Maybe I am going over the top, but while I feel a GPS unit is the way to go
I have still purchased maps to fill in gaps that I had for our up coming
trip to WA. The last Atlas used 1-1,000,000 World Aeronautical Charts as
one of the options. These maps have got very dear, but I have filled the
gaps with 1-1,000,000 International Maps of the World which are essentially
the same as the Aeronautical charts without the Magnetic variations. If
Atlasers are only working in 1 degree grids these are adequate and
relatively cheap at $7-50 each. But I agree, to do a trip like we are from
Queensland to inland WA, up as far as Mt Augustus and back to the SW and
home including Western Vic and NSW will take 16 maps. If the grids are
smaller than 1 degree then a GPS is definitely the go cost wise.
