Bought this app yesterday. Left it on for 45m on wifi connection. Kept flashing up "downloading" after 45m all I had was 5 blue squares. Total waste of money. Bought OS Atlas afterwards and it worked straight away. Am using Android 4.0 on Galaxy Nexus. Perhaps this needs updating for this OS?

Having moved from quo mapping I'm really pleased. Use whilst out walking and also geocaching. To find and place out new ones. Keep up the great work.

I originally purchased this (with maps) for Geocaching in the early Nokia days. Since then I have got through many devices (Nokia/iPod Touch/3 Androids) and every time they let me transfer my purchase with NO EXTRA FEES. Plus customer support is also very fast. Keep up the great work Augmentra!

it does what it says but what it dosent say is the maps are more expensive the buying a proper map....wtf is up with that? with d/l'ng maps theres no printing/transporting/retail so why are these maps so expensive? sry i cant see the point of this but hey i can actually read/navigate without a satnav and so shud anyone venturing into the outdoors!
Been using a while now and brilliant. better than my e-trex by a very very very long way. On moto defy. Super accurate.

Great app. Wasn't convinced this would be better than a physical map. Most definitely is. If walking and need OS maps. Get it.

Really impressed with this app. I've tried it around London the past few days. Taking it on mtb in Dartmoor this weekend.

Looks good but actually not as quick and reliable as when I had it on my old Nokia 5800.

Very happy with the software, everything appears to work fine. Also good support when I had a minor problem that was quickly solved. Highly recomend
