Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Below Average rating is due to behavior in my iPod Touch 5 Nook app, not the book's contents. Although the contents are good, I'm trying to read it on my iPod Touch 5 Nook app, but it's just not cutting it. I might go get the hardcopy book. Issues: Hard to turn pages. Jump to unexpected pages, even when not tapping a link. I don't know if it's because it's not a full-fledged "tablet" or if it's the Nook app or if it's really not suited for the iPod Touch 5.
This is a nice map to take along on the trip, but combine it with a book which also has maps in it. 'Cafes Vancouver' was really useful for me on my trip to Vancouver.
