Interesting things about the Operating Guide and the Kurviger App:

Operating Guide:

The information in the operating guide refers to the versions specified in the topics. By and large, what is described should also help to simplify the operation of more recent versions. The information is without guarantee, as the latest changes to the app may not have been taken into account in the documentation.
In order to use the app and the advantages of their settings without any problems, you should take a little time to get familiar with them. To get to know the app and as a guide, this Operating guide is available for you.
To learn how to use the app without or with subscription (see below), it is recommended to read the operating guide topics without Kurviger Pro annotation, for app with subscription (Kurviger Pro subscription) additionally the topic marked with “Kurviger Pro” if necessary.
Links to these topics of the Operating guide and further information about the Kurviger App can be found in the respective texts or at the end of the page of the Operating guide topics.
The links to the respective topics are preferably grouped at the end of the page in order to avoid interrupting the description of individual facts and thus the flow of reading as much as possible. The additional info can then be reached in case of knowledge gaps under the given links.

It is recommended to read the topics given above, then most of the link jumps will be unnecessary. In addition, problems with the app can be avoided and save trouble and inquiries in the forum.
In order to be able to read the guide like a book, links to the previous and / or next topic are inserted at the beginning and at the end of the topics.

The operation with the basic elements is described. E.g. open the Setting dialog:

  • Menu button > Settings >

The above notation means: Touch the Menu button to open the main menu. Touch the Settings selection in the main menu to open the settings menu. There you can make further selections and finally change settings.
Experienced users can partly deviate from this due to the flexibility of the app.

For some elements, different actions can be triggered with a short or long touch. E.g. a short touch of a waypoint displays an info about the waypoint, a long touch of a waypoint opens a menu for the waypoint. The corresponding shorthand notations:

  • Waypoint (Short) >
  • Waypoint (Long) >

To get to know the app is recommended:

  • Internet connection should / must be available.
  • First read the “Getting started” guide (Link at the end of the page).
  • While reading this guide, practice with the app.

App, without and with subscription (Kurviger Pro subscription):

The app Kurviger is a great tool to create routes, to load, save, display and share routes with friends. You can also explore areas with or without a route in follow mode.
With Kurviger Pro subscription you have more possibilities (see below).
The app can be adjusted very flexibly to the device and the needs of the user.

Kurviger App is only available for Android devices.

The actual app Kurviger (version 2.x) takes into account new Android rules and is a new concept with basic features free of charge and optional there can be used more features with a subscription (Kurviger Pro subscription) for monthly or yearly fees. These features are marked with Pro in the app.
The app Kurviger (Free) (version 1.x) of their former or current users is updated to the app Kurviger (version 2). There the basic features can still be used for free.
The app Kurviger Pro (version 1.x) is maintained with its previous features until further notice. It can only be used and updated by its current users. New features will not be added in Kurviger Pro (1.x) but only in Kurviger (version 2) without or with subscription.
Each app (Kurviger (version 2), Kurviger Pro 1.x) is an independent app and can be used independent from each other.

The app Kurviger with Kurviger Pro subscription (and partly the app Kurviger Pro (1.x)) with the usable Pro-Features offers more things than the app Kurviger without subscription. The topic marked Kurviger PRO of the guide describes the most important things of Kurviger with the Pro-Features. Short overview:
