One of the most frequently asked question in regards to the Republic of Sakha-Yakutia, that occupies 1/3 of Russia and 1/2 of Siberia + the Far East, is, of course, “Where online to download region maps?”
Always in my reply, I sent links that I could recall at once. Praise god, there is the list now.
Recently, Artem Petukhov, a friend of mine, who runs his local Adventure Club blog in Russian, has compiled the list of maps available online for free download.
If you are an active traveller – motorcyclist, 4wd driver, mountain trekker, hiker, whatever, you might wish to check out the following maps:
3. Moto roads maps.
5. Digital (GPS) maps for Navitel / Navitel Navigator. The link to the zip file. Yakutsk, districts: Megino-Kangalassky, Khangalassky, Kobyaysky, Lensky, Namsky, Mirninsky, Vilyuysky, Neryungrinsky)
Artem recommends also to use the SAS.Planet soft.
If you consider the listed maps are useful, please, share this info with your friends. Thanks!
