iOS Universal Navigation
Spyglass is an essential GPS toolkit for outdoors and off-road navigation. Packed with tools it serves as binoculars, heads-up display, hi-tech compass with 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.
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.
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.
Take pictures overlaid with all available GPS, positional and directional data.
DEMO & HELP
○ offline OSM maps optimized for high-resolution displays
· download the entire low-res world map for high zoom levels
· download selected map regions for all zoom levels
○ improved recognition of coordinates
· recognition of non-standard minute (′) and second (″) symbols
· recognition of Geo Caching coordinates with a minute sign omitted
○ stability and compatibility improvements
In the app settings, you can now select a retina-optimized map source “OSM @ Happymagenta”. Once you select it the “Download” button will become active. Then you will be able to download maps for offline use.
Improved recognition of coordinate input allows you now to copy and paste, or type in coordinates in a more convenient way. Non-standard symbols that can be used to indicate minutes and seconds of a degree will now be properly interpreted.
Additionally, you can now copy and paste, or type in coordinates with minute and second symbols omitted when the degree symbol is present:
N 37° 41.501 W 97° 20.282 will be recognized as N 37° 41.501' W 97° 20.282'
N 37° 41 30.06 W 97° 20 16.92 will be recognized as N 37° 41' 30.06" W 97° 20' 16.92"
