   Perfect vacation planner
This is a durable, coated map that includes details of every town, city and county in the region. It's great to be back home, planning our vacation. Once I reach Iceland, I will be able to plug in GPS points to find exact locations. Between this map and the small fold-up map in Top Ten Iceland, I am set to travel. Yes, I will definitely use National Geographic maps in the future.

   Great map of Iceland
That was the case with Baby Ice. It won't tell you how to get there. Once you get there, it will tell you how to get around.

   Wonderful map, I love that it was so detailed ...
It was so detailed and water-resistant, making it great for all kinds of weather in Iceland!

   I was happy to have a GPS to back it up though
It was a solidly good map job getting us around Iceland, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It was a relief to have a GPS to back it up. There was a whole set of tunnels that were not on there, and when I asked my Icelandic friends they told me they were built several years ago. Boo to Nat Geo for not updating this map.

   BEWARE - "2019" Edition is actually 2015 data - Map is NOT Accurate in some areas
The updated map uses data from the 2015 census, which is based on the most recent available figures. The new road is better paved than the old one. The old Rt 1 is now Rt 95 and leads into Rt 939 and the Oxi Pass is one of the scarier roads in Iceland. Not all sections of the road will have paved shoulders. When I asked them if they would take the old route, they said they don't take it. The new route adds 30 minutes and 20 miles but is a better drive.

   Nice map, good non-tear quality
I ordered both the International map and the topographic map. While the International map has a little more detail, it is more cumbersome and the paper is less dense. The NG had a sturdier paper, and there was some overlap when you flipped the map, at the town of Vik on the south coast. Also, I really liked that all the road types were filled in color if paved, and not filled in if unpaved, making it easy to assess if you can go on them without a four wheel drive vehicle. The F roads, 4-wheel drive, were also slightly better marked on the NG map. I did like the colors on the International map better, but unless you wanted a larger map for your eyes, I would go with NG.

   Its an ok map to get an idea of sightseeing locations.
This is a good map for travel. But I found the names of places slightly different than my Rick Steve's book. I used it to get an idea of how far I was going to drive and what time I would arrive. It's just that I rarely pulled the map out of my pocket. Renting a car can be a lot cheaper than using a GPS device.

   Was only useful as an orientation map
I used this as a planning map, marking all the places we were going, to have an overall view of what we were going to do, and be able to plan our route and timing. It didn't always have smaller roads on it and would have been extremely difficult to follow this map for driving. But served its purpose and with GPS access these road maps aren't that important. It also came with a hefty price tag - we wanted it as a backup in case we lost track of our GPS. The Dymo product is made of paper and has a bit of a water-resistant coating. It worked well for me, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   National Geographic Map - Iceland
Some people on the plane were envious that I had this along. The G20 is rugged, tear and water resistant, and is also CE approved. It was great to be back home, said Dr. Steve Shannon, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. I would not have taken that trip without one.

   Excellent map for my purpose
It was a group hiking trip I took in August. It was just what I wanted for finding all the out of the way places we went, Mr. Daschle said. We had local guides who drove so I did not use this for navigation, she said. Even with this level of detail, I'd say that even with this level of planning, you will have some surprises if you drive in Iceland. There are no bridges in those parts of the world, and tourism is relatively new there. So don't count on using this map, which is a good one, to have the kind of driving experience you would in Europe or the US.
