GPX for most apps and handhelds, including OS Maps & Orux

KML for Maps.me

Older Garmins : it seems some Garmin's cannot import the "routes" we use in our GPX files. We are considering a GPX "track" version.

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!

Apps - OS maps

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 free

android iPhone

Maps.me is a free Android and iPhone app. It uses OpenStreetMap maps, which are also free.

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

Orux Maps free

android

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

Excellent, but over-complicated to use. There is a free version on the Oruxmaps website.

Other Options

Dedicated GPS Devices

Satmap Active 20

GPS Device

Very good but very expensive
