ViewRanger wins 2014 Gear Award

Posted on 03/11/2014


ViewRanger has been voted the judges’ favourite smartphone navigation software in the 2014 GearWeAre awards!

The UK gear review website was launched at the beginning of September 2010 with just one aim: to tell people what’s good – and what’s rubbish – in the world of the outdoors.  Their reviewers are not paid a penny, so you can be sure that they tell it like it is!

The Gear Awards are voted for by a panel of 8 real-world outdoors enthusiasts and winners reflect the gear that they love: "the stuff that made our lives a little bit better, or made us sit up and take notice." 

The judges chose ViewRanger as their favourite smartphone navigation software...

"thanks to its easy interface and safety-tracking buddy-beacon feature."
