What's New in Version 4.4
NEW: OS Map prices reduced by 50%.
OutDoors interface updated for iOS7
Resolved an issue with the login prompt repeatedly appearing in the in-app store.
Essential for hiking
Using this app has transformed my enjoyment of the countryside- there is simply no need, with the app, to even pause. Just pull it out- 2 secs to find location- point iphone until your lined up with the route line and go. Battery will support an all day hike easily if you turn everything off. Even when a take my mountain bike out- I can usually just glance down to check direction. It's awesome.
Now you can basically rent an area- like a county- which is saving me a bunch. Simple to use too.
Whilst some people may be impressed to have a quality map on screen, the app is separate to what you view.
I've had this app for some time had use it often. Unfortunately, once you start paying money out for OS maps in it, you are stuck with it.
You cannot import or export GPX/KML tracks unless you use the website from a PC. This is pretty ridiculous and makes it near impossible to get your tracks pushed between apps.
The rest of the app is very basic and the layout is poor. There is very limited functionality, and what you only really get is something for people who buy one app a year and still have a desk and PC at home.
Great app focussed on UK only - neat map builder with an extremely easy interface to manage your maps and dowload new regions - much cheaper than OS direct and incomparable with buying a paper map - Following a route and drilling down to what looks like 20m detail is suitable for practically anything - nice one!
