CompuMap is by far your best option for learning the bus (colectivos) system to get around Buenos Aires. It is also your best option for a map. Here is a list of things you can do with CompuMap:
- finding a direction
- which colectivo to take to get somewhere
- the entire route a colectivo takes
- references/landmarks (such as hospitals. There aren´t too many references to start out, but you can add your own).
- getting a postal code
I have put together a quick list of the hotkeys you can use to navigate around CompuMap. It is important to know these so you can take full advantage of the features available on CompuMap. You can use the mouse for most of these, but the hotkeys are much quicker. There is a help section in the CompuMap program, but it is all in Spanish.
Let click – zoom in
Right click – zoom out
