4.2. ViewRanger Account

We recommend that you create a ViewRanger account as this will store all you map downloads, purchase history, routes and tracks in one place.  This makes it easy when you want to add or change devices as you can just sign into your account and download all your stuff.

When you first download the ViewRanger App and open it, you will see the Create Account screen. You can choose to tap on LATER if you do not wish to set up an account right away.

If you then decide you do want to set up an account, you can do this by going to the Menu Tab (3 dots, green bar), My Account. You will then be asked to Create an Account or Sign in, if you already have an account with ViewRanger.

The My Account section also allows you to manage your ViewRanger account, as well as purchase credits.
