OS Maps is the new, simple-to-use but feature-rich map app you can trust from Ordnance Survey. This is the app you need for downloading a digital version of an OS Explorer or OS Landranger paper map that you’ve bought with a unique code. OS Maps is highly detailed mapping data, embedded in an app that’s designed to help you navigate Great Britain without restrictions.
Whether you choose to download and use the free version of OS Maps or you choose to upgrade and subscribe to enjoy the full features and mapping, we’ll give you (and your friends or family) access to everything you love about the outdoors – via your handheld device, or by logging in to your online account.
With OS Maps in your hand, we’ll guide you and let you know if you’re going off course. It’s reliable, friendly and easy-on-the-eye, so it’s an ideal map app for walkers and ramblers: runners and cyclists will benefit from future features, too.
