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 tent manufacturer in the UK – Trekkertent

Go and check out Trekkertent. They’ve just started their production of different shelters and so far so good in my opinion.

They have some really nice looking products that are not too pricy! I personally like the Drift 1. It weighs in at 0.94kg and it basically looks like the Zpacks Hexamid Solplex tent but in silnylon rather than cuben fiber, which makes it a cheaper alternative. The Stealth looks really nice too at only 590g.


My guesses are that they will start making those models for two person too in the future.
