Gr8 Walking App

May 29, 2015

Gr8 new walking app, well new to us anyway.

We’ve been tracking our walks etc with Strava ‘cos that’s what I used to use on my bike. But we recently wanted to follow a preset GPS (.gpx) route already mapped by derbyshirewalking.

A quick google and we found www.viewranger.com which can display routes, track your GPS position and track your movements.

Fantastic! Our android phones easily displayed the imported route, and an occasional quick check of the phone on route displayed our exact GPS position – even on a craggy outcrop (we were in the right place! 🙂 ) We have yet to play with it properly but it did the job on a quick jaunt around Bunster Hill.

Oh, and recommend this short circular walk from derbyshirewalking.co.uk– a bit of everything.
