It’s now faster and easier to plan your own routes in the ViewRanger app.

Do you prefer creating your own trails? Can’t find the exact GPS route for your next trip?

Then check out the all-new route plotting tool in the ViewRanger app. Our team has completely revamped how you manually plot, drag, and insert points on a map. Do it all on your iPhone and iPad today. Coming later this summer to Android.

Create your next hike, walk, or bike ride now.

CREATE A ROUTE

1. Launch the free ViewRanger app. Log in with your ViewRanger account.
2. Go to Map Screen.  
3. Tap (+) in the lower right corner.
4. Select Plot a Route.
