Spyglass App Details

Spyglass is an essential offline GPS app for outdoors and off-road navigation. Packed with tools it serves as binoculars, heads-up display, hi-tech compass with offline maps, gyrocompass, GPS receiver, waypoint tracker, speedometer, altimeter, Sun, Moon and star finder, gyro horizon, rangefinder, coordinate converter, sextant, inclinometer, angular calculator and camera. It saves your custom places and waypoints, navigates precisely to them later, shows them on maps and using real-time augmented reality displays detailed GPS info, measures distances, sizes, angles, and does a lot more. COMPASS & GYROCOMPASS Accuracy improvement techniques, special compass modes and calibration methods available in Spyglass only make it a real instrument – the most advanced and accurate digital compass. FINDER, TRACKER & AR NAVIGATION Spyglass operates in 3D and uses augmented reality to show real-time object positions, info and directions to them overlaid over camera or maps. Save current position, add points from maps, manually enter location coordinates and bearings, add stars by hand or use a built-in star catalogue. Find saved places and objects later simply by following directional arrows. Spyglass tracks multiple targets simultaneously and shows their info – distance, direction, azimuth, elevation and estimated time of arrival. Copy, paste and share locations, coordinates and map links using many supported formats. GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER Find and track your location and get detailed real-time GPS data – coordinates in dozens of formats, altitude, course, current, maximum and vertical speed, using imperial, metric, nautical and surveying units. OFFLINE MAPS See your and targets’ positions on maps using different map styles and alternative map providers – plan waypoints and measure distances. Offline maps optimized for retina displays are available for download. TRACK STARS, SUN AND MOON & NAVIGATE BY STARS Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy. OPTICAL RANGEFINDER Measure distances to objects in real time with a rangefinder reticle similar to sniper sights. SEXTANT, ANGULAR CALCULATOR AND INCLINOMETER Find out heights of objects and distances to them – measure visually and calculate dimensions and distances. CAMERA Take pictures overlaid with all available GPS, positional and directional data. DEMO & HELP Videos: http://j.mp/spyglass_vids Manuals: http://j.mp/spyglass_help

    My favorite app by far! Being a pilot, it gives me aviation quality navigation on every hike.
  • Outstanding app

    By plastiqman
    So much info at ones finger tips, a pleasure to use
  • Good documentation

    As apps do more and more, and become increasingly complex, it’s essential to have some sort of user guide if you’re to use all the capabilities. Spyglass does, and has done so for years. I appreciate that. In addition, the Spyglass developers keep the app up to date, and add *real* improvements periodically, not just pretty pictures that take up space but don’t improve functionality. I appreciate that as well. There’s a small but steep learning curve to use this app. But you’ll quickly see what it’s all about, and you’ll start nodding your head and smiling, as I did when I first used it.
  • Professional Navigation Level

    This is "the real thing" in terms of professional navigation. • Novices be ready for a steep learning curve. BUT THERE ARE LOTS OF MANUALS ON Mr. Pavel’s interweb site. • Morons like me can’t even figure out how to begin using it. • I got it when it was free about 3 years ago and I still have not successfully used it even once. • I just bought a $4 compass at a local camping store and now at least I know how to find N, S, E, and W. • But I’m an idiot. • I highly encourage regular people to buy this app.
  • Love this app

    As a retired airline, I certainly enjoy the real-time information..

    Great work. The compass gets in the way sometimes. It would be nice to turn it off sometimes. The only other feature I would like to see is the ability to enter a saved point and specify another saved point as a destination and it give a distance. At present I have to enter my saved points into another app to obtain a distance, big pain. This is the only reason I cut a star.
