ViewRanger Outdoors Adventure GPS Launches On Amazon's Kindle Fire Tablets

January 15th 2014 - Cambridge, UK - ViewRanger, the award-winning mapping and navigation app, is now available from the Amazon Appstore to download for Amazon Kindle Fire and other Android smart phones and tablets. ViewRanger helps outdoor enthusiasts to plan, navigate, and share their walking, cycling, skiing and riding outdoor adventures. Following its release, ViewRanger has leapt to number one ranking in its category within the Amazon Store in France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

ViewRanger is free to download and provides unlimited access to a range of mapping, such as OpenStreetMap, OpenCycleMap, and Bing Ariel imagery. The maps can be downloaded and stored on your Kindle Fire, or other android device, for use later. So you don't need mobile connection to view, plan and follow routes.

For activities where detailed knowledge of the area is important, you can also purchase high quality, topographic maps from national mapping agencies, such as Ordnance Survey, IGN France, BKG Germany, CNIG Spain, USGS USA, Statkart Norway, Lantmateriet Sweden and many more. Licensed mapping is available for 22 countries around the globe, including USA, Canada and New Zealand and most European countries, all of which can be purchased from within the app.

One of the unique features of ViewRanger is its extensive trail guide library which offers thousands of recommended routes from leading travel publishers, tourism organizations, and local experts from the ViewRanger community. The routes include detailed descriptions, photographs and advice on the difficulty, length and elevation which help you to select the best walk or cycle trail. ViewRanger also features active navigation which will help you avoid getting lost.

It is also possible to track your own trail to share with friends or recommend to other ViewRanger users. To make this easy, there is a free to use companion website MyViewranger.com which provides tools to plot routes, analyse tracks, view maps on PC & Mac and print route maps.

The ViewRanger app is free to download from Amazon Apps Store. Premium topographic maps can be purchased from within the app using your Amazon account.

The app is also available to download through Google Play and for Apple iPhone and iPad devices. Once purchased, maps can be shared between devices owned by the same user.

But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
