Yes, it’s in my Favourites now as well - thanks for that Richard.

It is very similar to OS Get-a-Map - well at least the way I use it. It appears to be slightly easier to navigate at 1:50,000 scale (the window size is similar at 5km x 5km as opposed to 4km x 4km for Get-a-Map), but it doesn’t have the 1:25,000 layer which is a shame as that is where the valuable detail lies for planning those ascents. For those without Memory-Map or Anquet, it will be more valuable.

It depends on your monitor and resolution, it is 5 x 9km on my 24" wide screen were as Get-A-Map is still 4 x 4km.

Okay, so I’m still a square! At least the TV is widescreen…
