UK OS Maps for APRS? Was RE: [aprssig] KNOPPIX and XASTIR

Crap results, bad data (if any) for the UK, though that was some time

The best results so far, involve using the excelent PA7RHM MapServer
add-on for UiView, but not the latest version, that has problems saving
static maps.

I make a collection of static maps for the intended route and
surrounding areas before heading off, and use them..

At a pinch, I could do it on the move, but the cost would be cripling at
3UKP a meg of mobile data.
