Fancy yourself as a bit of a Ramblin' Man or Woman? Maybe brush up on your cartography

In my experience, every time the app updates it wipes the downloaded maps off the device and they have to be downloaded again. I only have two maps (and I won't be buying any more), but if you've got dozens of maps this would be a real pain, especially if you only discovered that you didn't have the maps when on the hill or if the app auto-updated on 4g and then you had to knacker your bandwidth to get the maps. When I emailed OS about this and pointed out that most other apps manage to update without losing data they said that this wasn't a problem because WiFi's free.

I've only got Premium OS membership cos it came free with a magazine subscription. They can F**k off at renewal time.
