The llama reminds me of the basement.
I forgot something and had to go back.

Not just apple. My Android based tablet can't do it either.

Hey, RMO, since you have an iPad, have you ever used the app MapsWithMe? I am in no way affiliated with the company, but their product is quite good. It allows you to download maps onto the iPad and view them without a cell connection. It's really useful if the iPad has a phone in it, since in that case you get a GPS chip that works even if you do not have an account with a cell provider. The Mexican maps are actually quite good, and from what I can tell the free version uses the same maps as the five buck version.

It will also work with an iPhone, but the screen size is quite limiting.

Are they good for highways or are they capable of showing what is really there?
BW, go to the map of Puebla and see if it shows Los Humeros in the extreme central east, almost on the border with Veracruz. If it shows it, does it show Maxtaloya? (Might be written Maztaloya with a z instead of an x). How many roads does the map show in and out of that zone and how many are paved?
I appreciate you running the test if you can, good maps are very hard to find, ones without errors and with decent coverage. Thanks if you get the chance.

It shows the location of Los Humeros and Maxtaloya, but not the road running from Perote to Los Humeros through Maxtaloya, nor any of the dirt roads around the area. Surprisingly, it has more place names than Guia Roji, but way fewer roads. But it does have a "where the fuck am I" button that works even without a cell phone connection as long as you have the GPS chip.

And its accurate enough that I've used it to find my hotel after getting lost walking and drinking in some of the cobble stone mazes that they call towns.

If you have an iOS device, you can download the free version of the app. from the App Store.

I'm gonna give this one a try on my iPhone 4. Will test it as a backup to my Garmin during the upcoming Mexico ride.
