About this app

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.

CAMERA

Take pictures overlaid with all available GPS, positional and directional data.

Not sure when it happened, but current version does not update GPS location in real time on the screen. You have to stop moving, close App, the re-start App to get updated location.Running on two different android Motorola phones with Android version 6 & 9. Re- installing app didn't help. All other features seem ok. Don't know about altitude mentioned in another review.

Performs some really cool augmented reality features that other apps don't have. I wish they had a way download maps for offline (rather than relying on the cache feature). Some tools are complicated and would benefit from in-app tutorials. There are good directions online though. I think the company could also benefit if they licensed their software to other cool mapping services I use like OnX Hunt. Overall great app and worth the price for the paid version.

I've been using this app professionally (field engineering) for over a year on iPhone, and the functionality is the same on Android. The ability to send/receive GPS locations as KML files is *very* useful, especially when paired with a high accuracy GPS device such as the Bad Elf GNSS Surveyor or Trimble R2. However, there is one issue where the app crashes when attempting to share "destinations" via e-mail. This is on a Samsung Galaxy S7 (Verizon) SM-G930V (hardware Rev. 0.6) with Android 8.0.0, Kernel 3.18.71. Otherwise, I'd give it a 5 star rating.
