I found a correct one in a bookstore and off I went.
I like the fact that this map is laminated and fit nicely into a big pocket in my walking shorts. It had enough detail that I never got lost and I was able to navigate points of interest via the subway. I did constantly refer to the compass next to each insert to remind me that north was at the bottom. Based upon comments about safety concerns I was very cautious in opening the map except in a secluded place. I am sure I looked like a tourist but I didn't want to be seen walking around with a map constantly open. This I am sure contributed to a number of wrong turns.
If you cannot adjust your thinking of north and south and/or are not comfortable with a compass than I think you will have a hard time with the map and should seek out a local map upon arrival. One of my walking guides really liked the map--they couldn't get it there. Too bad Streetwise couldn't print one for us tourists to use and one for the locals.
P.S. This review was inadvertently previously posted by me a a review of the Rough Guide to Buenos Aires.
