THE AA HAS launched its first digital road atlas app.

 

 

The app mapping is shared with the AA's range of paper road atlases and are viewable at scales between 1:200,000 to 1:1,000,000.

 

Offline operation

The basic maps are downloaded to the device so they can be viewed without an internet connection, making them perfect for planning days out when sat in your van at night. Offline searches for postcodes, towns, cities and villages, selected points of interest, airports and services are also available.

 

If an internet connection is available, there is the added option of street-level maps and street names.

 

Users can set the focus of the map to view their location based on the device's GPS reading. Alternatively, they can choose an OS grid reference, easting and northing, or a postcode to within 100 metres.

 

Compass mode

To make map reading even easier, the maps come with compass mode. This automatically sets the maps to point north as well as the ability to rotate the map on screen to ensure left and right turns won't become confusing.

 

The AA Road Atlas app is available from the iTunes Store, priced at £1.79 for iPhones and £4.99 for iPads.
