Nothing wrong with paper maps, never had a problem. Mind you sat navs might work here...........................ive only ever come accross a couple of one ways!!!
We have used our old Tom Tom in Oz and was pleased we had it with us. However it didn't want to play one night and we still found our way back to the hotel.
We downloaded the map a few years ago and to be honest wouldn't go with out it. After a while you may not need it so much but at first it's better to keep your eye on the road not a map!
Don't forget you will most likely visit other areas of OZ in the future so it won't be a waste of money.
Map! There are not that many roads!!! We drove from sydney to adelaide and it was pretty much one road!! I love maps so i'm biased!!!!

We bought a UBD when we did our reccie last year and took it back with us. Gave us a chance to look up areas again when we were on real estate after we had returned to the UK.
But, since arriving in March, my OH uses the UBD, but he drives pretty much everywhere now and is getting very used to the roads. I on the other hand use a satnav, I can navigate with a map but can't find my way there when driving myself without the aid of the lovely man in the box called Tom x
I still get lost in Hallett Cove, let alone being let loose on the streets without my trusty box!
Some are good at it, some aren't.........I'm one of those who wouldn't leave home without it!

We got lost once with Tom Tom and Val said what a waste of money it was. But like I said to her Tom Tom wasn't to know as he hadn't been there before either!!!!!
Give me the UBD anyday! Used a sat nav once stupid thing, daughter put 1 letter wrong on the postcode and we were heading up to north London. Good job I remembered the way and realised before we went too far.
Seroiusly though I think it is not hard to get lost in an unknown place but in ADL you can get straight back on track quick the roads mostly go north - south east-west.
I can see how you can get lost in HC its the only part of ADL that has bendy roads other than the country type roads!
