Sharing tracks

A track is either public or private.  A track can only be shared if it is public.  We don't support sharing to a closed group.   Before a track can be shared it must be uploaded to our website my.viewranger.com.

To upload and individual track in the app tap the Profile tab (in green bar), Tracks, tap the track, tap 3 dots at the top and tap upload track.

To upload all tracks in the app tap the Menu tab (in green bar), Sync content.

Track privacy options

A track can be set to public or private.  If you want other users to see your tracks they must be set to public.

Global level privacy settings

Global track privacy setting (public or private) can be set in the my.viewranger.com web site by using My Account, My Profile, Track preferences and press save.  This will apply to all new tracks.  To change the privacy of all old track use the menu item Routes and track, My tracks and the Edit all button at the top.

Share tracks by turning the track into a published route

It is easy to convert a track to a route.  Preview the track at my.viewranger.com then use the menu button and 'create route from this track'.  Then, in the route list, edit the route.  Add text and pictures.  Publish the route to our route database where other users can find, download and follow.  See related page below.

Sharing tracks with other people and applications using GPX files

Tracks can be exported to GPX files from within the app or via the website.  GPX is an open format supported by many different web sites and applications.  For more information see the related page at the foot of then page.
