Rotweiler's Myanmar Routable Version 1.26 - Routable map of the Union of Myanmar. As with all Rotweiler maps, this mapset is fully routable and indexed.
The Myanmar mapset covers much of the Union of Myanmar. Most of the major highways are included as well as detail for the country's major cities. This build includes substantially improved roads in Shan State as well as within the Cities of Yangon and Mandalay. Based on our recent overland trip from Chiang Rai to Mandalay, this mapset is navigation-ready, certainly for the routes, areas, and cities visitors to the country are likely to travel.
The mapset has also been compiled using the latest version of cGPSMapper (THANK YOU, STAN!) for improved routing and recognition of turn restrictions. A big thank you to all who provided POIs and routes - ESPECIALLY Nguyen! Without the assistance of our members, our maps would not be possible.
A brief comment on the issue of highways standards in Myanmar. For anyone who HAS travelled in the country, it will be no surprise when we say that the Union of Myanmar has some of the best (and some of the worst) highways in Southeast Asia. The latter should be no surprise - but the former was - for us at least. For example, the new National Highway 1 is spectacular!. We have attempted to use the speed limit controls to modify the standard of the roadways and attempt to bring the marked speeds closer to reality, but in the absense of detailed information on many of the roads, it is best you be forwarned.
And a note on Myanmar itself. We must applaud and thank the authorities of the Union of Myanmar for the cooperation and the assistance they have provided. They have been nothing but helpful.
