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.
With this map installed on your device there is never any need for an internet connection enabling you to access the map anywhere and at anytime.
♦ ANNOTATING THE MAP
You can now add places of interest, routes and even 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. Updated for iPhone 5 display
2. Now a universal app that runs on iPhone and iPad
Nearly perfect app. Shame.
I really wanted to give this the full five star monty but alas, frustrating and fundamental flaws put paid to that. This map will not recognise some pretty major streets i.e. High Street Hornsey. It exists as that name and physical signs bolted onto buildings confirm this. Not on this A-Z app though. You have to type in 'high street' and scroll through a raft of ones you dont want in order to fond the one you do. Also, if you know the 'sound' of the street but unsure about the spelling, you are in for a frustrating time. The app won't 'predict' and help you out. Spelling must be PERFECT as this app won't give you closest option. However, credit where its due. It is invaluable if you use maps. Super quick to find what you want, where you are and where you want to go. So, well done boys and girls at A-Z
Just like an atlas, but better!
What a great app. We bought this A to Z thinking that it was going to be like the book but it is even better. You can zoom in to all streets and navigate anywhere in Greater London. All postcodes, hospitals and train stations are all included and much more. Would definitely recommend this excellent app to anyone!
No wifi No problem
This app saved me during the tube strikes today. I don't have roaming wifi with my iPad but the gps which is intergrated within this app allowed me to plan the best route and I could clearly see when I'd made a wrong turn as I walked along. A-z maps are good but the gps makes this a great buy.
