In these days of GPS and sat nav, being able to read a road map is a dying art, but having some knowledge can be useful if you find yourself lost in an area, and your phone has no charge or the sat nav isn't working.

Here are some tips on how to read a road map:

  • Orient yourself: Start by orienting the map so that it matches the direction you are facing. This will make it easier to understand where you are and where you want to go.
  • Look for landmarks: Find recognizable landmarks on the map, such as rivers, mountains, and cities, to help you orient yourself.
  • Measure distances: Road maps usually have a scale, which you can use to measure the distance between two points. This can help you estimate the time it will take to get from one place to another.
  • Identify road types: Different types of roads are usually shown in different colors, with major highways being a different color than secondary roads.
  • Use symbols: Map symbols, such as those for rest areas, gas stations, and tourist attractions, can also help you plan your route.
  • Plan your route: Once you have oriented yourself, found landmarks, and identified road types and symbols, you can start planning your route by connecting the dots between your starting point and your destination.
  • Check for detours: Before you set out, it's a good idea to check for any road closures or detours that may affect your route.

By following these tips, you can make the most of your road map and navigate confidently on your next road trip.
