What does it do?
Full route planning, path following, track recording and peak-identifying app, bringing to bear all the Ordnance Survey’s mapping, and the simple, sensible interface you’d expect from the world’s leading mapping agency. The app continues to add features like the My Activities cumulative mileage logger and the latest Augmented Reality route visualiser (which plots your planned route on a 3D model of the landscape you explore by moving your phone) without cluttering or confusing the core functionality. With its partner desktop app it’s the peerless digital mapping experience for most use cases.
Ease of use
To follow a route it’s a doddle to plot on the big screen of your PC, sync it to your phone, and let it lead. To track your daily miles, just tap Record a route > Walking, then tap the big red button.
