I'm going to the Isle of Man soon, and wondered if any large scale OS (or similar) mapping is available suitable for a Windows PPC?

I'm running Memory Map, and could get a 1:50k disc to cover the IoM (England North or somesuch), but they don't seem to list 25k maps.

Any info appreciated.

Have you considered Quo? for just a few map tiles it works out far cheaper than the much larger areas covered by Memory Map and it does work on a PDA - much more simplistic in use but for basic "lets see where I am on the map" and following a Route it is very good.

Quo can be found on This Site, for small area coverage it provides a cheap way to get limited area coverage, you do need to purchase 6 tiles at 99 pence each for 50K mapping, but it will take 4 tiles for the IoM, grab two for an area local to yourself so you can get used to the application before your trip.

Sadly on 50K mapping is available for the IoM though, you should also check the mobile application will work with your PDA as not all devices will load this correctly - Mike
