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. Also, instead of having multiple apps, on Android it is a single free app with a paid unlock of premium features. Be patient and report bugs, if any, directly via our email or the support page.

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.

Absolutely amazing this even works on aircraft to show you your speed direction and altitude!

Extremely disappointing from so many directions. I wasted my money, don't waste yours.

Not sure if its anything more than a compass. Unsure if i want to spend 5.99 to try out the other features. Should be a full version of all features enable with a time lock option.

The recent update has added a lot of needed features. The ability to adjust the compass based on a star or the sun/moon position is cool. The app is pretty hard on battery life and the fonts are pretty small. That is why, for now, I'm giving this 4 stars and not five. Excellent app overall.

I upgraded to pro thingking this is one fantastic app. However, I was disappointed when I tried storing locations/targets through the map selevtion optipn. Right after pressing done in marking and saving the location, the app suddenly closes. Thereafter, whenever I start the app, it immediately closes :-( In desperation, I tried reinstalling the app but the same problem happens. Please help me resolve this issue the soonest as I am still optimistic that it will help me tremendously im installing 25 wireless antennas scattered in a 50km radius area. SOS!!! Please help me.

While the app sounds interesting & promising, the features that make it so are basically unavailable to try out before you pay $6 (for a compass app?). If the in-app purchase ever goes on sale for a reasonable price, like $2, and it would somehow come to my attention, I'll probably make the purchase. If I didn't already have other compass apps installed, I could always rely on the one in Google Maps (it's free). ;)

On the Note 8 it will not go into the settings. It just shows them for a split second and then goes back to compass. Please fix so I can try it.

great app..once you learn how to use correctly it has features others do not.. research before you complain.. everything works fine here...Great app on stock 8.1.0

I have bad experience with add location. Always unfortunately spyglass has stopped again and again.
deven 2
Displayed everything upside down... I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, it displayed the HUD right side up but no map... 🤔 Can't say i didn't give it a shot. 😏 Perhaps this app isn't compatible with Alcatel Idol 4...
Slappy 2
Huge potential, lackluster implementation and support response. I asked why I had a conflagration of the alphabet in the center of my screen using the optical viewer and received a response that was a non-answer answer. Once corrected, I'd gladly give five stars.
