  • Hi everyone,we are due in los gig on monday if monarch can get us there.
    Just a quick query,does anyone know where we can get a good map of the islands roads(up to date if poss) because we do quite a bit of touring round now.

  • David Brawn produces a number of excellent maps, including, bus route, touring and hiking.  For the Bus/Touring map see....

    The AA map of Tenerife is also excellent.  Both are available on Amazon at...

    There is also a good map available from Tenerife Tourist Information offices.

  • I took our sat-nav over a couple of years ago, to find the speed of my dinghy, and the distance of a couple of walks. When I switched it on, to my shock, the marina and even the pontoons were showing. We use it all the time when in the car now, it's great for driving up and around the minor curvy mountain roads, as you can see what to expect after the next blind bend. So if you have one at home with European mapping it will work in the Canaries. For some reason the cigarette lighter outlet it plugs into in the hire cars, is larger than here in the UK, so you may to wedge in with a bit of cardboard or something similar.

    Yes, I too was surprised when I took my 6 year old TomTom sat nav to Tenerife and it worked perfectly.  Even used it when out walking to establish way points for later use on Google Erath.  Just bought a new TomTom so the old one is going out to stay in Tenerife permanently.
