Reviews for OS Maps 12 months recurring subscriptionAdd a review
- “Excellent, good fun and value”
I have been using this for years alongside my Garmin GPS. The detailed mapping is excellent to plot routes or find routes saved by others. Can download areas to use off line wherever I go. Able to share planned routes with friends via E mail. Very good value too. Can see my account and saved routes and use the mapping and downloads on laptop, tablet and phone. Good to save tracks as I go and then see them on map using 'Fly through' option. Snowdon looked amazing on 'Fly Through', particularly as I only saw clouds and rain on the walk!
- “Great value”
I've had a renewing subscription for 4 or 5 years now. Having access to all the latest 1:50k and 1:25k maps makes this outstanding value.
I generally find that the iOS app works well but wouldn't rely on it as a sole navigation aid. That's nothing against OS Maps but rather my view on any electronic tool. I will usually have my Garmin with older OS 1:50k maps installed plus a paper map and a compass. But I've found it reliable with cached map downloads where there has been patchy mobile reception.
- “Super system that I use frequently”
Great for meandering about the lanes on the bike and for finding my way in town as well. I also just enjoy looking at a map so when somewhere is mentioned I find the place and know about it. Apple maps may one day make this unnecessary but not in my lifetime I think. I don't use it for route plotting or use the new features. It just saves me carry a map about and allows me to find my location instantly. Perfect really!
