Yep, that did the trick. Thanks :) (heat added, of course :) )
There isn't an option specifically to do this. However if you log in to your account, add the 1 month Premium subscription (not the £2.99 auto renewal option) to your basket, enter the code and checkout, it adds 2 months to your premium expiry date.
"This will also extend your subscription by 2 months if you already have one, again for free." Do you know how to do this? I can't see the option for extending my subscription.
Thanks OP worth a look for £00.00
There is and it's fine for printing out maps to take with you. I prefer these OS maps however when out in the field as you can plot routes and their app works well on the phone for GPS.
30% off RRP of ST&G's Marvellous Map of Great British Place Names with Code @ Ordnance Survey
Have a look at the Ramblers pathwatch for online os maps
For info, on phone if you use browser settings to view as desktop then you can get it (though you have to set it on a Google search page for bing maps first - or at least before you try to access the site). Doesn't seem to be a tie in to gps for live location though.
OSMand doesn't come anywhere near ordnance survey however if you get the 2004 maps that where converted from tracklofs and uploaded to Usenet as .qct you can download them from a 2013 torrent free also Garmin GB discoverer v2 50k maps and national parks and trails V3 maps are free but I can't find a source as long as you don't have a signing GPS the latest you'll be ok.... I have my android phone with mmtracker 1.21.1 and the maps OSMand and a Garmin Etrex 20 with the discoverer maps these are all free options that won't fail in a whiteout ......thus OS subscription covers all OS maps included pirated ones if you think of a broken spectrum to use a spectrum emulator or vinyl to dowoad an MP3 if you own the item you own it's intellectual copyright regardless of format.. ..if you are asking why Google maps isn't enough or why you are relying on cached maps in a whiteout sorry you are not a hiker. ....map and compass still needed I'm a walk leader 26 years experience
Ordered a year's sub using this account and already made use of it on a trail run. I found it more friendly than Viewranger. Just a word of warning though - you CANNOT stack subs using this offer as its a recurring sub. It will automatically renew on expiry - you will be reminded by email so can still cancel. You CAN stack the non-renewable subs at £29.99 but there is no discount on that. I just got this confirmed by chat. Still, a good bargain and an extra 96p off using TopCashBack LOL
Is there a way to check this actually has any routes near me
Can you stack the subs ? Eg buy two years worth at £10 off total ? also don’t forget topcashback
How does this compare to plotaroute? I've got a Garmin Fenix 5 Plus with GPS maps but I've only managed to get plotaroute maps to work properly. I'm interested in this deal but wanted to see if it would be hugely different to what I'm already using.
I have a 6s pro, the screen is gorilla glass which is fairly sturdy as it is. And I've got a tempered glass screen protector on it for extra safety, which was about £1 on Ali express. I've been using it for a while and it's still immaculate
£439 at Amazon just now.
I got a screen protector for my F5. Somehow managed to crack it very quickly so it was a few pounds well spent especially because I don’t know how it got damaged. Replaced the protector and it’s not come to any grief since despite a number of pratfalls!
Worn my fenix 3hr with sapphire screen every day for nearly 5 years Bezel has lots and lots of scratches including from a bike accident but the glass is still perfect.
Scratched the face of my fenix 5 the day I bought it around 3 yrs ago. Nasty big line right across! Garmin said £150 and they’ll send out a refurbished watch as they don’t do glass changes. So I’m awaiting a Forerunner 945 to appear on the BF deals which will replace my fenix 5 and 920xt. Bring on the deals.

Semantics. I'm paying for it for the purpose of leisure.......
You know what "Ordnance" is, yes? :-)
Either way, I'm personally happy to pay for stuff like this which is used for leisure time. I'd prefer my taxes spent on things like defence, housing and healthcare, not making maps for walkers (y)
OS has been a public corporation for a long time now, and either before that you had to pay for the maps. The original early mapping and much of the source mapping today was and is developed for non private users i.e. military and business who pay for 95% of the costs of OS. The fees OS charge for maps are fairly cheap given that printing maps is expensive and the company doing it needs paid, even the data has a maintenance costs attached to it and it isn't free to deliver. Any profits from OS go straight back into the public purse, so it is taxpayer funded, still is, it is just funded by the people that use the service rather than everyone! They also aren't making excessive profits!
Found this in terms for this code: OS Maps Subscription If you sign up successfully, you will get a free one-month subscription code to the OS Maps app. The code is only valid until 31 December 2020, at which point the code will expire. Use of the OS Maps app is subject to separate terms and conditions. These can be found here. Web link https://getoutside.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/national-getoutside-day-rules/
I myself use OsmAnd too. It's amazing how open source community mapping is much better for hikes and walks compared to official applications (y) There's the Here maps which I believe Garmin base their maps on. It doesn't have any topology features so OSM is much better. They have a free Here WeGo application but it's mainly for driving about tbh. It's nothing like the usual Garmin mapsource basecamp which does show this. For those who are saying the paths are missing on the maps. You can always contribute to OSM online through the online map editor on their website - it will feature the mapping changes right away to the online versions of the map. Google maps can also be contributed from the Send Feedback option in-app you get to draw the path and it appears to update within a day (I am a local guide on Google).
Tried Pathwatch on a walk yesterday, the GPS didn't pinpoint my exact location, but it's a great source to OS maps, thanks @andychelt. OsmAnd (OpenStreetMaps) did a great job with GPS and still have clear footpaths on their map. Touring style map option worked best for me. @LordMetro thanks for suggesting.
Anyone know when this code officially expires?
what is this for???

Free download and print colouring maps from Ordnance SurveyFREE£0.01
Just spotted these, a small selection of black and white maps for you to colour in, in the same style as the "adult colouring books". There are 4 for direct download and a 15 page… Read more
Check out the historical UK maps here, you can print your own and view side by side with modern maps. Some go down to street/building level e.g. London but there's also 25 inch to the mile. maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/ (Looks a lot better on PC)
Signed up earlier and just updated description. Actually 14 maps (page fifteen was cover!) from 7 different cities. Two of them are within the OS logo shape, rest full page.
You really have to be bored to colour maps (lol)
Thanks. Shame the Southampton one misses my house by a fraction
Anyone knows which 15 on book?
