Should I choose Standard Definition or High Definition OS maps?
HD maps have nearly 7x as many pixels per square inch so produce much higher quality prints up to A3 in size. Plus HD maps allow higher magnification zoom levels so it is easier to read the maps on screen. Of course this extra high quality does mean larger file sizes which could be an issue for your iPhone, iPad or Android device. If you want the best possible maps choose HD but be prepared to select only the areas you need to tranfser to your mobile or tablet rather than complete Great Britain in one go.
