TGO Challenge 2018 | Route planning – Viewranger vs OS Maps | Vlog

Talking about my route planning and the tools that I’m using.
What is better, Viewranger or OS Maps?

I don’t mention the OS Maps app because it requires the subscription to be available offline. You only get the standard map with the ‘free’ version.

If you buy their maps you should be able to download that part that you’ve bought (I have not tested this) so I it could be an alternative to the Viewranger app. I feel that the OS Maps app is better at some things but more clunky to use. I also haven’t field tested is like I have with Viewranger hence I can’t make any recommendations based on experience.

 

New hiking destination?

I’m always thinking of new places to explore and one of my dreams this year has been Norway and a four day hike through Jotunheimen which I hope I get the time to do this next year, 2014. A friend and I has also very loosely talked about England or Scotland and after watching this video I have to add that destination to my list!
