This clear colourful and high quality map covers the whole of the Greater London area down to street level. The familiar look of this map makes it by far the easiest London map to use. The map is drawn by real cartographers with the detailed care and human touch of emphasis that A-Z are famous for.
The map covers 3743 sq km (1445 sq miles) of London down to street level, the same area as the printed version of the Master Atlas of Greater London and extends beyond the Greater London and M25 area to Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Potters Bar, Waltham Cross, Epping, Brentwood, Thurrock, Stanford-le-Hope, Gravesend, Wrotham, Sevenoaks, Westerham, Oxted, Redhill, Reigate, Leatherhead, Great Bookham, Woking, Egham, Windsor, Slough, Chalfont Street Peter, Chorleywood and Bovingdon.
The map index contains over 300,000 entries with nearly 100,000 streets, over 200,000 postcodes, plus thousands of places of interest, hospitals and rail stations. All can be located on this high quality map within a few seconds using the search feature or by browsing the index. The search now reaches out to the internet for additional selections when an internet connection is available.
The map installs completely on the device so that it is available instantly anywhere and with no internet connection..
ANNOTATING THE MAP
You can now add places of interest, routes and areas to the map. This is a very simple yet powerful feature that allows the user to quickly and easily customise their map. This is also a great benefit to anyone planning routes as it instantly displays the distance for the complete route. These annotations can be stored and retrieved instantly on the device.
You can use your device’s inbuilt location services to show your current location on the map or follow your movements as you travel.
Add this map to one of our “Zuti” route planner maps and you are well equipped to travel anywhere in the Greater London area.
What's New in Version 1.1
1. Latest mapping from A-Z
2. Improved large scale resolution
The app is much better now, compared to the previous version. You can now zoom further in without the map blurring. The search command has also been improved. Okay so it's another £5 but you can't expect them to update the map to the latest version for free. Just think, if you owned the book version, you wouldn't get a newer copy free. So why were people expecting to get a free upgrade?
It is clear that the map has been updated to the 2016 version, as new roads, etc are evident on the map. So in my opinion, this is well worth another £5. In addition to the latest mapping, the app's features and compatibility have also been vastly improved.
Unlike some off the reviews here, I don't mind paying again. I'm sure a lot of work has gone into this. The new retina map is perfect in almost every way. I love the way it zooms in and doesn't rebound like the previous app.
However, like some have said, it's truly awful how many taps you require to pin a route and even harder to delete ****Please fix this guys. Revert to the way it was done before, also could you make the line thicker as well, it doesn't matter what colour you do, it's really hard to see it.
Overall a great new edition. 3 out 5.
Gutted about the new changes made!
Had this App for nearly a year but unfortunately none of the helpful updates that have been suggested by myself and others have been implemented.
This is what I wrote nearly a year ago.
After two years of using the old map (and NO updates) I again paid £5 for this App.
This note is for anyone doing the Knowledge, I.M.O. don't buy this App until the designers make it a lot easier to make a line/route (Point to Point.)
It is now a very time consuming thing to do so this means I still use the old very outdated version I bought over two years ago.
As before this is a great map design but until they make P2P better don't waste your money if your doing the K?
IF they were to change the problems (like the to thin lines/markers and a lot of messing around trying to do so,) I will only give this App 1/5 but if they were to revert back to the old much better/easier way I would give it 4 maybe 5/5 but at the moment I feel I have wasted a fiver because I never use it.
