The Ultimate Navigation Software for the Outdoors
Outdoor Map Navigator - OMN
Replace your paper map collection, print the maps you need and use OMN on a smartphone instead of purchasing an expensive GPS unit.
Seriously Clever, Beautifully Simple
We take on the hard tasks so our users don’t have to. Take Route Sync – after finishing a walk, hit the Route Sync button on your phone. Hit the corresponding button on your PC, and you can view your tracklog. No wires, no file copying. Just simplicity.
The sofa is no substitute for a mountain
We build our products, we use them, and then we refine them. We aim for ultimate robustness so you can trust our apps. Passion for what we do drives us forward.
Works away from the internet
Your free Anquet Cloud account stores all your routes and maps which you can download at any time to any OMN app you have. Once downloaded, routes and maps are fully accessible on your device without requiring an internet connection.
Not just another app
The maps you purchase can be used on any OMN app you have - currently PC, iPhone, iPad, Android tablets and phones. OMN gives you capabilities beyond other systems.
Use like a paper map
Maps you know and trust
We sell Ordnance Survey Explorer and Landranger maps which are exactly the same as the paper versions you can buy in your local shop. We also sell French maps made by the National Cartographers of France – IGN.
Print at Scale
Print the maps at up to A3 size exactly at scale to match their paper equivalents.
Print a spare copy to take with you. If it gets a bit dog eared, print a fresh copy for your next outing.
and goes beyond a paper map
Zoom and print at any scale
OMN’s Smooth zoom system allows you to view your maps at any zoom level. You can also choose exactly at what scale you wish to print your maps.
Find Locations with ease
Unlike paper maps, finding locations is quick and easy. Search the free 250,000 place gazetteer for the UK, or utilise the full postcode and road name gazetteer. Alternatively locate yourself using grid references in all the common formats.
All of your maps are joined into a seamless layer. No more trying to navigate the edge of a map.
Switch maps at location
OMN will list all of the map types you have at your current location to make changing map a breeze. Change from OS 1:25,000 Explorer mapping to say an OS Road Map to give a better orientation of an area.
On your PC, just click and draw your route. With a full undo/redo buffer and other powerful tools, plotting your route is simple and enjoyable.
Having plotted your route, why not view it in 3D in the Anquet Virtual Landscape? This will allow you to familiarise yourself with your route before you get there. When produced with aerial photography these views are very realistic.
Compare two maps at once
Our split screen technology allows you to view two maps at once and optionally have them locked together so moving one will move the other.
Whilst out walking, allow your smartphone or tablet to keep a track of your movements with no requirement for internet access. Not only is this a safety feature should you need to retrace your steps, but you can also keep it as a record of your trip.
Interrogate the routes you have plotted and the tracklogs you have recorded for distance, height gain/loss, hidden length and other statistics. You can also view a route profile.
Start back where you left off
Every time you close OMN, it remembers where you were, so you can start back exactly where you were when you start up again.
With OMN Android and OMN iOS you can take OMN mobile and use the GPS built into your device to pinpoint your location.
If you haven’t made the jump to a smartphone we integrate with the majority of GPS units to exchange routes, waypoints and tracks, but not maps.
Buy once, use on up to 5 devices
Your free Anquet Cloud account stores each map you purchase so you can always access and download your mapping. No one time downloads and no need to back up your data as Anquet Cloud does all of this for you.
Runs on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP SP3.
Runs on phones and tablets that run Android 2.2 or above.
Runs on iPhones, iPads and iPods that support iOS5 or above. OMN iOS has been fully updated to support the new looks and feel of iOS7.

Flexible to work how you want to work
