GPS mode shows coordinates from GPS, offline maps with switchable full screen mode, compass, GPS status and overlay the waypoints over the maps to get distance, bearing and ETA.
GPS mode now equipped dual screen (just swipe top screen) with digital compass and mils, ETA time and minutes, sunrise and sunset time
Manage waypoints mode allows you to create set of waypoints, using maps or manually enter coordinates and use it in GPS mode.
Get Coordinate from Map mode; simple way to get and share various types of coordinates from maps
Compass mode show analogue and digital mode with mils.
Search address for spatial information mode provides ability to search and obtain coordinates for any address and postcode anywhere in the world.
Smart Connect extension for SmartWatch 2
Has ability to copy marker grid reference to the clipboard or to email. Button to toggle map/satellite and button to return the marker to the GPS location of the phone.
There is also a tool to use your current location to find your grid reference, so that this can be used in conjunction with an ordnance survey map.

The app converts GPS location readings from your mobile phone to Ordnance Survey National Grid references, enabling you to determine precisely where you are on an Ordnance Survey map. No mobile signal? No problem; OS Locate does not require a mobile signal to function – the inbuilt GPS system can be relied upon, even in the most remote areas.
Simply download the app and switch on your device’s location services (Settings – Privacy – Location services).
Compass accuracy: the app relies on your device's internal compass and if this is inaccurate the displayed compass will be incorrect as well. Accuracy generally increases the longer you have the app open and many users report moving the device in a figure-eight help calibrate the compass and gives a more accurate reading. Of course, like any compass, keep away from metallic or magnetic objects!
OS Locate is packed with additional features. The ‘Share’ button allows you to connect with friends and family via messaging and social media – let them know where you are, how your adventure is progressing and what time you will be home. Use the handy digital compass to take your bearings – always ensuring you are on the right track. For those who are keen to learn more about maps and navigation, the ‘About’ button hosts a wealth of information including hints and tips and a guide to map reading. In addition, you will find simple yet comprehensive guides on how to use eastings and northings.
OS Locate – know where you are.
OS Locate is a complementary tool for Ordnance Survey paper maps. You should always have an Ordnance Survey paper map and baseplate compass when exploring the great outdoors.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Please ensure your Location Services are turned on.
The application implements a complex Geoid Transformation algorithm, which performs a very accurate transformation of co-ordinates from the ETRS89 system (which is used by GPS) to the OSGB36(TM) system (which is used on OS maps in the UK). The application uses a tailored polynomial interpolation of the reference data tables, and this enables transformations to be calculated to within less than 1m accuracy for the majority of UK co-ordinates.
The application also applies the transformation to the GPS Altitude, and converts it into a grid Height so that the user has an accurate height reading in the same co-ordinate space as used on the map (there can be up to 100m discrepancy between GPS and grid height depending upon location, which could cause problems to anyone attempting to use GPS altitude as a navigation aid in conjunction with a map).
