Must have for hiking in the UK
If you’re going hiking in the UK and not taking this app on your smartphone then you are a fool.
Definitely worth the cost of the premium version to get access to the detailed maps and offline maps.
OS maps always had amazing accuracy and detail - now you can use gps on your phone to see exactly where you are among all that detail.
Great for planning free form hikes to get you off the beaten path.
Only thing the app can’t tell you is the condition of the trail or footpath you are going to hike on - huge clumps of stinging nettles are a real thing - but you can use the app to replay your hike on the fly to avoid whatever you encounter that you don’t want to deal with.
All this for less than the cost of a single paper map - it’s a bargain!
Keep on Trekkin'
We use OS Maps app all across the UK @TrekEpic, love it!!! Can't wait for our next walk!
Not serious about safety
The app developers are pretty casual with their users’ safety. Offline maps are an important safety tool on a hike and if you can’t rely on them being available (or if they’re not available at all zoom levels), it can be a risk to use them on a hike. Given that this is basically a government funded endeavour, it’s terrible how careless they are.
