Hi Ferdinand,

Thanks for the creating the videos, I haven't used view ranger too much so it was a useful refresh.

Hi,

I've been testing the app but I can't get A-B navigation to work. It won't calculate a route over the roads between two points. Do I need the expensive maps for that?

Viewranger is not a 'turn by turn' navigation app like Google maps.

It won't 'route' you from point A to point B.

Think of it like a paper map your mate has drawn a his favour off road route on for you to follow. It allows you to see his trail on a open source (free) map. The advantage of this is that the cursor will tell you where you are on this map which a paper map obviously can't.

You have to place the cursor over the blue line (mates trail) and follow it yourself. When you arrive on the ground at the start of the trail it will scroll along it as you ride. If you deviate it won't reroute you.

I tend to use Google maps or Maps.Me to get me to the start of the off road TET route then switch to viewranger to follow the preloaded TET black line.

Hope this help.

And you don't need expensive map for that. Use open cycle map as show in tutorial as this shows all the paths, goat tracks, rights of way, byways etc. Just not the legality of them. You have to check on the ground as you go or cross reference on an OS map.

You can buy OS maps for viewranger but I manage without as I'm a cheapskate

Hi guys, as you're discussing viewranger could you answer my question please, I was using viewranger to gain other routes by people that had posted them on there, but it won't let download to a gpx file, is there a way to transfer a route to gpx or route to track, just so I can load them to my Garmin. Thanks
