Description & Details


GPS, compass and maps toolkit

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 Polaris star finder, gyro horizon, rangefinder, sextant, inclinometer, angular calculator and camera. It saves a custom location, navigates precisely to it later, shows it on maps and using augmented reality displays detailed GPS info, measures distances, sizes, angles, and does a lot more.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON ANDROID RELEASE

One of the best cross-country GPS navigation tools is now available on Android. Most features are implemented, however, some features available on other platforms are to be done. The multi-target tracking, star catalogue and coordinate converter will come later as a free update. Also, instead of having multiple apps, on Android it is a single free app with a paid unlock of premium features.

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 object positions, info and directions to them overlaid over camera or maps.

Save current position, add a point from maps, manually enter location coordinates.

Find the saved place later simply by following directional arrows.

Spyglass tracks your target and shows its info – distance, direction, azimuth, elevation and estimated time of arrival.

GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER

Find and track your location and get detailed 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 POLARIS, SUN AND MOON & NAVIGATE BY STARS

Track positions of Polaris, 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.

As we do each month, we combed through whatever notable offerings we could get our hands on and picked out some of the best new apps that you should check out, either because they are useful, fun, or just plain interesting to see.

Has potential but needs work. I bought this app but was disappointed that it does not allow you to save multiple waypoints/locations. As a compass, it is quite good with a lot of features. I'm looking forward to the added features planned for it. Until then I'll probably will not use it as much as my other gps compass tracking app.

Top and bottom are cut off, making the program unusable.

Not working with pure Android Oreo on Google Pixel 2 XL. The menu bar is inaccessible.

I bought the full version and was very disappointed at how poorly it compared to the iOS version. I wrote my comments here and the devs answered right back to assure me it would improve shortly so now I give this app a 5 in anticipation of what is to come... Thanks devs for your prompt response and hopefully improvements as well :)

This is probably the best tool app I have used. The detail, design and accuracy are amazing. Cant wait to put this to more use on hikes, walks and my car.
