How to use GPS data

You can load these GPS data files into:

  • an Android or iPhone GPS smartphone or tablet (with the right app),
  • a walker's dedicated GPS device, e.g. Satmap or Garmin
  • a PC / Mac application (e.g. Google Earth)

The Android and iPhone apps, and Satmap 12, work while you are out walking as the maps are stored on your device, i.e. you don't need a signal (in practise, even with 4G, you will rarely have a signal while out walking.)
