    Agree that no problems with mobile comms of gps in Norway. Worse in parts of Scotland.

    Accurate maps is the issue

    Mapsme is great
    But not for mountain walking It could easily take you over a cliff edge or to a dead end where you either need to go back or do some rock climbing.

    Not meant as a criticism of Mapsme but it is not intended for hill walking !

    I suspect assisted GPS needed

    OR buy a hand-held garmin "mountain walking GPS"

    a 7 in screen is easier to read though

    Technology is great when it works many mountain rescues in this country are because people rely only on technology and it lets them down or they lose signal. Best place to get maps in Norway is from the shops run by the Forside
    — Den Norske Turistforening
    turisrforening who are the ones who put the big red Ts on the trails and maintain the cabins. They give out lots of good advice too and reccomend routes and stuff. Also a great place to buy socks!!

    Totally agree. I wouldn’t head into the Scottish mountains without a paper map and compass. Technology is ok for taking a photo at the summit.

    Assisted GPS as explained in the link above does not improve accuracy. It does speed up acquisition time ...
