Long distance riders and happy hackers can take advantage of a new application available for the iPhone, showing real-time positioning on Ordnance Survey maps.

Featuring a trip computer and tracklogs recorder, Memory-Map’s free app enables user to purchase specific areas of Ordnance Survey mapping, with a choice of either Landranger (1:50,000) and Explorer (1:25,000).

Both scales show footpaths, bridleways and byways open to all traffic. The maps are held on the phone’s memory so users do not have to rely on mobile reception to see their maps.

A 25,000 km2 of 1:50,000 Landranger mapping costs £12.50 — that’s enough to download all of Wales.

For riders who already use Memory-Map on their computer, a paid-for app (£9.99) enables users to transfer their existing Memory-Map V5 PC maps to their iPhone.

And to ensure your iPhone is kept clean and dry whilst out in the elements, Memory-Map has a range of waterproof and rugged cases — the iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 OtterBox Defender cases.
