How to use GPS data

The Android and iPhone apps, and GPS devices like the Satmap 20, work while you are out walking as the maps are stored on your device, i.e. they don't use 'data', and you don't need a signal (in practise, even with 4G, you will rarely have a signal while out walking.)

Orux Maps

android

Orux Maps is a cheap Android map app. Use it with OpenStreetMap mapping (free). How to do this.

Its a bit over-complicated to use. There is a free version on the Oruxmaps website.

Easy to use. Works with our KML files.
