Install maps

The instructions for installing Premium maps vary depending on how you received the maps.

For in-app purchases, maps are installed and activated automatically.
Maps received on memory card are already installed, so there is nothing further to do apart from activation.

Activate Maps

Enter the serial number, supplied with the new maps, via Menu tab (3 dots, top right), Help and feedback, Redeem (activate), press OK. ViewRanger will connect to the server to activate by using an Internet connection.

You can also activate the maps by going to http://my.viewranger.com/ and logging in with your ViewRanger email address and password, enter the serial number in the field top right, Activate and add to my account.
