Reviews for OS Maps 12 month Premium subscriptionAdd a review
- “Great maps with a few bugs on the App.”
Access to both the 1:25,00 and 1:50,000 maps for the whole country is fantastic. I use the Plot Route and Record Route functions for every long walk. With GPS on your phone, the App is paticularly great when you are trying to navigate in forests and very poor visibility. Unfortunately the OS App has loads of problems and updates to resolve these issues are rare despite many users complaining. Total Elevation is always wrong. Saving a recorded route means ignoring error messages. There are loads of other issues but I will still renew my subscription and recomend it to others as the main functions work and so useful. Please fix the bugs and it will be awsome!
- “Record a route while you walk is unreliable (I haven't tried it running or cycling).”
I found the record a route feature unreliable on my Huawei P20 lite, having previously used it reasonably successfully on my Galaxy Note 4. I took out a second subscription for my partner's Samsung A7 and have encountered similar problems. The app simply stops recording your route randomly and it is frustrating to walk all day and then find recording has paused during the day really annoying and I recommend the programmers are dropped somewhere random in say the Brecon Beacons and left to use the App.
The rest of it is very good and value for money but don't forget your spare power for your phone.
