This post has not been kept up to date and the market for digital mapping is evolving quickly. OS has changed licensing, meaning that developers like Anquet and Memory Map can offer cheaper products. OS itself is closing “Get A Map” and replacing it with OS Maps on-line (expect increased subscriptions as they add new features) and they are now selling paper maps with special digital download codes. Members are requested to search the web to keep abreast of the latest products.
