Ratings and Reviews
Still the best of the bunch but re-downloading maps when subscription auto-renews needs fixing...
I've been using this app since the iPhone 3GS. It's always been way better than the official OS app.
Stability, mapping implementation, functionality and power consumption are all superb.
Only 1 complaint and 1 suggestion.
It's really annoying having to re-download maps when the subscription rolls over.
I've had a week of nags to renew subscription. As this is set to auto-renew in my appleID there is no way to invoke the renewal manually. Today I loaded up the app and all my maps apart from those downloaded in the last few days have gone. The old lifetime-purchase maps reappear on refreshing the store, but all have to be redownloaded as well as more recent OS unlimited downloads.
As I'm currently away from home with patchy 3G at best this is a slow process!
iPhone SE and iPad mini3 cellular.
Up-to-date iOS and app versions.
And my suggestion.... Give an option of OS Opendata for the 1:25k/1:10k zoom in.
The proper 1:25k detail is almost airways best - for field boundaries etc - but the road/house/farm name detail and more recent survey info on Opendata would be great to view in the app.
The best phone mapping tool
I use this app for MTB and hiking route mapping and navigation. It’s fab.
I find and plan my own routes using the website route builder. Also import GPX routes other people have created or I’ve paid for and keep them private for my own use.
If you pay for the online OS map subscription you can log on whilst on WiFi it 3/4G and move in and out of the route map area to cache the tiles for when you’re out of signal range.
I love that you move between 25k and 50k when zooming in as I would never buy both before and try make do with 25k. I also use google maps and google satellite when route planning. Having all these map tools at your disposal makes it very clear.
Personally if I’m going to be doing a lot of complex route navigation in a wilderness area, I still buy the offline map for reassurance.
Yes, you need to either buy OS maps for the area you’re going to or pay for the unlimited access. You can’t rely on free google maps when you’re in the middle of the countryside halfway up a mountain!
Yes, navigation is battery intensive. Screen + gps + searching for signal in poor signal areas is battery intensive. Take a power pack with you.
Now even better
I have had this app for several years and over multiple devices. I now have it on iPhone and iPad Pro. The offline mapping is excellent and layers nicely. For example the road map when expanded moves to 1:50,000 and then to 1:25,000 (if you have bought the maps, obviously). Recently I had issues after iOS 11 and the team were really helpful. An update and a reinstall put the app back together. Last week I was in Snowdonia and then the Lakes and used the app on both devices as my navigation tool in the hills. Quicker and clearer than my garmin as a location checker on the high mountains, and perfect for a mountain day out. Clearly for multiple days a source of power would be required. Awesome app.
