VantagePoint has teamed up with ViewRanger to offer readers one of two subscriptions every month until January 2020.
ViewRanger is a world-leading walking, hiking and outdoor app. It helps people plan, track, and share their activities. To date they have over 1.3 million registered users here in the UK and over 3.5 million elsewhere worldwide. The app is free to use with free worldwide mapping available. Users can create routes, share the activities they have completed, add photographs and also download walks with maps to their mobile phones. The Premium version allows many great features, including using your camera to identify peaks and places, privately sharing your real-time location with friends and family, as well as a number of maps including full OS mapping which are all also available offline.
The app is free to download on Apple App Store and Google Play. It works on iPhones, Android smartphones, Apple Watch and Wear OS watches.
We are also offering readers an introductory offer on the UK Premium + OS maps subscription as follows:
• a free 7 day trial to encourage people to try walking one weekend
• 10% discount off the first year of Premium membership (normal price £24.99 per annum including VAT)
To take up this offer and for more information, please visit the website here.
I have now started to use this app when I plan a walk, when out on a walk and also have used one or two of the (free) routes that can be downloaded and then followed using your mobile device and am very impressed with it. You can also record your walks, which I have done for a walk I will be sharing with VanatgePoint readers in our August 2019 issue. and what I particularly like is that I can just go and walk and using the app, can simply just follow footpaths and make my walk as long or as short as I want.
If you enjoy walking, please do give it a try. You can enter the competition below or take up one of the offers above. Happy walking!
