Get more from maps

To get more from by firstly heading to Find A Walk and double click on one of the icons . Immediately you’ll see the title of the walk and a photo. If you want to know more then click on the blue text and the link will take you to a map with more detailed information.

Once you’ve picked a walk and you arrive at the start of the route expand the map to full screen mode () on your phone. Next click on the geolocator icon () which will show your position in relation to the route.

See below if you receive a geolocation error

Now, as you walk the route you can see exactly where you are located on the map so it’s really much harder to get lost.

Also as you walk the route only photos associated with the visible portion of the map are displayed. Click on the photo for a more detailed view.

On the left hand image we have nearly half the route visible and many photos. On the righthand side we have expanded the map and only one image relates to this section of the map. We have clicked on the icon (for drink) and the image associated with it has popped up.

Select this icon and you can choose other views of the map like Outdoors or Satellite.

We welcome any comments about the walks or suggestions about the web site. Make these comments at the end of the walk or drop us a line via the Contact form.

Geolocation error

On an Android Swipe down from the top of the screen. Touch and hold Location . If you don’t find Location : Tap Edit or Settings . Then drag Location into your Quick Settings. Tap App permission. Under ”Allowed all the time,” “Allowed only while in use,” and “Ask every time,” find the apps that can use your phone’s location.

We hope you get more from in the coming months and years.
