Mine is more of a 'Marketing' one which I was talking to them about today.
Most of the 'off the shelf' maps are in the region of 99, which is quite a lot if you are only intending to do a walk once in a lifetime, ie The Pennine Way. I would like to see a loan/hire system offered whereby, you deposit your 99 with them via a credit card , and they refund the balance on return of the SD card, (after they deduct the weekly 'hire' charge maybe) Something along these lines I believe would open up the market considerabl more for them.

It would indeed be a first for electronic mapping and one that would be very welcome when you only want a 25K scale map for a few days or week, great idea if it is within the OS scheme of things in terms of licences and something that SatMap would consider etc - I hope you enjoyed the show - Mike

Knowing how onerous the OS licensing restrictions are I suspect this would not be possible.

However, nothing to stop some form of trading scheme operating here? Buy the map, use it then offer it here for cost minus a suitable sum say 15%?
