GPS set up?
« on: April 29, 2019 »

Hi

I used viewranger on my android phone for a while and found it great, really user friendly but had to take it off eventually as my phone got older and memory was an issue. Would like to get back into using GPS again but not sure which set up to go for.

Looked at dedicated GPS units but are pricey, would like to go back to viewranger but my phone would die if i put it back on. What GPS set ups (if any) are you guys using?

Cheers

You could pick up a cheap Android phone or even a second hand one just for Viewranger. It would be much less than a dedicated Garmin etc.
