Id not realised they were printable, that's pretty good.

But, I'd just be slightly cautious that it's not distinguishing between types of paths, i.e. what's red or yellow on the map.

There's also no grid. That's actually the same as the current SwissTopo Online version but it's not good. I think Wanderland might want to think about that. One important function of a map is to be able to tell people where you are and you need a grid for that. Obviously GPS can do that but you ought to be able to pinpoint your position on a map and give it to emergency services.
