FMCA Road Atlas Vs Rand McNally Motor Carriers Road Atlas

7 posts in this topic

I just spent almost an hour typing and trying to post a question about the FMCA Road Atlas or the Rand McNally Motor Carries edition. What happened to it. I guess I might just as well buy my map book from amazon!:angry:

w6pea,

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

You do have another post with the same title here on the FMCA Forum.  But there is no content?? It is still out there-- I will probably delete the one with no content tomorrow, but wanted you to be able to see it first.

Sorry, don't know what happened.

I for one have a couple comments about the FMCA atlas. I glanced at it at Chandler. I could not read it since it was to small. It is designed for younger eyes or older Americans with a magnifiying glass. I know from a conversation there that it has been suggested numerous times to builkd an atlas in a large format that is easier to use. It was stated that "Charlie" voted it down. Why would anyone our age vote down an improvement to increase the useage of this product with FMCA on it. I currently but the large format one from Walmart...it is terrific.

I tried to post a couple of links, but I can't or could not get it to post. Is the FMCA Road Atlas laminated and or is a larger print version? I am almost ready to purchase the one I used to purchase every other year, the Rand McNally Motor Carriers spiral bound laminated Road Atlas. But if the one from FMCA is laminated and larger print I will buy that one to help support FMCA. And of course Walmart Locations, and Cracker Barrel locations are of more use to my DW and I in the RV than locations of DOT Weight Stations and Dot and State Vehicle inspection Stations. If I was still driving OTR for a living than I would spend the $51.00 for it.

I just opened my FMCA North American Road Atlas and Travel, 9th edition. What a disappointment, in our 7th edition most of the states take up two pages. In the 9th edition, most of the states are on one page. All this Atlas is good for is showing the interstate highways, some major roads and their index items, Walmart, Cracker Barrel, etc. In my opinion a waste of good money, which i'm going to try and get back.

I have an older Atlas that I use when traveling on roads off the interstates. It is a stapled edition without the spiral binder that cuts through right where you want to go. The details on the older atlas is very good for smaller roads and towns. It doesn't have overpass heights but what the heck, having to unhook and back up, to me is just part of driving a rolling earth quake down the road.:P

I still do not use glasses for distance vision , but I am starting to think about prescription reading glasses. The Walmart Cheaters don't work as well anymore on most maps. Will look for the  Walmart Atlas. An FMCA atlas like that might have sold well.
