OS Mapfinder for iOS

Apple App Store Logo for OS Mapfinder

All your routes, all your adventures – mapped.


The MapFinder app will remain for customers to use and access their purchased map tiles but unfortunately will no longer be updated with new features and content. For the latest and most up to date app from Ordnance survey see OS Maps. This new app also allows customers to download a digital version of their paper map and subscribe to see all of the GB Ordnance Survey leisure maps. OS Maps won the Digital Product of the year 2017 from the Outdoor Industry Association.

Please note: OS Maps and The MapFinder are not compatible and therefore purchases cannot be transferred between the apps.
