AUGMENTED REALITY (AR)

In the OS Maps app

New Augmented Reality (AR) mode

See beyond the map with augmented reality (AR) in the OS Maps app. Pan the landscape with your phone or tablet camera to find out what’s nearby including hills and mountains, forest and woodland, transport, towns and villages and coast and water.

It works even without a phone signal - ideal for those remote peaks. If you do have a data connection you can also press on a label to get additional local area information with routes, places to stay and local images from GetOutside.

Available now in the OS Maps app, exclusively for Premium Users. To subscribe for the best price buy in the OS shop here for only £19.99 and then download the app on Apple iTunes or Google Play.

'Slick, fun and brilliantly useful.'
