How to mark Points of Interest

To mark a Point of Interest (POI) on your map – such as a footbridge, waterfall, campsite or pub – launch the ViewRanger app, tap the green + button in the bottom-right corner of the map screen then select ‘Add POI’.


You’ll be asked to enter a name for the POI, then you need to position it. Two red icons will appear on your map screen – a small one containing a blue circle, and a larger one containing four red arrows. The blue circle pinpoints the position of your POI, and if you hold your finger on the red arrows you can drag and drop it exactly where you want it. Once you’re happy with the position, tap Done and your POI will be created.

With your POI selected, you can use the menu above to navigate towards it, centre its position on your map, export it as a GPX file, and change its icon.
