Reviews for OS Maps 12 month Premium subscriptionAdd a review
- “Frustrating app”
I'm about to renew for my subscription for a year, but with some reservations. I have found the support team responsive in that they respond to my comments and questions but not always with a solution. The feature which most irritates me is "Record a Route". Almost always this feature does not record a complete route because, the support team tells me, it is recording a waypoint every second so too soon runs out of space. The advice is to frequently stop recording and save the route so far, meaning a 15 mile hike, for example, becomes a series of short hikes. Why does a "walk" need a waypoint every second? Also, it's not clear from the given reasons for subscribing if I can still use the download from a purchased map if I don't have a subscription.
[Editors note: if you have a map downloaded from a paper map code, this is yours permanently, whether or not you have a Premium subscription. Other types of downloads do need a current subscription]
- “Price per month or price for the year?”
Your webpage does not say whether the cost of a 12 month subscription is the cost for a month or the cost for a year.
- “Step forward”
Love being able to plot walks so easily and see the ascent/descent. Adding in 1:25000 maps and ability to access all UK via the subscription service is great. For me this doesn't replace paper maps as still prefer them when out & about but is a very useful planning tool.
