User Feedbacks

“I used it while hiking on the river bluffs today and tested it. It worked great. Took me right back to my car and even showed how far away in it was.” — by Bjverano

“Unbelievably Easy and Accurate!!! Finally a GPS that does have all the clutter that a normal GPS would have. For off-road driving and hiking it's a MUST!!!” — by Jimbo6765

“Having recently spent a weekend hiking in the Peak District I found myself using this app constantly to help with orienteering. The app lends itself to so many different uses (the Park facility being just one of them). Recommended!” — by S N Khan

* Park Car only works in open parking lots due to GPS restrictions.

Editors’ Notes

Wherever life takes us, we’ll find our way back with Anchor Pointer. It’s the compass reinvented with walking directions, navigational bookmarks, and a simple parked-car locator—all in a friendly design. We save time and stress by sharing our whereabouts with friends and syncing saved locations across devices. For treks through nature or across town, Anchor Pointer fits like a good pair of shoes.

Very well designed

Its design is not cluttered and is very easy to grasp. I will definitely continue to use this app whenever I need to find a location again or find a parked car. It’s much easier to just open this app and make an anchor than to go through the process of dropping a pin in Google or Apple maps. I always find it very tedious and hard to name and manage pins in those apps, but here it’s really simple and with the added features of the anchor list + being able to use different icons for different locations I’m able to pull up a location really quickly.

Needs work

I was looking for a better app to pin my car and I also wanted an app that pins various locations. I thought I found it here, but it has some flaws.

I sat in a location and dropped an anchor. I went back to the app later and checked the anchor and it said I was 24 yards from the anchor. I never moved from the spot I dropped it! Also, if you want to get back to your car, it isn't as accurate as it should be. The latitude and longitude pin should always be exactly the same if you drop an anchor or mark your car. For some reason it will take you to the approximate location, but not exactly.

It would be a great app if it could be more consistent and accurate. Please improve it so it can be much more reliable.

Update: It looks like it was fixed. I will try it again on the car marking, but it seems like it’s better! Thanks for the fix!!!!
