Posted on 16/07/2012

Use Dropbox within ViewRanger to Import and Export Data

Dropbox is a very popular cross-platform file sharing service. The latest Apple update of ViewRanger, Version V3.2, for iPhone and iPad users now supports Dropbox, so you can export routes, tracks and POIs to GPX files directly via Dropbox. You can also import GPX files and other items from Dropbox.

Dropbox allows ViewRanger to access the folder /Apps/ViewRanger, but not folders outside this area.
