Incidentally, for those of you who are subscribers to OS Maps, there is a new, clever feature which can be used in the National Parks when creating a new route on the 1:25k maps.  You can now "snap" the route to one of the National Parks paths and the route detail is drawn for you - see Help on the OS toolbar.  

Also, on phones and tablets (only), you are now able to display icons of your own stored routes and tracks as well as others in the vicinity.  And OS have been promoting a new facility called Augmented Reality - it doesn't work on my tablet but let me know if you get it to work.
