Addendums
« on: December 02, 2011, 11:22:16 am »
I recieved a bunch of maps and the addendums for them a few months ago. However, I won't be using them untill at least May of next year, so I'm wondering about the addendums. I'll try and ask this in a way everyone can understand (it has me confused, anyway)...

If I were to order more up to date addendums in the future, will they include the corrections listed on the addendums I have? How will they relate to the maps and addendums I have now? Is any of this any clearer to you than it looks to me (I hope)? ??? ???

Just before you leave on your trip go to the following link and you will be able to print the most current addenda for your maps. We update addenda every month, though it is possible that not every map's addendum will have changed. If you look at the addenda you received you will see a date in parentheses (for example, Oct 2011) for each map panel entry. If your copy shows (Aug 2011) and the one online is (Oct 2011) that means it has been updated. That's the way you can tell if an entry has been added since you received your maps a few months ago.

If you don't have access to a computer you can call us and we will mail you the current addenda for your maps.

That part I understand (thanks), but what about the corrections on the addendums I presently have? Will the "new" addendums include any pertinent updates to them?

I can't answer that because I don't know. It's possible that there may be updates. I guess I can think of a situation where a bike shop moved to a new address and we noted it, then several months later it was sold and it now has a new name. So we would update the addenda with the new info. But I can't say yes, the addenda will change from what you presently have.

Bicycle Rider, I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but if, right before your trip, you print the latest addenda for the map version you have (and all subsequent version if any), then you can safely throw away the addenda you currently have.

No. The addenda are not cumulative. From the addenda page on the web site, "Please match the BC number on your map's cover to the addenda below. To update an older map, you must download ALL newer addenda for maps subsequent to yours. The BC number incorporates the year of the map in the last three digits: e.g. 04L means the map was reprinted in 2004."

Further clarification....
The addenda you get from ACA online or through the store will match the map version that you have. If a new map has been printed since you purchased your map there will possibly be an addenda for it. So you will have to get the most current addenda to match your map plus the newest map addenda.

If this is still confusing please call me. Maybe it will make more sense if we talk. 800-755-2453x218.
