If you create your own POI you can give it a name, a description, set its icon
and set its category. It records its creation time, which is a useful way of logging
where you have been or when and where a photograph was taken.
There are various ways to create a POI:
1. Directly in the Map view using the Options > Create > Create POI menu
option. You will be prompted to enter a name for the POI, then the POI will
appear in the centre of the screen. You can move it using the cursor keys or
on touch phones by touching and dragging. Press Done when you have
finished positioning it.
2. Import from another application or web site. POIs can be imported using
either the GPX or LOC file formats. To import, go to the Organizer and
choose Import / Export > Import GPX / LOC from the Options menu.
3. Take a photo and create a POI that links to it. From the Map view choose
Create > Take photo & mark. You will be swapped to the camera
application, from where you can take a photo. Swap back to ViewRanger by
exiting the camera. You will be prompted to name the POI. You will also be
prompted to enter a description for the photo, but you can leave this blank if
you wish. The POI will be created at the centre of the map view (you can
move it by pressing the cursor pad centre or
button and choosing Move
point, or on touch phones by selecting it with the select cursor then
dragging it ). If the Map view is locked to the GPS, then the POI is
positioned at your current location. The POI’s image list will contain the
newly taken photo. When you view the POI’s Details the photo will be
shown. The POI is given the icon of a small camera.
4. Match images to track. While out record a track. Take photos using the
phone’s camera. When you get back select the track and choose Match
images to track. For each photo taken during the span of the track
ViewRanger will create a new POI and associate the photo with the POI.
The location will be calculated from the track. The POIs are grouped into a

select a phone number or e-mail address you can phone or
message it as appropriate.

A POI set is a group of points of interest.
A licensed POI set contains POIs that have been licensed from a commercial
source such as Ordnance Survey. These POI sets cannot be edited, but they
can be updated from the server so you can get the latest licensed data.
Creating a POI Set
To create a new, empty POI set go to Organizer > POI Sets. From the Options
menu choose New POI set and then enter a name.
You can now move POIs into this set by selecting a POI in one of Organizer’s
views, pressing the cursor pad centre or
button, choosing Move to POI set
and then selecting the new POI set.
Most views listing POIs provide a Move all to POI set command, which moves
all the POIs in that list into another POI set of your choice.
The search results view has a Copy all to POI set command, which copies all
the search results into a POI set of your choice.
Importing A POI Set
You can also create a POI set by importing a GPX or LOC file:
1. Copy the GPX or LOC file containing the points of interest to the
ViewRanger folder on your memory card.
2. Go to the Organizer, select the POI sets item and press the cursor pad
3. Press Options and choose Import / export > Import POI set
4. ViewRanger will show a list of GPX and LOC files – choose the one you
wish to use
5. A POI set is created. It has the same name as the file.
A GPX file is a GPS interchange format file, a format that is becoming
increasingly common. A LOC file is a location file, commonly used in
You can also use Import / Export > Import all Landmarks to import all the
Landmarks in the phone's Landmarks database.
Setting the POI Set Icon
To use custom icons, create a folder called Icons in the ViewRanger folder on
the memory card (E:\ViewRanger\Icons\) and copy bitmap files into it. If the
bitmap has transparency information that will be used. If the bitmap does not
have transparency then any pixels that are near white will be made transparent.
The name of the bitmap file will be used as the name of the icon, so a bitmap
called garden.bmp would have a name of ‘garden’.
If the GPX file specifies an icon for a POI, then ViewRanger will use the
You can give a POI set a default icon by creating an icon with the same name
as the POI set. For example, if the POI set is created from a file called
garden.gpx, then it will be named ‘garden’ and will use the icon named ‘garden’
as its default icon.
The default icon is used if either the GPX file does not specify an icon, or if the
specified icon cannot be found.
Viewing or Hiding a POI Set
You can see a list of a POI set’s contents by going to Organizer > POI Sets,
pressing the cursor pad centre or
button and choosing List contents.
You can see a POI set on the map, with everything else temporarily hidden by
choosing View set on map. This will take you to the map view, which will pan
and zoom to show all the POIs. Other POIs, routes and tracks will not be
shown. To return to the usual display choose Options > Show all POIs.
POI sets appear in the Filter view, and can be switched on and off from there.
They can also be switched on and off from the POI set list view.
Match images to track.
Photos can be geo-located using a recorded track. ViewRanger will create a
POI for each photo, taking its location from the track and time the photo was
taken. The photo is associated with the POI. The POIs are grouped into a set.
To do this select the track you recorded and choose Match images to track.
POI And Feature Categories
All POIs and features have a category. For example a feature might be a
“Town” and a POI might be a “Museum”. Categories are grouped together and
there are up to 3 levels.
One of the top-level groups is ‘Places/areas’. This has several sub-categories,
‘Town/city/village’; ‘Lake/sea/river’; ‘Hills/cliffs/islands’; ‘Wood/forest’; ‘Other’.
In turn most of these have their own sub-categories, so ‘Lake/sea/river’ has
‘Lake/loch’; ‘Pond/tarn’; ‘Coast/sea’; ‘Sand beach’; ‘Mud/rock beach’;
Categories are used in various places:
1. To indicate the type of a POI on the Details
2. In the filter view, where you can control the
display of whole categories and sub-
3. In the search view, where you can restrict
your search to a particular category or sub-
4. In the panorama view where the category
determines how an area feature is drawn
You can assign a category to your POIs using the Set category menu item,
which appears in the context menu when you press the cursor pad centre or
The Filter view is used to control which POIs and features are displayed in the
map and panorama. It allows you to switch whole categories and sub-
categories of POI on and off, and also to switch POI sets on and off individually.
The Filter view is accessed from the Organizer. Alternatively it can be reached
from the Panorama view’s display menu.
The first few lines of the Filter view show the top-level categories. They have a
on their right indicating that they have sub-categories. When you
press the cursor pad centre or
button you are given the option to switch the
whole category off, switch the whole category on or to see its list of sub-
If a category or POI set is switched on it has a tick
to its left and if it is off it
has a cross
to its left. If a category’s sub-categories are a mix of on and off,
then the category is shown with a mixed on and off icon
The Filter also lists the POI sets, which can be switched on and off individually.
Any POI sets you have imported or created are shown in the Filter view after
the categories, with their custom icon if available. Landing stages, geocaching
and NatTrust are POI sets in the example below. Press the cursor pad centre or
button to toggle a POI set or sub-category on and off.
The Search Results also appear as a separate POI set that can be switched on
When you press Back any changes are applied. The Options menu has an item
to discard any changes, and also has options to switch everything off and

you don’t want to send your location).
If you highlight a web link and choose Open link, then the link will be opened in
the web browser.
If you highlight a file link, of the form file:E:\Images\image1.jpg then the file
specified will be opened on the phone using the appropriate application.
If you highlight the Images or Notes link and press the cursor pad centre or
button, you see the list of Images or Notes associated with the POI.
