    This app shows OS maps for central London (where we don't need them) but only pond-and-road maps in the countryside (where we want OS details).

    It is fantastic. I especially love the addition of an Android wear watch face. I think everyone in my group has now going with this software. Fantastic app.

    UI takes some getting used to. Once I figured it out, it's quite handy for off roading.

    Works great. Easy to use once user interface has been mastered (steep learning curve). UI covers many features and available options but navigating the UI needs additional maturing.
