Some answers to frequently asked questions!
– this map is only available for the EastWest Maps phone app.
– the format is not compatible with the ViewRanger app or Garmin devices.
– whilst the EastWest Maps app has similar core functions to the ViewRanger app, it does not have navigation functions per se. We will likely add some route planning facility in a future upgrade but overall our objective is to keep the core function of displaying map & location to the forefront.
– EastWest Maps does not run on desktop systems.
– planning a route is best done on paper editions of the maps where you can see a wider view.
– always carry a print version of the mapping, phone apps/ batteries can and do fail.
– note to iPhone users. Very occasionally the map display may turn black. If this happens, close the app, connect to the internet via mobile data or wi-fi, open the app and all will be restored. You can then disconnect from the internet, you only need a brief connection.
