pocketgpsworld.comThe guys at RouteBuddy have been busy this month. Hot on the heels of the 1.1 release of Atlas for iPhone comes news of the availability of Ordnance Survey maps of Great Britain at 1:250k and 1:50k scales.

These maps allow iPhone users access to complete details OS maps of the entire UK.

The 1:250k map is available at 7.99 for the whole of Great Britain or as one of eight regional maps at 3.99 per region.

The 1:50k map gives much more detailed coverage with the whole of Great Britain coming in at 99.99 and regional maps, again available in eight regions available at 39.99 each.

With RouteBuddy Atlas now featuring much better planning and routing support as well as full support for GPS and iPhone 3GS compass it is fast becoming a very useful tool. RouteBuddy have committed to continuous improvements to the application based on user feedback and requests and it is unique on the iPhone as being the only off-line solution for viewing Ordnance survey maps.

As a bonus, if you own RouteBuddy for Mac OS X then you can also view the same maps on your Mac.

Wow. It's been an expensive week - but I couldn't resist the whole of GB at 1:50,000. Downloaded last night and had a quick play today and it all seems really good. Time to get the old Memory Map maps onto eBay.

Only problem I have noticed so far (and I'm sure it's me not RouteBuddy) is that where I have a few 1:25,000 maps I would have expected to see those rather than the 1:50,000. But the 1:50,000 GB map seems to stop the 1:25,000 displaying. I can only see them if I turn the new GB map off.

Other than that it's a great product.

Oh my Hat, I have been waiting for this for a while. The problem is I will have to find space for the national map, that is the down side of an 8GB iphone. When does my O2 contract run out? and I can upgrade to a 16- 3GS.

The latest version of the Atlas software really is beginning to up the ante, hopefully with all the other tweaks that RB have in the pipe line, this is going to become a very important piece of kit especially for we Mac users who have been desperate for a good link between portable gps and the desktop.

So which region do I go for? or do I dump most of my tunes and go National? Wink

A bargain at that price for full 1:50k coverage. And hats off to the team at RouteBuddy who, true to their word, are adding more and more features to the Atlas app with each release.

It took a while to copy the 1:50k map to my iPhone and even on my 16Gb 3GS I had to make some room but then I have got a dozen nav apps installed!

You are quite correct it is very good value, Actually I'm in the middle of the download now. You're right it does take a while!
What really is good value is the 1 to 250k @ 7.99, I have used this well and it gives a very good overall view of your location when using another SatNav alongside.
I hope others will discover these benefits as it is nice to be able to see local software chaps getting things together. Roll on version 1.2 Wink
As you say they have been very busy, but if you want something done give it to a busy man!

back to the download

That's all good fun for you iTypes, but what about the rest of us?
Is there anything that will show OS maps that runs under Symbian?

Cheers,

If you've got an iPhone you could always download iOS maps. It's a free app. Although the maps are online ,so you need wi-fi or 3G, it still works pretty well for me. Very Happy
