Before routes can be shared they must be uploaded to the my.viewranger.com website and set as published.
To upload all routes (and tracks) , use Cog tab, Synchronize content.
Routes can also be plotted manually from scratch on my.viewranger.com, as well as from a track recorded in ViewRanger, or an imported .gpx file.
|Enriched route content|
After uploading the route to the website but before publishing a route you should take some time to enrich the content with text, pictures and custom waypoint icons. This makes it more attractive to the user, especially if you are charging a fee for the route.
Don't forget to add tags to your route - see related page at the foot of this page.
A route can be set to private or published. If you want other users to see your routes they must be set to published. We don't support closed groups.
Global privacy settings are always set to private. You must manually set a route to published.
You change the privacy of individual routes from within the website.
Go to your My.ViewRanger account, select Routes > My Routes > Edit (next to your chosen route) > press the "Route information" button in the toolbar and change the Sharing status to Published (you can also set a price if you wish) and press save.
If the route is already uploaded you can share routes directly with the my.viewranger.com web site.
Log into the site the use Routes and tracks, My Routes. Click on the track name and sharing tools such as facebook and twitter will be displayed on public Routes.
Routes can be exported to GPX files from within the app or via the website. GPX is an open format supported by many different web sites and applications. For more information see the related page at the foot of then page.
