Dies what it says on the tin
Brilliant map app Free download with free maps but you get so much more out of this app if you buy the Ordnance Survey maps. App allows you to mark up the map with waypoints for hiking and then records your tracks (with ascent). You can zoom in the maps (which just makes them bigger - no additional detail) which makes map reading really easy. Best thing is that your GPS location is shown on the map. Never get lost again! (Provided you can read a map). Absolutely brilliant app. Only request for further functionality would be to be able to determine a bearing from the map (Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Android 4.4.2)
Great Package...and Fantastic Customer Support I have used ViewRanger for about 5 years, as an Outdoor Education Instructor and a Mountain Rescue team member. It's a brilliant app that I've recommended to friends and clients. I don't use Skyline or Route sharing, and asked for a previous version more suited to my professional use. I sent my request on a Friday night. Before 9am Saturday morning, Augmentra had replied with solutions to all the issues I'd raised. Unbelievable support!
Simply the best. While any handset navigation device or satnav can never replace map and compass ViewRanger is a truly wonderful and invaluable navigation tool for navigating walk routes, checking out new ones, recording them and making them available to the wider hillwalking community. Never be caught without a map or lost again. I highly recommend it. Kfinn
Used to be good... I paid for this app before it went free. However I now cannot use it without paying for each map segment wanted as these are randomly demanded when using... - Not sure if this is a bug or just blatent monetizing... Either way it could be bloody dangerous if you are stuck somewhere...
Had it for years, still a great app. Used frequently for route planning and direction as well as for just seeing how far I've walked the dog after tea. Very easy to change between phones or tablets when upgrading too! Only thing I would say is, bring back the panoramic peak identification feature from years ago.
INTRODUCING SKYLINE: Bring your outdoor map to life with Skyline, our new augmented reality technology. Using your camera it will identify key features around you such as peaks, places, and lakes. Skyline helps you navigate too. See waypoints and follow direction arrows for routes on the real landscape. (Note: No Skyline coverage in Alaska)
- A new Map Options panel.
- New waypoint icons for POI's and Waypoints.
