It’s proved a hit for iOS devices following its launch earlier this year and subsequent update in April and is a great addition to our digital portfolio of products for outdoor enthusiasts.
We’ve incorporated many of the features the iOS version of OS MapFinder boasts including the option to both import and export routes and have also added the feature for Android users to be able to lock orientation on the app. Many other features are still in development for the Android version and we’re already looking forward to bringing you the first update!
OS MapFinder is a must have mapping app for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Users can easily share between OS MapFinder and OS getamap, with over 250,000 routes uploaded in OS getamap, there is already plenty to explore. If you are planning a holiday or day trip then explore the area in added detail with OS MapFinder. We look forward to hearing customer feedback as we have with the iOS version and enhance the Android app in the future.
The OS MapFinder app is free to download from here and includes free overview mapping for the whole of Great Britain. When you’ve downloaded the app, it allows you to purchase and download more detailed map data for outdoor use.
A unique feature of the fast and easy to use app is the tile download facility, which provides users with the ultimate freedom to choose the maps they want. All maps are stored on the device, meaning they can be used even without a Wi-Fi or mobile signal, improving reliability and the experience of using the maps outdoors. OS MapFinder allows users to record or draw their walking, cycling or running routes, adding photos and commentary along the way.
