/ iPhone GPS
I was wondering if any of you iPhone users have and use any of the Os maps / gps apps from your phone ? any recommendations ??
I have seen some standalone units in the shops , and i have a simple gps unit which does not have a map overlay but they do look like they would be useful …
Oh , i do know how to use a map , and have a compass , I know there is no substitute :)
GridPoint GB is a really simple app that simply tells you your grid ref. I've checked how accurate it is a few times and it's always bang on.
OS Converter is a useful tool to easily change between OS Ref, OSGB36 and WGS84. This also allows you to see your position on a map although data connection is needed.
Highly recommend ViewRanger. Used it a lot for mountain biking, walking and MR work.
