Need to buy Maps, Marocco.

I'm looking to buy the necessary IGN (or equally good - with Grids - the ones I've already got don't have em) maps for a quick circuit round Maroc (the M routes, end to end, more or less) over Christmas. I live a fair old way away from anywhere that sells them, and will be travelling down across Europe on the 26th in a slow rush, so buying them on the way is kind of out of the question, so does anyone know the best way for me to get hold of them, i.e. have them sent to me?

Any websites, phone No.'s for shops who'll send them out, other suggestions, much appriciated.

James.

Michelin 742 national Morocco will do for your kind of a trip. You can buy it anywhere on the way through France.

But the Michelin has no grids, the IGN has. You can order the 1:1000000 IGN 'Maroc' map online at IGN. I did it last year and the map arrived only 3 days later.

I already have the Mich map yes, and the problem is indeed that it doesn't have any grid for compass and GPS work.

I'll try the link you've supplied Rafke, and may post the results of my endeavours here.

Many thanks for the info.

James
