This app is brilliant but does crash a lot! One thing that would be better is if the Routes section included presets for long distance paths such as Welsh Coastal Path etc, and if you could track where you have walked in say a different colour.
"Buy Maps" option is missing which is present in Apple's iPhone version. I don't need a subscription and don't want to buy first a paper map to redeem its code. Otherwise an app with a strong potential to get 5 stars when all the other flaws in recent reviews have been eliminated. Excellent that you can also view maps and prepare tracks on a PC, something most competitors don't offer.
Hopeless. It assumes everyone knows how to use this app. There is no explanation anywhere to help users. 4 of us have just wasted 30 minutes trying to work it out. Helpline wasn't answered.
I've recently installed it on my Samsung S8 and it keeps crashing, it's fine on my tablet. Pity, because I walk a lot and I would use it loads, but to be honest, because of the constant crashing it's useless.
Free maps are higher resolution than the pay for ones. Only advantage of the pay for maps are rights of way, pubs and toilets etc. are marked. The one month purchase option is actually a subscription which is not made clear. Disappointing tactic from a great British institution.
We all know OS maps are great but this App has two major flaws - firstly it uses a LOT of battery even when not in active use, for example today I opened it once to check my location, it must have carried on running in the background & used 34% of battery! More than the display, doing what?! Secondly, it has an annoying pop up when it loses data - this is an offline map program, when I'm out and about I rarely have signal, why does it need data and more to this point why does it need to tell me - often 3-4 times - before I can access the map?! These are such basic faults I'm surprised they are yet to be addressed.
* A fix for redeeming paper maps on device – now shows all maps redeemed.
* Redeemed maps may be slow on some devices, which we hope to address soon.
We are continually working on enhancements to the application to provide you the best possible experience and welcome feedback.
