As for ease of use “on the hill”, it has to be said that the paper maps can be somewhat cumbersome, as they cannot be opened to show every part of the map without fully unfolding – and in a howling gale that can be a very difficult process! – In that respect, the “ingenious foldability” and 100% waterproofing of Harvey Superwalker XT25 range is much superior.
However, with the one exception that Public Rights of Way, (which may or may not exist at all as tracks on the ground), are shown much more prominently than paths that actually do exist on the ground, the mapping is truly superb. – Actual paths are shown as very small black dotted lines, whereas Public Rights of Way are shown much more boldly, as green hashed lines. I personally find that to be a major niggle! – When I’m out on the hills in dense mist, I want to know where the real world paths on the ground are – not where designated public rights of way are!!! – If anything, the actual paths on the ground should be shown more boldly than rights of way!
Having said all that, especially when being viewed from the comfort of an armchair, there is nothing to beat the quality of Ordnance Survey mapping. In my humble opinion, still fully deserving of a five star rating here on Amazon!
The OS policy stinks on this. If you get the map, you can use the code to get a digital copy on their app only. If you want to use another app with OS maps, you have to pay separately. That's just not OK.
It's made even more not OK by the fact that the OS app is terrible. I'm not reviewing the app here, but after trying to use it on a week in the Lakes I know that I need to get a different, decent app. That means I'll be paying again for the map. If I get more maps in that app, I won't get the paper copy which is essential for safety in the mountains.
Ordnance Survey - yet another organisation which is managing to completely screw up it's transition to the digital age.
This map promises not to get me lost as I run naked round the lakes this coming mid summer fest
