(Updated 28th December 2008)

Following the Christmas break, sales and support are now available as normal.

Orders placed on the afternoon of 31st December or 1st January will be posted on 2nd January - though there are also several map products available to download from the store immediately. We've just added North England, South England and Wales (Scotland very soon) and also Lapland and North Finland.

We wish you a very happy 2008!

Beta updated and N95 firmware

posted by Mike Brocklehurst on Saturday, December 01, 2007

The ViewRanger beta has been updated to v2.4.6 and is available to download. If you'd like to use the beta and haven't requested it from us yet then please email your phone model (e.g. N95) and IMEI number (dial *#06#, it is a 15 digit number starting 35) to support at

The details of the changes in the beta are available in the beta release history.

There is a problem with the newest N95 firmware that stops ViewRanger saving its preferences. The affected firmware is v20/v21 for the N95 and v10/v11 for the N95-8Gb. To check your firmware version dial *#0000#. This new beta, v2.4.6 or later, saves preferences in a different way to avoid the problem.

Finally, with Christmas fast approaching we've added a page of Christmas gift ideas.
