ViewRanger beta release

Posted on 22/01/2010

We've just started beta testing a new version of ViewRanger. The main changes are:

  • - Free online maps such as OpenStreetMap and Open Cycle Map can be downloaded and viewed.

  • - Create folders for managing groups of routes and tracks.

  • - GPS interface is simpler to use, gives a faster initial result and makes better use of multiple GPS/location sources.

  • - On touch screen phones tap twice to zoom in.

  • - On touch screen phones the buttons slide off screen after a few seconds of inactivity.

  • - Textual search for routes - it searches the name, description and provider.

  • - Support for new style Retrieva collar messages, which will be used soon.

  • - Reports Retrieva alert messages, such as leaving base station range.

Full details of the changes are in the release notes.
