It claims to “include what sat-nav doesn’t”, yet this latest Navigator atlas disappointed in our test, failing to incorporate, for example, the new Luton Airport road layout. Hardly a dealbreaker, although the colours aren’t as bright as the winners’.

The paper isn’t up to the same quality, either, and with up to nine town maps to a page, the text is difficult to read – it would be really hard in the dark.

Still, unlike its rivals, it does give good indications of hamlet and town layouts, and its 3.15mpi scale lends itself to this.
