5.1. Changing to a new device

Maps can be installed on up to four concurrent devices using the same ViewRanger account.

On the existing device, in the ViewRanger app, use Menu tab (3 dots in green bar), Sycronize content.  This uploads your routes and tracks to the website http://my.viewranger.com so they can later be downloaded to the new device.  If you have lots of POIs that must be kept as well, please contact support, before discarding your old device.

Install Software

First install the ViewRanger software from the Apple App Store. Install the Free version.

Sign into your account to license maps

Start the ViewRanger app on your new device and sign into your ViewRanger account when it prompts. Be sure to use the same account as you used on your previous device.

(Alternatively, use Menu tab (3 dots in green bar), My Account to sign in.)

Maps list to restore maps

On your new device, ensure you are connected to wifi.  Restore you map packages, tiles, custom maps and saved maps by going to Menu tab (3 dots, green bar), Maps. Here you can download your maps:

Alternate method to restore maps
