Northern Ireland is not included. The Isle of Man is included only at 1:250,000 (free) and 1:50,000 (paid).

Since 2010, Britain's national mapping agency Ordnance Survey has released a large amount of free map data. UK Map makes much of that data available in a single app. It includes 1:1M MiniScale® and 1:250k road maps, which are built into the app, and 1:25k district maps and 1:10k street maps for the entire country which you can download in 5km by 5km tiles. As the free O.S. data does not include footpaths, this app superimposes footpaths derived from volunteer-collected data from These downloads are free of charge.

In addition to the free maps, you can also purchase and download 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 maps that are just like the Ordnance Survey paper maps. You can also purchase 1:10,000 maps for selected urban areas which show more detail than the free 1:10,000 maps.

Once you've downloaded the detailed maps that you need, an internet connection is not required.

The app can load GPX files (for example, from websites, other apps and from nearby devices via AirDrop) and display waypoints, tracks and routes. You can also mark waypoints, plan routes and record tracks within the app, and export them.

You can view graphs of altitude or speed along recorded tracks and routes.

The app has a 3D mode that lets you view the terrain from any viewpoint, useful for visualising hills and mountains.

The app also includes a searchable gazetteer containing over 250,000 place names, 850,000 street names and 1.6 million post codes. All of this data is built in to the app, so this search also works when there is no network connection.

The app also supports the compass and GPS - on those devices that have them - to display your position, orientation and altitude.

Hiking in the UK you need this app

Since walking the Coast to Coast in 2012nI have been using this app for my annual hikes in the UK. I use it on my iPad Pro to plan hikes and then use my iPhone on the hikes for navigation. The older OS Open Map Local and Street View maps are useful but you can also, through in app purchases, buy updated OS maps. The 3D view helps one get a better idea of the ups and downs of the terrain. One can import walking maps from other sources or draw one’s own. During a walk it can be recorded and after turned into a track. There are graphs to show height and distance of each walk.

Over the almost 10 years this app has been available many improvements and features have been added. And should you run into an anomaly Phil is very responsive in supporting his product.

All around my favourite hiking tool.

A boon for walking tours

I am preparing for my third walking visit to the UK (2013). Last year, UK Maps was a great help in planning my walks into Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor. This year, I'll be finding my way to several fishing streams in Scotland. Once again, this app has been an invaluable assistant for planning (and dreaming). I remember the weight and bulk of the Ordnance Survey maps I had to pack on my trip to Wales in '96, before the days of tablets and smartphones.... All these great maps stored in just one of many travel apps on my iPad which will be tucked into my backpack. It doesn't get any better than this!
