IMPROVED GYROCOMPASS MODE

The gyrocompass mode can now be used as a primary mode. Now in the gyrocompass mode the magnetic sensor is referenced continuously until a manual adjustment to the heading is made using the two finger sliding gesture. Unless the manual adjustment is in effect the app acts as a gyro-assisted magnetic compass.

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.

TACTICAL GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER

Find and track your location and get detailed real-time GPS data – coordinates in dozens of civil and military formats, altitude, course, current and maximum speed, using imperial, metric, nautical and military units.

MAPS

See your and targets’ positions on maps using different map styles and alternative map providers – plan waypoints and measure distances.

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.
