IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT DIGITAL MAPS
1. Our digital maps are effectively snapshots of our paper maps. They are not interactive [enlargement does not reveal greater detail] nor does removing elements, eg title pane, reveal more mapped area. That said, they can be enlarged or reduced to the limits of their resolution [300 dpi] with complete flexibility.
2. Both PDF and JPG versions are provided in the ZIP file. PDF versions are generally password and print protected. These are high resolution maps and are thus copyright protected to prevent unauthorised commercial reproduction. We recommend the use of JPGs on smart phones, so you don't have to enter the password every time you want to use the map.
3. PLEASE NOTE that the relevant passwords are included in a 'passwords' file in the ZIP.
4. iPHONES: We have recently been made aware that some iPhones store picture content in the Cloud, not on the phone, necessitating downloads every time you want to use the map. Seems that Apple wasn't thinking about the vast areas of the earth with no wifi or phone reception. Work around this by installing a flash memory card in your phone if possible, so that the maps are always immediately available. This problem does not seem to occur on Android and other phones, as far as we know. Any info from users would be very helpful!
5. Please remember our recommendation: that you download your digital purchases to a laptop or other hard drive before transferring them [if required] to a tablet or smartphone.
6. Please note that digital products are NOT RETURNABLE! How could we possibly know whether they have been completely erased from all your devices? Please be fair!

Yes we received the digital access to the purchase for the above mentioned map real quick and downloaded it without incident. We have purchased maps before and were a little surprised that the access was so m uch more restricted than before since we use the section of the map for each particular route and blow them up a little more. WE DO HOWEVER UNDERSTND THAT PEOPLE ARE QUICK TO HAND OUT COPIES TO OTHERS INSTEAD OF JUST REDIRECTING THEM TO YOUR PURCHASE PAGE. A pity some people have to spoil it for others.... Anyway my children have enjoyed your maps on all the table mountain hikes and these silvermine and Hout Bay. thank you Blessings Lawrence Christopher
Instant map access. Purchase online & download. So easy to use.
I have always liked the Slingsby maps and take them with me wherever I hike. I only recently discovered that you can get digital copies and they are great to have. May there be many more in future. Thank you!
I love Slingsby maps for the ease with which they can be read, together with the information which they contain. I highly recommend them for anyone interested in the areas which they cover.
