2. ViewRanger version 6

Version 6.0 of ViewRanger is being released in April 2015. You will receive it through the App Store.


Welcome to ViewRanger 6: Helping you find the right adventure for you

Below is an overview of the new version of ViewRanger, version 6.

As well as the new look and feel, there will be elements which you will recognise from previous versions and in this way, we hope, assist in making the transition to the new version, smooth and easy.

If however you do get lost or confused, then visit our What's Gone Where page which will put you back on track!

There is also no need to worry about losing information stored in the current app version such as purchased maps, downloaded routes and tracks as these will not be affected by the update.
