    Does this always plot routes in straight lines rather than follow actual route of bridleways etc.? It seems to to me

    No. The OS App has an option to follow rights of way within national parks. It occasionally misses a connection node but I think it’s brilliant.

    ( Had previously used Viewranger and another on the past )

    What app are you using to plan online? I use Strava and its pretty good at showing paths and off road routes. There’s a manual function too so you can plot your own path if you know its there.

    I generally use cycle.travel which follows paths, etc. Plotaroute has the option to turn following off if required.

    Sorry – title should be OS (Ordnance Survey) route planning……

    @ the generalist – so OS only follows rights of way in National Parks?

    thanks

    I think the new OS maps web version isn’t restricted to national parks and is probably quite good if plotting from scratch, but I’ve found it sub-optimal when importing routes to edit.
