    nice work

    I have been known to spend timechecking around a few outdoors sales so that would be no problem

    I must admit to being tempted by the plug and play nature of the satmap

    I wouldn't say I was a technophobe, more technolazy

    importing, exporting and generally getting two machines to talk to each other is my idea of hell

    The thing with Quo is that you can just buy the tiles that you need so I have 50k for the national parks and 25k for the interesting bits.

    Has anyone had any experience with Viewranger for Android? I've been tempted to get that and some mapping as I've got some free applications but they pull mapping data over the air and that's not always the right move, especially in valleys!

    One other question, is there a way with viewranger to plot your routes on your home machine first, it's recently come to may attention I suck at plotting distances.

    Viewranger OS 1:50K / 1:25K maps are not pushed over thair, they are downloaded and stored on the phone (you have also got to pay for them). The free maps can be cached, I think you get the option to download the areas you want rather than it only being the area around you.

    Indeed I know Viewranger maps is on the device, which is why I'm looking at it. Is it usually a good idea to get al the 50k and cherry pick the 25k as you go along.

    Ben

    If you're after a Satmap, you can buy them online in Belgium for 300 Euro including a free Belgium 1:50 000 scale included:

    I agree with you thoughts on the expense of addditional maps....

    As well as Satmap consider Memory Map Adventurer - a friend has the 3500 and is impressed (I haven't yet seen it in action) - comes with 1:50K maps of whole UK.
