I have a problem since the last update. After using the app (which works fine) then closing it when I've finished, the app is restarting in the background and turning on the GPS which in turn is draining the battery. I have to reboot the phone or block location permission to stop it. Annoying! Any chance you can investigate and fix. (Android V6.0)
This was working well. Unfortunately the latest version has "negatively upgraded" so that the grid reference is off the bottom of the screen. It still tells me I am in square SU but I could be in Wimborne Minster or 87 miles away in Amersham. So until this is rectified it is not worth having.
For an official OS app offered to compliment OS paper maps, this really should report altitude relative to the Newlyn datum, i.e. mean sea level around the UK (like the maps). It doesn't. It reports relative to the WGS84 ellipsoid, which is approx 40m lower. Bit of an oversight by the developers.
Basically it's inaccurate. Out by 40 m and 30 degrees. It's a novelty only but useless when you need a compass. Update: And some apps notify when a calibration is needed. This does not. Also another app i use is accurate regarding height ie agrees with my OS map. Why is it not possible to generate accurate data? Same phone same location different app? now 2 star rating as at least there was a response to my feedback. thank you.
More awful ordnance survey coding. Their maps are brilliant but whoever codes their apps and the management responsible need to find other careers, awful buggy rubbish.
Handy app. However I would like to see a "checking in" button (like a personal location beacon) on the main screen where you can pre program a contact instead of having to share.
