Paid 1:25,000 Maps - Update Information

Unlike the other map types, in-app-purchases for the paid 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey maps do not include future updates the the maps. If you've purchased one of these maps you'll be able to continue to download the same version that you originally purchased going forward.

In many cases the maps will have changed very little - or possibly not at all - from one version to the next, so you will not be missing out by keeping the old version. In some places, however, there may be changes that are worth getting and the app will let you pay again if you really want to.

So that you can decide whether it is worth paying again for the new version of a particular map, this page provides images that show what has changed for each purchase.

How to interpret these images

Each image corresponds to one of the purchases in the "OS Paid 1:25,000 Individual purchases" section of the Map Store.

On these images, the 50% grey tone shows areas where the map has not changed. Where features have been added, they are shown in their true colour; when they have been removed, they are shown in reverse. White areas are outside the coverage of the map (e.g. in coastal areas).

So an entirely grey map, or grey-and-white in coastal areas, indicates that nothing has changed, while a very busy map indicates a lot of changes. For examples of the two extremes, see sheets 17K (Gifford - no changes) and 11L (Aberdeen, which has gained a bypass).


These images correspond to the differences between the 2019 and 2021 versions of the maps.
