ViewRanger Open is a lot more than just another GPS map and tracker, it’s probably the most fully featured Outdoors GPS app available, complete with place name search, active waypoint based navigation, “BuddyBeacon” location sharing and a web based route planning and sharing tool (My.ViewRanger). It’s ideal for Hiking, Mountain Biking, ATV, Cycling, Geocaching, Horseriding and other Outdoors activity.
With Open edition - our entry level product, you get free US National Overview & 1:500K scale maps (via in-app store) and unlimited use of web maps including OpenStreet/Cycle Map© 2011 OpenStreetMap, CC-BY-SA & contributors, Bing Road Maps & Aerial Imagery.
Need more detailed Topo maps? It’s easy to buy & install National Geographic® Topo! 1:24K & 1:100K Maps via the in-app store (ie National Park Maps @ $4.99), or have a look at ViewRanger GPS edition as this comes with included NG Topo! map credits.
Planning a trip abroad? ViewRanger Premium gives you your choice of topo maps for many European countries & New Zealand.
Please note: To get the best from our app, we recommend that you install mapping using a WiFi connection. If using OpenStreet or Cycle Maps, please fully view the area you need first online and then switch map mode to offline, before heading out. This means you can also turn off data services to conserve battery, if required.
