Swansea is a city and principal area in southern Wales.


The map is very good from Southgate in the west to Mumbles and West Cross in the east, all south of the line of the B4436. The map is also very good to the south side of the A4118 Gower Road between Upper Killay and the city centre. Coverage is fair for about 1km north of the A4118 between Sketty and the city centre. East of the city centre the map is fairly good across St. Thomas and Port Tennant. Coverage gets increasingly sparse north of the A4118 west of the Tawe and north of St. Thomas east of the river.
