How is OS Online different to my regular, OS Maps?
There will be no change to your existing, fully downloaded, lifetime maps. OS Online can be used instead of, or as well as, your existing, lifetime map purchases.
I've been using this app for over a year now and find it an excellent resource. In the comfort of my home I plan my routes out, plot them in to the app and then use it out in the fields. It is extremely stable, easy to use and keeps a good record of my travels.
Only once have I had to contact the developers about an account issue generated by purchasing something on the free version of the app which doesn't automatically get carried forward on to this, paid GB Parks version. Sure enough the dev solved it and iTunes credited my account.
I would like to see some link in to the Health app in future issues, but that would just be a nice to have, rather than essential.
Great route planner
I use OutDoors for planning local walks with a group of friends who live outside the area.
I am aware of local points of interest but the challenge is to knit those together into an interesting circular route of approximately ten miles.
It’s great to explore the possibilities on the PC and to get an immediate idea of the distance and hill climbing. It’s even better to download the route onto the phone and have an immediate check of where you are using GPS and when you’ve got lost.
OutDoors has added fresh inspiration to route planning and our walking friends have also been impressed.
The new annual subscription for any map is a welcome addition to a great service.
Best mapping app
I use OutDoors every day. It helps me in my profession working as an ecologist and I also use it constantly in my free time. It’s great for planning visits to places I know about, but also for exploring other areas that I know nothing about. The gps and grid ref features are very useful to me because it allows me to record accurately observations I make. The new online unlimited maps is a really good addition and the annual fee seems very reasonable to me. I’ve owned this app for over a year and it just keeps improving. It is the best mapping app I own but a country mile!
