Important notes on the OS MapFinder app

Why is it so big?
The app is a large download as it is designed to be used even when you are offline. Included in the app is overview mapping for all of Great Britain, plus the ability to search for towns, cities, postcodes and places of interest without a mobile signal. Please ensure your device has sufficient free space and you are connected via WiFi before beginning the download.

Free and paid map tiles
Overview mapping for the whole country plus a sample tile for Exeter is included. Additional map tiles at 1:50 000 scale and 1:25 000 scale are available as in-app purchases. Each map tile is 100 km2 and is downloaded locally for offline use. You can synchronise map tiles purchases between different devices on the same Amazon/Kindle account, but not between Android and iOS devices.

Crashes and other issues
If you do experience issues such as the application not starting or crashing, first try closing it and restarting your device. If this fails, please try deleting and re-installing the app. We’ve found that some users who download the app on poor WiFi connections may have issues with corrupt files, so where possible ensure you have a good WiFi connection before downloading again. If you are still having problems, please submit the crash report or contact customer services. There are also FAQs available on our website.
