ViewRanger now on touch screen phones

ViewRanger, navigation software that turns your mobile phone into a GPS unit, is now available for the latest breed of touch screen mobile phones.

Available on Nokia 5800 and other Symbian S60 touch screen mobile phones, ViewRanger says its software ‘takes full advantage of the touch screen to put detailed topographic maps at your fingertips and offer a simplified navigation and outdoor exploration experience’.

Maps can be dragged, routes and points-of-interest selected, and key features are available at the touch of a finger. Where ViewRanger’s 3D Panorama maps are available, you can point at a landscape feature such as a hill and ViewRanger will identify and name that feature. You can then browse photos and information that other users have uploaded and associated with that feature.

ViewRanger has also enhanced its software to allow over-the-air access to a growing library of navigable leisure route guides. Further enhancements within the software add extensions to ViewRanger’s BuddyBeacon tracking capability. A Buddy Trail is now shown and you can set a BuddyBeacon as your navigation target.
