I have been using Viewranger for around 4 years and it is perfect for navigating in mountainous areas and national parks and especially using the offline mode. This means downloading the map area to your phone so you do not need a mobile connection before your journey. Set up right you should not need a battery pack but you should carry them just in case and especially in cold weather.
Viewranger can be used stand-alone but I would always have a paper map too and together they are a great toolkit to have on days out walking or hiking. The ability to create content rich GPX files to share globally makes this software the best in my personal opinion.
A big thank you to Russell Cox at Viewranger TM for your support with the Urban Ranger Project.
