This Saturday (5th May) is the start of Britain’s biggest walking event - the Isle of Wight Walking festival. We're delighted to be an event partner again this year. If you are planning to join the festival, then why not install the ViewRanger app onto your smartphone. Our Free edition will give you a choice of open sourced map layers like OpenStreetMap and OpenCycleMap that can be stored in advanced for offline (no mobile signal) use. This app can also be upgraded to run detailed OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping for the whole of the Island for just £9.99.
All of the official Island trails are available to download directly onto your smartphone free of charge, giving you the mapped routel, full description and photos. Once installed you can use the GPS navigation features of ViewRanger to guide you along the route and help you get the most from your time. Click on the markers on the map to read more.
