I'll shortly be stalking new plantation ground, which I've been round once - and likely will get lost the first several times on my own. Will use a map and compass as I'm used to that and the batteries never run out.
GPS and lots of shiny, expensive toys could be added to my bag to 'make life simpler'.
Having lived in scotland long enough to suffer arm-length-pocket-depth dysfunction I'm considering a free app for my work iPhone 6. This has a GPS chip in it that, allegedly, works without t'internet or mobile signal. In the area I'll be stalking there is of course neither.
I've downloaded an app called Atlas that stores local copies of OS maps and relates this to GPS position, with ability to track when out of range of phone mast or t'internet. Allegedly.
Anyone tried these apps/ any feedback?
