Cambridge, UK – Every year, the most creative and imaginative people in the technology field gather to celebrate the world’s finest Smartphone apps at the annual Appy Awards. Congratulations to ViewRanger for their selection as a top three finalist in the mapping / location based category. The finalists and winners of the Appy Awards will be announced March 19th at a reception in San Francisco hosted by leading online communications firm, MediaPost.

Apple and Android users who enjoy the outdoors have a powerful, dedicated GPS navigation tool for hiking, mountain biking and any other activity with the new ViewRanger USA app. The app includes the highest quality topographic mapping information in the United States with 250,000 miles of public land trails that can be downloaded in advance and cached for access when cell phone coverage is unavailable. The route, once selected and downloaded, can be enhanced with active navigation along with GPS triggered electronic guides.

ViewRanger supports all the features expected of a top-end GPS device, including track recording, waypoint navigation, map coordinate entry and GPX file exchange. The app offers a choice of 30 metrics with customizable text, dial or graph view screens. It also uses the smartphone’s connectivity to support map download on the move, real-time phone-to-phone and phone-to-web location sharing, and wireless synchronization with the web based route planning and social media sharing tools at My.ViewRanger.com.

The ViewRanger USA edition app, currently on launch promo, costs just $7.99 with unlimited map access. Expert guided trails cost around $1 per trail to download. Learn more about ViewRanger at www.viewranger.com.
