  • TripView sports computer to monitor data during a journey and analyze performance
  • Buddy Beacon to transmit location to friends and family; see the location on your ViewRanger handset or through the web
  • Exchange notes and photos to share experiences of the landscape via ViewRanger’s over-the-air Information Exchange
  • “Having achieved Symbian Signed status, we are delighted that ViewRanger is one of the first third-party mapping and navigation applications to support the Nokia N95 and its integrated GPS,” said Mike Brocklehurst, CTO, Augmentra Ltd.

    “ViewRanger and the N95 set a new benchmark for functionality, ease-of-use and convenience in outdoor GPS,” he added.

    The ViewRanger software runs on the Symbian S60 smartphone platform and transforms a Nokia or any other S60 handsets into a full-featured trail navigation system.
