  • Good App, but don’t subscribe in app

    Like this app for the rights of way and download map feature (which worked fine for our trip), but subscribe through the website and not in the app. A one month subscription through the app ran out on the last day of the month (after only 2 weeks) and not after 30 days. The in app subscription also didn’t reflect in our account on the website. Subscribing instead through the website also works for the app and it lasts for the appropriate amount of time from activation (you might also be able to find a discount code for it).
  • Duplicating expense

    I bought maps in TheMapFinder. Now I have to buy them again? No thanks
  • Quits repeatedly with large custom offline maps

    Created a custom map of most of Pembrokeshire (250K) for an upcoming hike. Once it finished downloading, I zoomed in and out, scrolled, etc. It only took a few seconds for OS Maps to quit. I tried again with similar results. A separate custom online map of SE Wales had the same trouble. I had fewer problems with paper map downloads (OS maps that have a digital activation code). This makes me think that OS Maps was not thoroughly tested with large offline maps (>250K). I will make sure that I carry paper maps for now.
  • Really useful

    I got this app just before starting out on a week-long walking holiday and was a little unsure about it as I love paper maps . It was incredibly useful. As we walked in the rain and on top of windy cliffs it was much easier to use the app than do battle with a paper map. It can be used offline so internet connection isn't vital. The image quality is excellent. It doesn't get blurry when you zoom in or out. I like the feature that shows you exactly where you are and that you can record your routes and distances. The only slight issue I have with it is if you have it set to record your route and then try to move the map to see where you are heading (or zoom out) the map automatically centres back on your current location. But all in all a great addition to the OS range.
  • Released with fatal bugs

    In July of 2016 I used this app for walks in the Yorkshire Dales. I had planned the trip carefully, researching walk routes on the Internet, and downloaded about a dozen offline maps, a key feature of the app, designed so you can view a map in a wilderness area without data connectivity. The maps saved ok, but I discovered when I tried to use them, that if I loaded a saved route on top of an offline map, it would crash immediately.. On my first walk I had to abandon the app altogether and use a paper map. Later I discovered I could use the app if I loaded the map I needed for the upcoming walk using wifi in my hotel. As long as I didn't save it, it would persist in cache and I could load saved routes on top of it. So I finished the trip using the App that way. That's why a 2* rating. When I contacted customer support after my trip to report the problem, they admitted this was a known bug if you save more than "3 or 4" offline maps.
