This is the briefing map zoomed to maximum on the same area. You can compare the roads, but the lines are not visible. I believe you would have to be very unlucky not to get the right one. Most yards are further apart than these two. The junctions have geographical place names and you can get a pretty good fix on them before you get into the air.

Yes you make some good points there, but it does take some time to work all this out. I must admit that if the briefing screen's reference to those criptic zones could be more specific to the map it would make life easier.
criptic zone notation:

This is a little OT for this thread so I will end my discussion here. We could probably go on quite a bit about the use of paper maps and the techniques to use and it would be a worthwhile topic but maybe another thread would be the place. Thanks for the dialogue it has been instructional and I see your points. The time spent pre-planning the map route is probably more than I can spare as I spend considerable time on the flights and the vids already.
