Used them once
I've used them on a trip to Euope once. Not exactly the best but are certainly good enough for me.

They are ok
Really good maps, for hiking or a bike tour. But what i need in a map is also a UTM Grid or something for a work with a map. Kompass doesnt offer any grid in its map, so nothing for me for serious usage.

Agree with Tommy...
... I have many of Kompass maps and sometimes are not so detailed.

Good maps but...
......not always updated. Some little roads or paths or huts indicated are no more existing or in quite bad conditions / abandoned.
Anyway, on the Alps Kompass maps are very popular.

I prefer the Alpenverein maps - or the ├ľK maps 1:50000
