I suggest that you go to the resources and download the elevation map for the Frances, and strongly consider purchasing the Wise Pilgrim App for your phone. The app has live mapping abilities, and shows all the places to sleep along the route with dropped pins. Brilliant.

Holy Year from Pamplona 2010, SJPP 2011, Lisbon 2012, Le Puy 2013, Vezelay (partial watch this space!) 2014; 2015 Toulouse-Puenta la Reina (Arles)
Some of our fellow Teutonic pilgrims, overwhelmingly brethren, are barking mad in all things concerning elevation and maps. I have seen them walking with 1:50,000 perhaps 1:100000 only elevation and printed on very light and very tightly rolled paper. I never really felt a need for such never desired to carry such but somewhere these maps do exist!

If you're looking for an overall map of the entire Camino(s), Ivar sells a map of Spain and Portugal which shows all the different Camino routes. You can find it here: https://www.santiagodecompostela.me/collections/map-and-map-guides/products/camino-de-santiago-map-1-1-250-000 This is a large, fold-out map printed on waterproof paper. However, it would be easy enough to just use your scissors and cut it down to just your planned route.

On the other hand, if you're just looking for larger scale maps to plan your day-to-day itinerary, any of the printed guidebooks (Brierley, etc) or the on-line guides (Gronze, etc), or smartphone apps (Wise Pilgrim, etc) have suitable maps. Be aware, that there are discrepancies of a few km here and there between the various maps of this sort, none of which amount to a hill of beans in the overall picture IMO. Just a word of unsolicited advice: don't over-plan. Let the spirit guide you once you start walking, and don't lock yourself into pre-planned, pre-reserved accommodations. It's easy to set your goals as you walk, and you can call ahead to make a reservation on the day before, or even on the morning of, each day to reserve a bed. This becomes a bit more necessary after you reach Sarria (or Tui on the Portuguese route), but even then, it is usually not possible to reserve in the municipal or xuntaalbergues.

Buen Camino!

The Reise, Jacobsweg 1:350,000 Spanien, Nord ISBN 978-3-8317-7079-3 www.reise-know-how.de/de/shop?populate=spanien%2C+nord covers most of the Camino Frances (from Pamplona), Norte (from Bayonne) and the Primitivo. Not much use for navigation unless you are the support bus driver but it looks really impressive if you spread it out on the office floor and then say "and thats only half-of-it, wait till I turn it over...".

A friend has one of those atlas-type map books of Spain and Portugal where the pages are roughly A2-sized paper. I copied all the relevant pages for the Camino Frances and taped them together for a map that's approximately .5 meter north-south x 2 meters east-west. That's the biggest I have, and it's pretty impressive when it's rolled out. But you've got me beat with the "wait till I turn it over" comment. I guess you win the bragging rights. :D

I tried more than 10 of Android programs and found "Camino Companion".
You can taste it between SJPP and Pamplona how full version works.
But whole programs price is ridiculous compared to usefulness. My wife is not fond
of programs, but after Pamplona found it precious.
Advantage is: all maps can be loaded in fone and no internet use is needed.

I ordered a National Geographic map of Northern Spain, ISBN 781566 955386 through my local bookstore. Although it doesn't mark the distances between possible “stops” it does have all those wonderful villages you will pass through, as well as other points of interest along the CF. The entire CF is marked in green if you are looking for something with whole route. It also has the Primitivo and the Norte.
