Penquin Thanks it even covers around us in what seems to be fairly accurate detail of routes that I know of....

Very impressive, it covers the whole of Europe - have an overall look at the Netherlands.... they are obviously very keen on cycle routes!

I have found the map in the link easier for planning a route then make a screen print to take with me and use Maps.me for off line work.

I see that the link has options for different layers eg Transport, Landscape, Outdoor paths etc. See cliccky thingy TR of screen.
Thanks Andrew

We do not always know where we are going from day to day, also we have a very cheap smartphone contract which gives us 3Gb a month so we would be able to use the App.

I shall follow up your references a bit more before deciding.

http://www.opencyclemap.org/ I prefer it to the Sustrans one.

they also do an app if you have a connection in the area.

You can zoom in to as much detail as you want
That's excellent!

Zoom in to show SE England and the NL.

subfiver [QUOTE=caulkhead;2282417.... As a matter of interest we use Osmand+ as our resource of choice when it comes to cycling because .[/QUOTE]


Maps.me uses the same open source data as osmand, but is available for IOS & Android for those who have a mix of devices. Walking and cycling routes are shown where the data exists.
