Benchmark Maps

Post by satillayakker » Apr 29 2013 9:56 am

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using the Benchmark Road and Recreation Atlases? I have heard they are very detailed and give much more insight to the particular state the map references than a standard atlas or even state recreation map (official rec map from state government). Is this correct? Are they worth the money (show much more detail and rec opportunity)? Is there a better complete map available?

Thanks a many

I've had their Arizona atlas for a while and think it's great. My favorite part is the public lands section. Mine was a gift so I don't know how much they are (I'm guessing $20-$25) and I'm considering getting a couple more for neighboring states.

Thanks Cindy. Unfortunately, I have an Android, not in the android market. What is the particulars of the app? Maybe I can find one similar?

I don't see an iOS app called HuntMarkers ... but FindMarkers seems to fit the bill.
