Still needs development Better than before, gpx import actually works, and the interface is better. The maps are unbeatable, but pricy. Bad bits.. The screen jumps between overview/1:50000/1:25000 as you zoom, it needs an option to lock map type. Finally it will only load one gpx at a time, it needs an option to group routes by type, and load all. Finally a satellite image layer would be good..
No Updates Hasn't been updated in a year and a half despite many bugs needing fixes. OS have launched a new map app and it seems like this has been abandoned but all the purchased tiles I've spent money on are not transferable!
Good maps, bad app Obligatory 600Mb of road maps means I'll have to uninstall this as I don't have much space. Why not make the offline road map optional? I can only think the lack of effort OS has put into this app is because they underestimate the potential demand. People love the clarity, detail and general look of OS maps and would be prepared to pay for them if the app were a bit better!
Not happy Installed as a friend had the app, looked useful with the purchase of regional maps being cheap enough (about £11) to offset the large download. Turns out you can no longer buy regional maps, just much smaller tiles at 69p each. To get the same coverage as a regional map will cost a fortune at roughly £140!
Useless on a Moto G (or any phone with limited storage). App cannot be moved to SD - an absolute showstopper. Initial download alone takes 750 MB, more than 10% of total user available storage - and you did not even buy a single map at this stage. Will uninstall immediately after posting this review.
Doesn't work but good idea I have bought four map tiles and tried to download them and got the message "cannot download at this time" over and over again. Support were not willing to do anything and were disbelieving of the whole thing despite all the detail i gave them.
-Fixed route export bug
-Tutorial text and images made clearer
-Corrected crashing bug appearing on devices running Gingerbread
We have investigated an issue and have found that the Android 4.4 (KitKat) platform does not correctly open offline maps. Google’s engineers are aware, and we are hopeful of an update.
