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

KML for Maps.me

The maps.me app has recently been sold. The latest version, at least on Apple, seems to have problems. Best not to install/upgrade the app for the moment.

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

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.
