ViewRanger has been acquired by Outdoor Active and the app and website are scheduled to be turned off at the end of February 2022.
A document has been prepared to help you make the switch to Outdoor Active, it is available on the website on the Documents page, it is located under the heading 'Training & Education Documents' and is called 'Outdoor Active - Transition from ViewRanger'.
The document covers all the tasks that we have used ViewRanger for. It is recommended that you take a couple of tasks at a time and practice them on your phone so you get familiar with them before moving on to the next task.
If you run into problems or have a question please feel free to contact me, I may be able to help, otherwise you can mail your query to the Outdoor Active helpdesk.

A two part document is now available on the website titled 'Outdoor Active - Beginners Guide', you will find it on the Documents page in the Training & Education Documents section.
As the title suggests it is intended for members who have not used a GPS app previously such as ViewRanger. It is also suitable for anyone who tried ViewRanger but never got to grips with the functionality.
Part 1 covers how to record, save and send a Track. This is what a Leader needs to do in order to record their walk and forward the Track to the Treasurer for uploading on the website.
Part 2 covers creating and following a Route for a walk that you want to lead in the future.
If you have any questions please feel free to get in contact with myself or Mark Taylor.
