Pittsburgh) - See all my reviews, November 17, 2012

    Don't buy from this company!

    0 1/5 Eridqua (Tustin, CA USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Guide Franko Maps Waterproof Map (Map) Please don't buy from Franko's Maps anymore. The company's board of directors maliciously voted Franko out of his own company which he founded and built up starting in the 1990's. Franko's Maps continues to sell Franko's work in his name although he no longer supports or is affiliated with this company. They use his original artwork, his signature, and even his photo to wrongfully endorse their products. Franko is starting over from scratch, creating beautiful maps and fish ID cards under the name Green Planet Maps. I hope that all fans of Franko's work will support him in his new company.

    You don't need this map AND a guide book

    0 3/5 archieparchie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Hawaii The Big Island Guide Franko Maps Waterproof Map (Map) This map is sooo covered in text that it is almost too difficult to take it all in.I am sure it is waterproof and more durable than paper, but I thought it would be harder and covered with plastic. I guess it is all down to perceptions.If you are buying a guidebook and just looking for a relatively simple map for driving purposes, then this is not for you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 30, 2013

    good map, takes up little space, is waterproof

    The Franko's maps of the Hawaiian Islands take up little space, are made of waterproof material, and provide not only a good map of the area, but also highlights some of the favorite things to see or do on the islands. I have most of the maps that include: The Hawaiian Islands, Oahu Guide Map, Oahu Dive Map, Maui Guide Map, Maui Dive Map, Hawaii Guide Map, Kauai Guide Map and Kauai Dive Map. Six of the maps were available from Amazon.com with free shipping, but two had to be purchased from independent vendors on Amazon and charged a small shipping fee.For the few dollars I paid, it was well worth it to have a great map that folds up and takes little space in my suitcase. Once I get to a particular island, I take it with me to know where I'm going and where I've been. Bring along a Sharpie pen to mark the places you've been or want to return. The back side of the map has a blown up area of popular places, for example, Oahu has Waikiki Beach and the placement of hotels and... 5/5 Dannyboy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
