Memory-Map have produced a special combination, of selected Ordnance Survey digital maps, the Memory-Map 5 software, and a number of predefined walking routes from Country Walking and Trail magazines. These are all packaged onto a single CD priced at 24.95 and are suitable for outdoor enthusiasts of all skills and capabilities.

These predefined routes consist of 2 icons linked to further information. There is an "I" icon and a "R" icon. The I icons are linked to pdf files which are the magazine route cards. The R icons are linked to memory-map routes. These routes can of course be downloaded to your GPS or PDA and printed as normal.

I purchased the disk at weekend and have it running on the Laptop and my Acer N35 with the GPS enabled. What a product, just need to save up and get the maps for the rest of the Country. If you only wish the coverage of the National Parks what a great buy, If you want more it is a good start, but can be expensive, but could be worth while. Got to save my pocket money Laughing and get the maps for the rest of Great Britain. Oh Happy walking.

Sounds very useful, what does it need or integrate with on the pda? Does the map use a lot of space?

To intergrate with the PDA you just need the MS syc software.
Regards the size of the maps you can download a whole map which for the national parks is approx 25 - 30 Meg or you can just download the screen size. I have also got the Northern England which is much bigger at around 630 Meg but again you can just download an area. It also allows you to download direct to the memory card via a card reader to speed the process up. Hope that answers the question about the needs and map sizes.

Sorry, the software disk also has a little application on to run on the PDA which allows the map to be read and displayed.
