- “Great app”
This is a great app and very useful whilst on the move.
However my auto renewal has come round but I cannot change the bank account. What happens now?
- “The superb & familiar OS maps on a screen.”
I use a Garmin etrex 20 with open source mapping which is very good, but I believe that for for detail and accuracy the OS 1.25k maps are the best on a digital screen. I still use the etrex along with OS on my smart phone & find they compliment each other very well indeed. If I lose my way in unfamiliar terrain though, then it is the OS mapping I look to.
The OS app system has a few idiosyncrasies, but it is the lovely & familiar OS mapping which stands out for me every time. I create routes on my desk top PC, save them, & then download onto my phone for offline use, then follow them in airplane mode, while hiking. I have found them to be very accurate and trust what I see on my screen...I print a tile of the route off on paper and occasionally refer to it to get "the big picture" while hiking. I think the cost is very reasonable.
I actually cancelled my continuous membership as I was having a few problems at first, but since changing my phone I have changed my mind and I believe this app is working much better now on my more up to date Android phone. I will more than likely be renewing my membership, expecially as I am creating quite a collection of some very nice circular routes and saving them on my phone, for use time and again.
- “Bit clunky ”
I love OS maps and so was thrilled to find I could get an app for my iPad. However, I find it a bit clunky to navigate. Having said that it’s still great to have maps at my finger tips.
