AA Launches Best Walks In Britain App

The AA has a long tradition as one of the top producers of walking guides in the country and now has released its best walks in Britain as an app.  The AA Best Walks In Britain app contains over 1500 of the best walks in Britain researched and mapped out by the AA.  With so many walks to choose from, it couldn’t be easier to find one nearby your home or holiday destination and have a great day out. So, pack your rucksack and get out there!
It is so easy to use. Users can quickly select walks from the pins on the map and check the suitability with a summary showing distance, estimated time, difficulty and typical landscape.  It even helps make the most of your walk with detailed descriptions, step by step directions and what to look out for on the way. Use the walk descriptions and directions for free or, for even simpler navigation, choose to purchase an Ordnance Survey® Landranger® 1:50,000 or Explorer™ 1:25,000 map with a GPS route to follow

The key features of the AA Walks app are:
* FREE – over 1500 of the Best Walks in Britain
* FREE – detailed walk descriptions
* FREE – step by step written directions
* FREE – what to look out for while there
* Optional – purchase and download OS maps

If you choose to purchase the optional Ordnance Survey map and GPS route for your chosen walk you can turn your iPhone into outdoor GPS and simply follow your route on-screen. For extra convenience, the Ordnance Survey maps are downloaded to your phone so you can even use them ‘offline’ if you lose phone signal. The app can be downloaded from iTunes Store AA Best Walks in Britain

Note: This app works best with GPS-enabled phones including iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and later models.
