Brilliant app but just needs a couple adjustments to be perfect

An excellent app showing the locations of all Historic Scotland managed locations.
The Map of Scotland took is great for checking what’s around the area you’re planning to visit.
You can make an itinerary of what to visit and check of where you’ve been.
On the aforementioned map, it would be useful to see what locations are marked as ‘visited’ (maybe change the icon colour) and show those on an itinerary.
It would also be great if the itinerary took was more integrated into the map locations pages and map, as well as being able to select locations based on their map location rather than having to go back and forth to find the close together locations.

Location details not good

My iPhone has its own maps application, but when looking for directions, I’m expected to download Google maps - why?

And come to that, grid references are useful, but far more useful for most people would be an exact address with postcode, since that’s how my satnav finds places, not with grid references. These are available on the main website, so I’m not sure why they are inaccessible to the app.
