“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

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Perfectly useful simple app
This app is simple and useful. Save a point then get an arrow and distance to that point. Perfect for hiking, biking, boating. The only thing I would like to see is an update to the watch app so it functions like the iPhone version. A simple pointer and distance on the watch would be helpful when finding a car or for retiring to a point when hosing a jet ski. It’s easy to get lost on one of those! Unfortunately the watch app just gives walking / driving directions same as Apple Maps. Essentially it works the same as using a pin in Apple Maps. Being able to have a pointer and distance would make the watch app so much more useful.
