Somerset West maps for people looking to find directions around the town or visitors and tourists who need to find places of interest and attractions in the area are available and not expensive. Streets and roads have not changed too dramatically in the last 5 years so even if you cannot get your hands on a brand new map you can be rest assured that the older ones are still quite accurate for information on some of the well known sights and finding your way around.
Other than the maps for Somerset West and surrounding areas many people nowadays rely on GPS car systems to navigate their way around in a vehicle on the SA roads. These systems started off a few years ago as a gadget more for tech heads and are quickly becoming a reliable tool for those who are not good with directions. They are particularly handy if you are driving alone and do not have a passenger sitting next to you who would be able to direct you. Although the GPS car systems are useful it is still a good idea to have a printed map of the area kept in your glove compartment as a back up should something go wrong with the device.
South Africa’s N2 highway is the main highway that runs through the town, past the Strand and Gordons Bay and up Sir Lowry’s Pass road. This is the road that travels up the East coast of SA which many holiday makers and travelers use particularly in the summer months when going on vacations and other trips. Travelling on the N2 highway in the other direction will take you to Cape Town which is about a 30-40 minute drive from the Helderberg area. If you are visiting the region and need to find your way when driving around the streets and roads of Somerset West then purchasing one of the maps available will certainly benefit you.
