Ordnance Survey Mobile App – How to use the Ordnance Survey Mobile App – Part 3

This is Part 3 of the Ordnance Survey demonstration where I show you how to use the Ordnance Survey Mobile App interface and your routes. You can watch Part 1 – The interface overview and how to discover routes and Part 2 – How to create custom routes by clicking the links.

The digital platforms provided by Ordnance Survey, online and mobile, are a much welcomed addition to their already established and vast array of hardcopy paper maps which I’ve been enjoying for many years.
