DAH06 Digital Drakensberg North [Maps 1 & 2] - 2022

R 200.00 R 220.00

 BRAND NEW in 2022 ... These maps are the first two hugely-updated successors to our famous1970s/80s range of six Drakensberg maps. The Digital version that includes two maps in jpg format is available for download [125Mb], and covers the area from Mpokolane in the north through Royal Natal to Mnweni, then from Cathedral Peak via Monk's Cowl to Injesuthi.  Version 3.1 has been updated to Version 3.2 [November 2022] with a few small changes, path revisions and other minor updates.



These maps are FABULOUS when loaded on a Smart Phone or a Tablet ...

NOTE: We recommend that zip files be downloaded to a PC or laptop, NOT directly to a phone or tablet. After unzipping, copy files to your Camera Gallery

 Files are uploaded as a single Zip file. PLEASE BE PATIENT; LARGE FILES TAKE TIME TO LOAD. Download size: 125Mb

After you have made your checkout payment [or we've received your POP for your EFT], you'll get an automatic email with download instructions. Simple as that! [but be aware that some files are large, so allow plenty of time for the download!]. 

You will be allowed a maximum of two downloads per product  [Zip file] purchased.

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. 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!
3. 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.
4. 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!

Best maps ever

Great to have the new Slingsby Maps - I still use the old maps that I bought in the 1980s as a school boy, now we have some thing similar that should last a life time

Slingsby Maps - an essential Drakensberg hiking guide

I recently acquired the electronic version of the Slingsby Drakensberg North Maps. It is very convenient to have these maps on my phone. The resolution is excellent and enables you to zoom into a particular area for orientation purposes.

They also indicate routes not on 'Open Maps'. These maps are thus a critical companion to GPS-based map apps.

I am so happy Slingsby decided to upgrade the Drakensberg maps. He once again produced an excellent product. Ideal for hiking any of the dozens of trails.
