ViewRanger Outdoors Adventure GPS launches on Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets


16-01-2014

ViewRanger, the award-winning mapping and navigation app, is now available from the Amazon Apps Store to download for Amazon Kindle Fire and other Android smart phones and tablets. ViewRanger helps outdoor enthusiasts to plan, navigate, and share their walking, cycling, skiing and riding outdoor adventures.

Following its release, ViewRanger has leapt to number one ranking in its category within the Amazon Store in France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. 

The ViewRanger app is free to download from Amazon Apps Store.  Premium topographic maps can be purchased from within the app using your Amazon account. 

ViewRanger is free to download and provides unlimited access to a range of mapping, such as OpenStreetMap, OpenCycleMap, and Bing Ariel imagery.  The maps can be downloaded and stored on your Kindle Fire, or other android device, for use later. So you don’t need mobile connection to view, plan and follow routes. 

For activities where detailed knowledge of the area is important, you can also purchase high quality, topographic maps from Ordnance Survey and other national agencies. Licensed mapping is available for 22 countries around the globe, including USA, Canada and New Zealand and most European countries, all of which can be purchased from within the app. 

One of the unique features of ViewRanger is its extensive trail guide library which offers thousands of recommended routes from leading travel publishers, tourism organizations, and local experts from the ViewRanger community.  The routes include detailed descriptions, photographs and advice on the difficulty, length and elevation which help you to select the best walk or cycle trail. ViewRanger also features active navigation which will help you avoid getting lost. 

It is also possible to track your own trail to share with friends or recommend to other ViewRanger users. To make this easy, there is a free to use companion website MyViewranger.com which provides tools to plot routes, analyse tracks, view maps on PC & Mac and print route maps.
