Ordnance Survey Locate

OS Locate

Ordnance Survey have just released a new iPhone App to help you pinpoint your exact location in the United Kingdom.  Whether you are completely lost or on a long trek and just want some reassurance this is a helpful app to show you where you are.

The App uses your GPS location and converts this into OS grid references, so that you can plot your exact position on a paper map.  As it uses GPS it doesn’t need an internet connection to work.

The App also contains a digital compass, and an about section full of tips and tricks to help you navigate.

As always at Procamping we love how technology can be used to assist your adventures, but do not rely on technology alone, too many times we have been out to find our phone battery die mid hike!

The OS Locate app is available for free from the iTunes app store here.

An Android version is coming soon.
