Hiking with GPS app on your mobile phone

Mobile GPS Apps

The easiest and safest way to hike is with a Navigation App on your mobile phone. Therefore, for each of our hikes and treks, we provide also a GPS file alongside the hiking map.

For each hike we supply the GPS data in two formats:

  • Inside the Hike eBook, you will find a link to “NAVIGATE THE HIKE WITH GPS”.
  • This link will open the GPS file inside the ViewRanger App.
