ViewRanger supports Isle of Wight Walking Festival 2011 and makes festival routes available for download to Apple, Android, and Symbian smartphones.
This year the developer of the highly popular ViewRanger GPS outdoor mapping and navigation app is upping their involvement as a “Festival Partner” and will be publishing a selection of official festival walks available to download to smartphones free of charge for the period of the event.
The Isle of Wight Walking Festival is the UK's largest such festival. Visitors planning to get involved in the festival will be able to get even more from their time on the Isle, by installing ViewRanger on their smartphone. The ViewRanger “Open” version available for Apple, Android & Symbian devices (£2.39-£4.00), comes complete with web based street and terrain maps. However, this can be easily enhanced by installing whole of Isle of Wight Explorer 1:25K mapping.
Plus, ViewRanger confirmed that all routes on the Isle of Wight published through ViewRanger by Walkingworld will also be available to download in the ViewRanger app for free for the duration of the festival.
