For users in the UK the TwoNav will be available later in the year when the free data from the Ordnance Survey is published.

The above quote appeared in the News announcement of TWONAV.

What is this 'Free data from OS'? Maps? Tell me more!

Hmm I fear TwoNav may be making a leap in assumption there.

As I understood it, OS mapping would be available on-line free but not for download to GPS devices?

oops - silly me! i read the title and assume OS = Open Source! as opposed to Ordnance Survey...

but yes, I agree with darren that this is likely to be jumping the gun slightly and misunderstanding exactly what OS will be offering!
