Re: viewranger

I know what you mean about it seeming casual and disposable now. I think there are two elements to that. The first is that phones take some incredible pictures which are quickly and easily shared. With so many people taking so many good pictures in increasingly more accessible locations, great photo...

Re: viewranger

Exactly Simon. I used to be a fairly keen photographer, but that was back in 35mm / 6x6 film days. I had a darkroom and did my own processing and printing. Digital has spoiled photography for me, even though I know that it's massively more convenient now. I understand shutter speeds, apertures, dep...

Re: viewranger

I'm very interested in this. Tracie has finally managed to drag me into this century by buying me a smart phone. I don't really want it and I don't think I will like it, but it's here now and I have to find a way of getting on with it. Like the throttle, how you use it is entirely up to you :-) (Al...

Re: viewranger

I've used OSMand for years, on phone and tablet, both on the odd lane in the UK and overseas on family holidays. It's very good, and not expensive to upgrade to the paid version which removes the limitation on map downloads. I'm also trialing the Ordnance Survey option, which gives a month's free su...
