In 2015 the classic range of paper maps were updated to include a digital download with each map purchased. The OS Explorer (1 25 000 scale) are already available, with the OS Landranger (1 50 000 scale) joining them early in 2016.
With each paper map a unique code is included that allows a copy to be downloaded on a smartphone or tablet. This digital map is not just a simple image, but includes full GPS capabilities to show your exact location or record your journey, as well as the ability to plot routes and save them for later use.
What about GPS devices?
There's no clue here about how I might download to my Garmin Montana or indeed any other rational kind of handheld GPS.
