How well does the iPhone battery life hold up when using Viewranger?
My Samsung symbian phone is up for replacement soon – I can’t get a whole day’s riding out of it when using Viewranger for trying to record a track. Max is about 4-5 hours before the phone emits a dying Tamagotchi whimper and stops recording your progress.Posted 7 years agoCountZeroMember
I’ve not tried a whole day tracking with Viewranger, don’t have the stamina these days, but I’ve had map apps running in the background with the camera in use and other apps and had the best part of a day from it, which I think is pretty good, and I’m getting a couple of plug-in battery chargers from 7dayshop that only cost £7 and you can carry around in your pocket as emergency backup. Viewranger is excellent, and fortunately I had the DVD with all the maps on from when I had my old N95. Copying from the laptop is really easy via wifi.Posted 7 years ago
I have used viewranger on previous symbian and android phones, but I’m really put off by the £14.99 price tag for the iPhone. Is it really that much better than motion x? Can you transfer viewranger maps files that you have on PC to the iPhone to save having to buy more map tiles?Posted 7 years ago
I’ve been using viewranger for 6 or 7 years. All the iPhone apps I’ve tried have been inferior to viewranger, but they generally only cost a quid, and the only real benefit of viewranger I can see is os maps. I think I’ll give it a bit more thought before parting with the cash.
EDIT – When I say inferior I am referring to the symbian version of viewranger which is a fantastic application with so many features. The Android version was a work in progress and a long way off the symbian version. Which I hardly used because it wasn’t as good as sportstracker etc. So I’m holding back from buying the iPhone app for the time being.Posted 7 years ago
Well I took the plunge last night (after 4 grande cans of stella I might add) and bought the viewranger app, uploaded my old south downs maps from my PC to it before realising you needed to get the license key, so emailed support at 23:35 requesting the license key and got a response at 23:45 with the license key. Now that’s what I call unbelievable customer service.
Have to say it looks amazing on the iPhone 4’s display, looking forward to testing it out tonight.Posted 7 years ago
