Changes to the maps begin at Segment 8, and are significant through Seg 11. The maps covering Seg 12 and beyond to the NM line are all somewhat different from the last version, but except for Segs 14-16 are very close to the originals in terms of content. For practical purposes, it would probably be simpler to reprint all of the maps from Seg 8 - 18, than to try matching old maps with new, esp. since map #'s and coverages will vary.
The current maps match the current guidebook descriptions, or will soon. No further map updates are expected through this spring. The water chart is current, and should jive with the maps, including the new route in Segs 14-16.
I'm currently in PHX, heading out to the Santa Teresa Wilderness tomorrow. We'll see if I can find the missing link at long last! If that works out, I'd probably have to recommend the main route in Seg 8 - worth it despite the slow-go.

Brett - I've been comparing the old maps to the new ones to see where I
need to reprint if we go out to hike the sections from Mammoth to
Safford or Alma. Did you revise the overview maps 3-5 as well? Are
you planning to revise the water list to reflect the new route?
