OMN Outdoor Map Navigation Been using this app for over 12 months as such it has had a lot of use. Extremely pleased with my purchase very functional and great to use. Little bit of a learning curve. Would not be without it. About six of my friends have taken the plunge and purchased. All very pleased with it. Highly recommended. You won't be dissapointed.
Pros and cons In comparison to alternatives I have (Backcountry Navigator, OS mapfinder, viewranger, Mytrails etc) : Pros - can store offline maps on SD card; interface above average, symbiosis with PC program makes map purchase easier; easy to know which maps you have bought; HD maps are nice. Can print them out. Cons: can't import or export tracks into OMN from other sources except via PC; have to manually switch to between 1:25k to 1:50k map (and any other map) as you zoom in and out of which is a bit fiddly; can't buy maps via android so have to do it via PC; track recording and display a bit basic. Overall, better than others for OS maps, and my current best option in UK. I prefer Mytrails in France eg with IGN or free mapping, especially if you have 3/4g there. Mytrails has lost access to OS mapping, sadly.
OMN maps Love this app. Work out routes on my PC or download them from my walking group's web site and then sync them to my Galaxy S5. One point: have to use phone's internal storage and this means 7.8 GB of 16 GB storage taken up. Cant work out how to get maps to display on external sd card. Tip: always use phone or tablet in flight mode as this will save loads of battery life.
Useless outside UK and France? Unless I am missing something there are no maps available outside UK and France.
Outstanding Use it almost every day, never failed. OMN can be a fiddle sometimes but overall thoroughly worth the cost. Recommended.
Not bad, but clunky UI that does not adhere to any of Googles UI guidelines Works, but pretty clunky in use - for instance, the menu button on the phone does not bring up the menu. Fails to adhere to googles guidelines re UI design. One thing that would make this very useful is the ability to print. Simple printing is fine, just let me get what I want to print within an A4 style window on screen, then hit a button. Google cloud print is fine, or enable export to PDF, and hence printing via HP ePrint (which works locally direct to non ePrint printers on same LAN too). Or, better still implement share-with and list HP ePrint/Google Cloud print as targets. Ditto sharing of route on social media.
