Viewranger adds five countries to its European topo map coverage
Augmentra, the editor of Viewranger, an outdoor navigation software for S60 Smartphones, said it added detailed topographic map coverage for a further five European countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, and Switzerland. Great Britain, Finland, and Slovenia were already available.

Detailed topographical maps from National Mapping Agencies can be selected and immediately downloaded over a GPRS or wireless connection directly on to a Symbian S60 handset. Once downloaded, the maps remain on the handset allowing ViewRanger to be used in the most rural location without requiring a mobile network connection to be available.

Depending on the region pricing may vary but as an example Great Britain’s national parks (a 498Mb data file) cost €32.49.
