We are very proud of this recognition as well as of the of ViewRanger community that uses it as their preferred tool to guide them in their outdoor activities. Their continual interaction on the ViewRanger community website - my.viewranger.com - proves how sharing adventures both in the real world and online can enhance our enjoyment of the great outdoors.
The beauty of the app is that it is simple yet reliable enough to be used by everyone, from Sunday strollers to mountainbikers, mountaineers and Arctic explorers. Not only this, but it also used by more than 100 search and rescue teams worldwide, which is testimony to its quality."
