About this app

Visorando helps find curated route ideas and turn your smartphone into a recreational GPS, even offline.

Millions of people use the mobile app to explore paths worldwide.


Find routes all over the United-Kingdom, matching your own needs for free - whether it’s a hike in the mountains or a stroll in the countryside, along the coast, into the woods or even in the city-even abroad. From a family walk to a strenuous hike, for a ramble on your doorstep or your next holidays, find what suits you best ! Walk or cycle, choose your own activity depending your location, the level and the duration you wish.

Each route sheet includes an OpenStreetmap map, a GPX, a step-by-step description, length, elevation gain, maximal and minimum altitudes, elevation chart, points of interests, level, weather forecast, and depending on user’s contribution photos and reviews.

Find more than 26 000 curated routes available world-wide (more than 3 500 of which in English).


When you found the right itinerary, download it offline before leaving, then press the button start to follow the route. The GPS app will guide you even off the grid. You will be able to see your live location and your real time progress on the map. If you go off-track, an alert will warn you.

While moving, the actual route is recorded so afterwards you can share it, analyse it, compare it with the one plotted or simply walk it again later.


Doesn’t any of the route suits you? No worries, you can :
- Plot your own route, thanks to our route planner available for free from your laptop via our website (and from your mobile phone if you subscribed to Visorando Club). When your route is saved on your computer, an automatic synchronisation allows you to find it over all your devices (mobile phone, tablet) where you are connected with your Visorando account.
- Record a live route and follow your progress on the map (distance, duration, elevation gain…). If you lose
yourself, you will be able to find your way back by following the route you just recorded.
- Import a GPX file

Since version 3 the interface is much nicer. But it has a major bug that has't been fixed as of 3.1.4. Downloading maps for offline use is disastrously slow. To download a 15x15km area (Open Street map) at level 16 detail took almost an hour. I gave up trying to get level 18 detail. 2. The old version 2.xx worked just fine. Unfortunately, I can't seem to go back. (FYI running Android 7)
