Have you ever wished you could get your Ordnance Survey Explorer maps on your phone? Well now you can. Ordnance Survey are rereleasing their Explorer series of maps with a free mobile download included in your purchase.
How does it work?
When you buy a map which is marked as “Now includes Mobile Download” on the cover, there will be a unique code inside the map (hidden with silver like a scratch card), type in the code to your app and then you can download the app to your phone.
What can you do with the app?
Obviously one of the most helpful functions of a map on your phone, is that you can be sure of where you are! The app will show you your current location, you can plan and save a route for later and you can search for places by name. The maps are saved down to your phone so you don’t need to worry about not having a mobile signal.
Which maps can I buy?
Currently Ordnance Survey have soft launched these new maps by just releasing Britains National Parks and the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but later in 2015 all explorer maps will be available and in 2016 Landranger too!
Don’t forget the map!
It may be very handy to have an OS map on your phone but at Procamping we never travel without a physical paper map, you just don’t know when your phone is going to run out of batteries!
