How do the maps work within Lonely Planet eBooks?

Maps are an important part of any Lonely Planet guidebook. As such, we have done a few things to ensure the best user experience taking into account the different capabilities of the various e-readers and devices.

  • Most Lonely Planet eBook maps are created in full colour and are also scalable, so you can zoom in for greater detail without losing resolution.
  • We have included hyperlinks so you can jump to-and-from the maps and ‘points-of-interest’ reviews.
  • Most guides also include Google maps integration. This enables you to immediately pinpoint the location of a ‘point-of-interest’ as well as your own location. You can then use Google map functionality to plot your best route and estimate time and distance. Internet connection is required to use Google maps.
  • Given that some (generally older) e-readers have limited functionality we also include links where you can download full colour maps as PDFs. These can be viewed on numerous devices or printed.
