New Update of ViewRanger for Android

Posted on 07/09/2011

We have just released V2.2.3 of ViewRanger for Android smartphones and tablets.

 

In-App Purchasing via Android Market

You can now purchase premium maps direct from your Android smartphone or tablet! No more having to purchase through our webshop and sideload the map data onto your microSD card (though this channel is still available, of course).

Simply go to Organizer > ViewRanger Store > 

and browse the wide range of maps available.  You can purchase map regions, or purchase a credit pack to use to download individual map tiles.

Premium mapping is available for: Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Ireland, parts of Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, and USA.

NOTE: To support in-app purchasing, most people will need to update the AndroidMarket app itself.  See: http://support.viewranger.com/wikihelp/index.php/Android_Market_Troubleshooting for more info.

Multitouch Zoom

This new version includes support for multi-touch zoom, so you can pinch/pull to zoom in and out.  You can also "double-tap" with a single finger to zoom-in.

This works for the free online maps (openstreetmap, opencyclemap, Bing maps, etc) and for the premium charts (Ordnance survey, IGN, BKG, National Geographic, NLS Finland, SwissTopo, etc.)
