* Offline Augmented Reality in Norway *
See what's near you where you travel in Norway: Mountains, Lakes, Places, Buildings, etc. You don't even have to be nearby Norway: You can manually set your location to a place in Norway to pretend you are there. Decide if you want to see places nearby, or famous cities around the world.
Works everywhere: By the sea, in the mountains, in the city. Without the internet, without coverage.
Turn the phone sideways to view on the camera screen the places that are nearby. Take a picture of what you see, and send it by email, or post it on facebook, directly from the App!
You can also add your own places!
In Sight Norway is also an altimeter, speedometer and also estimates the distance you've traveled. Choose between metric (km, meter) or imperial (miles, feet) units.
All data is built into the App, so you don't need internet. You only need internet when you use the map or send a picture on email or post it on facebook.
Select between the following map types: Standard, Satellite, Hybrid, High Resolution and Sea Map. High resolution maps and sea maps are provided by the Norwegian Mapping Authority.
In Sight Norway relies on the compass and GPS of your device. Best results are achieved if you are outside.
COMPASS CALIBRATION AND ACCURACY.
One way to calibrate the compass is to move the phone in an 8-number manner 3 times: Once when the phone is in landscape, once in portrait and once facing up. Also stay away from magnetic sources that might influence the compass. For the compass to be accurate under usage, you have to be outside to get a good location reading.
