Folks, I have a question about digital maps that I don't know if anyone can help me on. I've always been very happy with my map and compass as a way of planning and navigating routes.

recently however, I was at a friends house in North Wales, and he showed me his memory map software of Snowdonia. I have to say, I was really impressed at the way it gives you all these 3D views to help you plan your routes out. It really is a nice tool. But as with all these things you can buy maps for the UK and US but that seems to be about your lot.

Has anyone found a way of getting OSI maps (or equivalent!) into some such package? I checked out the OSI website but although it does mention digital maps I got the idea it was aimed more at the professional market..
