How to locate yourself on the map

Posted on 10/08/2018

We all know that the best way to avoid getting lost is knowing your location. Back in the day of only paper maps it was a bit tricky for a newbie to be knowledgable in all the details needed to know your location, such as: map scale, terrain features, elevation, declination, bearings, etc.

Even though it is still important to know the basics of map and compass (technology breaks, batteries die), ViewRanger makes it easy to pinpoint your location. Your positioning is usually determined within a few meters, so that you can have a peace of mind. No mobile or data signal is needed for this feature to work - only a GPS signal. GPS chips are now built into modern-day smartphones. However, for the best experience, make sure you download the proper offline maps and pack an extra battery pack.
