    Just downloaded viewranger, then went for free Trail but keeps spinning now
    every time I try to get onto an area to explore or to see a map it keeps asking
    for payment or when I see the free trail on the bottom left on list it directs me to pay £24.99p
    Is it best to close account? Thought this would be simple to use!!

    PS No one from Viewranger answers the phone or bothers to return a call !

    I don't think you get any worthwhile mapping in the free trial so if you have selected is maps to view, as soon as you zoom beyond 1:250,000 it will say you need to pay.

    The full years OS subscription makes the best sense.

    Or buy Alpinequest £6.99 and ask on here for free mapping of areas you want covered.
    Then you can use as many maps ( as long as compatible) as you want for free.

    They did a deal on all the national parks @50k, a tenner I think. I put a tenner credit on and the individual tiles aren't expensive.

    Another happy Alpinequest user here. The guy behind this app even implemented the feature I asked for (Proximity alert).
