Great deal thank you. I use the maps when I'm out in my local mountain bike route as I do see a lot of lost tourists and having a map to hand really helps them.

When I do it digital downloads os maps are reduced to £9, not £9 then reduced again. Then it's 3.99 delivery.
If you only want 1 they are £6.29 with free delivery at Dash4it.co.uk
Active ones best I find, even if keeping in a water-proof sleeve. Seem a bit more hard-wearing.

You’re very welcome. I teach navigation as a job so I’m verging on evangelistic about the importance of paper maps. There’s an interesting article here about the importance of using our navigation skills or risk losing them as they are eroded by our reliance on technology.

On the inside of the cover is a scatch zone with the code hidden.
If you have a Go Outdoors card then they should price match this and minus 10%.

An GPS/mobile phones tend not to blow out of your hands in strong winds - at least not far. There are pluses and minuses of technology and paper maps.

I can easily fit all the maps for the UK at 1:25K on a microSD card. If I am hiking on my own I take a spare mobile with me. So that's 2 lots of every map in the UK on me. If I run out of power on both phones then I guess luck is not on my side but I reckon the odds of losing a paper map is greater.

I do like paper maps but for normal hiking home and abroad my phone is my first option. I prefer paper maps for planning.

I use OS Maps on my phone but, in my humble opinion, you just can’t use a small screen in the same way that you can a paper map.
Great deal, tend to use back country navigator now though, so easy.. never get lost. Bring a spare plug in backup battery. Can't beat a map thouhh

You certainly can't use them in the same way. In my opinion my phone is much more powerful. I can download my planned route to overlay on the phone and can even set it to follow the route if I felt the need (which I don't) to sound a warning if you go off take by a user defined amount. On top of that I can see the timings and height profile of previous routes (handy if following someone elses route). You can see immediately on the map where you are and where you have been. You can see within seconds how far it is to elsewhere on the map. Given internet connection you can search for places. For me the main benefit is the speed of ascertaining where you are though - which with a map and compass is more time consuming - and awkward in windy conditions.

I once 'rescued' a walk leader to get her back on track when she hadn't a clue where she was as we were thick fog (and rain) and had no visible reference points.

Paper maps are great for getting an overview of where you are relative to more distant landmarks. Each to their own - if I only had to have one of GPS or map I would go for GPS. Both is best. In fact I had already bought a map for a friend from Ultimate Outdoors on a similar offer to this... and you get a digital copy of the OS map included in the purchase of the map too!

But the deal posted says they are £5.40 less the 25%, when they're £9 less the 25% and the deal posted does not include postage?

But that's 25% off £9, not off £5.40 as the post suggests.
Incidentally, you can try the os maps app by signing up to a free 7 day trial on the ordnance survey web site. ordnancesurvey.co.uk/blo…ee/

If you want to spend your whole walk staring at a screen and playing with your phone then that's your choice but most walkers like to look up and actually admire the views. Paper maps for me, every time.

I didn't say anything about spending the whole walk staring at a screen. I didn't say anything about not admiring the views and looking up. As I pointed out, for me, using a mobile is a quicker way of finding out where you are than using a paper map thus giving more time to enjoy the views. You are quite free to believe the opposite is true of course.

You are looking at the OS Active maps, which are the waterproof ones. They are originally £15, down to £9 with the 40% off, and then £6.76 with the code, as per my post, which also clearly states that P&P is £3.99 for orders under £70.

That old chestnut again. No it doesn't work that way. You only need to look at your map when you want to check your position.
It makes no difference whether the map is on paper or on a screen. You wouldn't walk looking at a paper map all the time, no need to do that with a digital map even though it is much easier to handle than a big flappy paper thing.

I agree that there is additional functionality using a phone and that some of those functions can be really useful. I’m a great advocate of technology and as a professional nav instructor I recognise that GPS / GNSS is a game changing development, allowing us to navigate much more easily. I also agree that you should use both but my view is that GPS should be used as an aid to our fundamental nav skills, so if I had to choose one or the other, it would be a paper map. Even on a large phone screen, you can only view approximately 5 x 3 km at 50K, or 2.5 x 1.5 km at 25K, which isn’t big enough an area. Over reliance on technology is causing our innate navigational abilities to atrophy, as referenced in one of my posts above, so being able to get a location instantly comes at a cost.
