Tortoise on postbox You see some strange things on walks, unexplained things. Skeletons in phone boxes, dancing begging bears, yesterday the lifesize lower half of a terracotta warrior, and now this. Some sort of statement perhaps on the speed of the post? Maidenhead to Marlow

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.

The best bit is the 'you are here' symbol on the map! Also, taking a powerbank with you is highly recommended!

To test

Apps - OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap is a global free alternative to OS maps. It's more accurate in places, but doesn't have rights of way information. Brilliant for when you go on holiday!

Maps.me

Easy to use. Works with our KML files. Doesn't have contours.

Orux Maps

android
