Offline mapping - and RMaps for UK Ordnance Survey
I'm new here, so hope you don't mind my using an existing thread to pose a related query...
I've only become an Android user a few days ago, but the wealth of mapping apps is one of the things that converted me from Symbian.
I'm quite impressed by RMaps - the big advantage for me in the UK is that you have access to the Ordnance Survey maps, which I think you really need for things like hiking and cycling: most other maps are based on roads, which is of limited use.
I know you can use Mobile Atlas Creator to make your own offline maps for RMaps. However, in MAC the Ordnance Survey Mapping does not seem to be available, only OpenStreetMap and things like that.
What I'd like to be able to do is cache the Ordnance Survey mapping in advance to my phone e.g. at home before I go off somewhere - because of course in many remote areas where you want to use the map you may not get a mobile signal. But I can't see a way of doing this.
Could anybody perhaps offer any advice?
I know you can now pre-cache Google Maps, which is very useful - but again Google's maps aren't actually that useful for off-road hiking etc.
Thanks very much in advance for any tips!
