Works for me I used this to navigate through my first ever cycle tour - a seven day trip around Tuscany. I bought premium maps as they were fairly priced but the free maps were okay too. I would highly recommend viewranger as it really was excellent and kept me on track. I even found it useful when on a bus as I was able to watch the map track so that I knew when to get off the bus in the dark! Great application.
Impressed Just moved over from another tracker and although it takes a while to figure out the capabilities of this app I am very impressed with it. I particularly like the ability to create your route first and then follow it with the app - saves getting lost so often as the GPS is spot on.
ViewRanger Cannot stress how good this app is. No substitute for good map reading skills of course, but this is just great.
Good, but not for me Apps that want my email before I start get my back up, so we got off to a a bad start. Then I read somewhere I could track my route and tag points with photos, but how to add photos eludes me. It could not use my pre existing, purchased, OS maps. Settings are entered as numbers with NO units, irksome. There are options, settings, settings inside settings which begs the question what were the first settings. Some icons seem completely unrelated to role, pretty, but irrelevant.
Gets better! I've been using the app for 4 years and it gets better with every update! Works perfectly with the website where i can see my hikes/walks and even attaches photos I've taken en-route and shows them on the plotted track. Support is second to none.
Walked End to End with this app and no other map, it's brilliant! Last summer walked Land's End to John o'Groats, 1200 miles cross country, with this app and it never let me down. Recordered my progress and allowed me to walk without worrying about getting lost or collecting a resupply of maps along the route. Also allows for spontaneous route change, just found signal and downloaded the new tiles.
New way to manage your maps:
- Purchased maps are now displayed in an easily accessible list within ‘My Maps’ to be re-downloaded.
- Re-download owned map tiles easily.
- Easily delete saved maps to free up extra space and then re-download when required.
- Manage maps across multiple devices.
Height data now comes bundled up with maps so you no longer have to download altitude files separately.
Track/ Route previews now appear overlaid on top of preview maps.
