As Frampton says ...I want you to show me the way

Recommended Posts

Getting back into hiking, but getting fed up with paper maps.  Hence, I'm looking at going for memory-maps from ordinance survey.  Bearing in mind that I like studying the map to find my way (sad!) and identify whats around me any ideas for alternative map systems and preferably cheaper as well?

OS Pinpoint was nice when we had it on trial for the Ambo service. not cheap, but better than the standard OS mapping apps.

At the risk of getting shouted at, Google Maps is pretty good, and you can change the views/maptypes. With Local Download, you can select your play area and download the maps for 'offline' mode. I use that as my back up system for calls where we get sent to places with no mobile coverage, i just update the downloaded version every week or so for the 8sq mile area i theoretically cover

Have nothing much useful to add, but my wife just took my mom to see Frampton last night. Didn't really know who he was until I looked him up yesterday, yes I have heard his songs. Then saw this and thought it was funny! He played with Jason Bonham as opening, didn't know who he was either but apparently he is one talented drummer!
