Great Britain Maps for Smartphones and Tablets
When the Ordnance Survey  released its Opendata product in 2010 it was a great advance but still lacking in quality compared to Landranger and Explorer products. I have merged this data with OS contour data and footpath data from Open Street Map to make a product specifically designed for loading into Smartphone applications. The digital map is copied to the device and used offline with no data charges. There is no limit to the number of devices on which you can use it. You are also free to print or publish from this mapping with the requirement that you include the messages at the base of this page and that this requirement be also passed on. These maps are very good value :  Landranger maps are, typically, four times the price from a company such as Memory-map.

The mapping covers the whole of Great Britain  - Northern Ireland is not covered by the Ordnance Survey. It is broken down into seven overlapping sections to keep each file less than 2GB.  The files can be immediately used with Locus, RMAPS, Maverick and Back Country Navigator apps on Android and with Galileo GPS on iPhones and iPads. Free software - Mobile Atlas Creator available for Windows, Linux and MACs - will convert the data into a range of other formats for applications on Android, iOS (Apple), Symbian, Garmin and Magellan (see the last line of the Mobile Atlas Creator readme.htm for how to do this). MAPC2MAPC will allow you to view these maps (Utilities>View SQLITEDB map) and load, draw, edit and save GPX Tracks and Routes.

These maps are available for sale only to the UK and to countries outside the EU.

These maps are also available in OZI Explorer OZF2 format : click here for more details

These maps are also available by subscription with the MyTrails Android app with a free 24-hour trial.

With these maps and applications you will (except in deep woods and gorges) be able to see where you are, where you have been and plot where you are going.

Read here why hiker, bikers, geocachers and others should consider a Smartphone instead of a GPS unit.
