12.3. Navigation settings

These settings can be found under Menu tab, Settings, Navigation:

POI/wpt alarm

Switch the alarm for arriving at a POI or waypoint on and off.

Select arrival alarm

The tone / sound played when the arrival alarm is triggered. The list shows all tones, sounds and music tracks stored in the standard locations on the phone.

XTE Alarm

Switch the cross track error alarm on and off.

Select XTE alarm

The tone / sound played when the XTE alarm is triggered. The list shows all tones, sounds and music tracks stored in the standard locations on the phone.

Arrival alarm distance

When navigating, this setting determines the distance at which ViewRanger first sounds its arrival alarm. A setting of 50m means the alarm will sound when you are within 50m of the target point.

XTE alarm distance

When navigating a route, this value determines when the cross track error alarm sounds. Cross track error is the distance you are away from the planned route. If this setting has a value of 100m the alarm will sound if you are 100m or more from the route.

Show next wpt distance

When navigating a route, this value determines the distance at which ViewRanger will consider you to have arrived at a waypoint. Once you reach this distance from a waypoint, ViewRanger will start pointing to the following waypoint.
The default value is 15m – so once you are within 15m of a waypoint, ViewRanger will start pointing to the following waypoint. If you have alarms enabled, the arrow will still be red while you are within the alarm distance.

Heading vector time

The length of the heading arrow is how far you will travel in this time at your current position.
