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

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

    By YouNeedABetterITGuy
    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.
  • Great app

    By Six8
    I found using this not in military and civilian life has been instrumental to Mission success love this app keep it coming
  • Useful

    By Wtyson
    Handy app to have. So useful it is hard to know where to start. If you have a scout troop this is what you need
  • Super neat app!

    By TradArcher
    Totally worth buying. I use it while exploring to check out our altitude and other cool info.
  • Fascinating app.

    By hesskw
    This is unique so far as I know. It is my go-to for latitude and longitude. Also elevation. There are lots more levels that I have not learned to use. I wish the documentation were more extensive.
  • Perfect Companion

    By RamgeT
    For either the Pro or the Novice this app is indispensable. Its flexibility and multiuse options make it indispensable for the nature buff as well as the casual occasional observer. It seems to be accurate and repeatable.
  • The best navigation system on the App Store

    By JoeCross318
    This is well worth your money. I haven’t been able to find anything that is even close to SpyGlass on the App Store or on Google play Store. Hands down the absolute best full featured GPS system with much, much more than you can expect.
  • Brilliant!

    By KVB-FM
    The amazing Spyglass is an extraordinary tool, tapping iPad's geolocation capabilities with the kind of precision that can save a lost hiker, navigate treacherous terrain, and aid ordinary navigational needs. It's depth of features and functions should be a benchmark for app developers everywhere. If Columbus had this, he’d be in India.
  • Spyglass is amazing

    By Rodlogic
    We use Spyglass to keep track of where things are and it's amazingly accurate. Used it for years snd would not trade it for the world!
