Road Atlases on Kindle

There are 3 Rand McNally Road Atlases available on the Kindle since December for $1.59: Washington State, Southern & Northern Calif.

Not that easy to read but now marginally better with zoom upgrade in 1.2 firmware. Possible that 16 shades of grey in Kindle 2 will improve it further.

Would be interested to hear if that is the case from anyone who has any of the maps when they get their Kindle 2.

Even with the zoom capability (and the better grey scaling on the K2), this doesn't seem like the best type of material for the Kindle.

Me, I'll stick with paper, GPS, and Google Maps on my phone/laptop.
