    Default Getting route maps 4 long drives.

    Hi guys,
    Yesterday I was tryin to find the road map for our Daman ride and found this site.
    You can get the custom map btn any two places. zoom into the map, find the roads etc...

    http://encarta.msn.com/encnet/featur...enter/map.aspx

    In this map, you can find the addresses(5* though) of hotels, find air ports etc...
    http://www.multimap.com/map/home.cgi

    And in this, you have many themes of maps, like, geographical, roads, and you can find the distance using the tool.

    Hope this will help all the riders

    Respectfully, it helps only in the planning, area selection phase. In India, the maps do no justice to the thickness or existence of roads

    I use the TTK Road maps that are foldable! They're better for on-the-road purpose IMHO, though something like the official state highways map would be real helpful!

    What do you think?

    @hitanshu -You are spot on . Some of the roads exist in the map, not on the ground, and vice versa. This is especially true of the minor roads, but applicable to ome of the major ones as well. Also they do not tell you whether construction work is on. Best to have a tentative plan, and keep gathering local knowledge as u move on.

    That's the directions from my house to a friend's office. Mapquest gives you the directions from anywhere to anywhere in the US (and Europe too).
