ViewRanger™, the leading personal outdoor GPS navigation software for mobile phones, is now available for the Nokia 5800 and other Symbian S60 touch screen mobile phones. The ViewRanger application, which is popular with outdoor activity enthusiasts across Europe, takes full advantage of the touch screen to put detailed topographic maps at your fingertips and offer a simplified navigation and outdoor exploration experience.
ViewRanger is a sophisticated but easy-to-use off-road satellite navigation application that offers instant access to detailed topographic mapping across Europe along with rich content including points-of-interest and leisure route guides. Maps can be downloaded directly to the handset via WLAN or mobile internet, downloaded via the web to be side-loaded onto a handset, or are available pre-loaded on SD memory-cards.
The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic handset is a great device choice for running ViewRanger. On the high-resolution 3.2" widescreen display, ViewRanger's detailed topographic maps are shown in vibrant colour and visual clarity. The 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens is ideal for geo-recording your outdoor experiences and locating and sharing them with ViewRanger's TravelLog™ capability. With fingertip and stylus control, automatic screen rotation, and tactile feedback, the 5800 allows rapid and intuitive manipulation of the topographic map and ViewRanger's unique 3D Panoramic Viewpoint maps.
Maps can be dragged, routes and points-of-interest selected, and key features are available, literally, at your fingertips. Where ViewRanger's 3D Panorama maps are available, you can point at a landscape feature such as a hill and ViewRanger will identify and name that feature. You can then browse photos and information that other users have uploaded and associated with that feature.
Location Based Route Search
ViewRanger has also enhanced its software to allow over-the-air access to a growing library of navigable leisure route guides. The company is partnering with content publishers to make their leisure route content available to be searched, browsed and downloaded direct to the handset. The first partner to deliver their content through this platform is Walkingworld.com who offer a library of over 4500 detailed and illustrated walking guides across the UK.
