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. Offline maps optimized for retina displays are available for download.
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.

Elite Quality App
This is one of those rare apps that you come across every so often that truly demonstrates the power of what an application on a smart phone can do. I personally have only come across a handful of apps that are what I consider "elite".
This App works flawlessly. The design is very slick and minimal which I equate to quality. I could honestly see this application being something that you would see on a screen in the cockpit of a jet aircraft. After using this app for only a short time, it becomes obvious that the creator of this app has the Swift/Objective-C programming language mastered. I honestly wish that the author of this app would create a Celeste you'll start tracking app as I know it would be five stars as well. By this up with confidence if you are looking for a top-tier application that turns your smart phone into a precision measuring instrument.
One compass to rule them All
This is a powerful app without crass commercial distractions. It is a powerful navigational tool. Valuable to hikers, hunters, rock hounders, cyclists, automobile GPS, boaters, and any others who wish to use the most comprehensive compass based navigational tool for iOS.
Built in accurate calibration with celestial objects, moon, sun, and Polaris (viewed thru your device's camera) is in addition to the GPS compass toolset that other navigational apps use.
Great map overlays, satellite maps, and ability to share locations to other spyglass users. You can also share to users of tomtom , wayze, google maps, and other GPS and maps systems.
As long as you have battery life, you will never be lost with this app.
There is a learning curve. If you can read and comprehend on a 20th Century 7th grade level, then you can learn how to use Spyglass. Great videos and comprehensive manual. Use them to get the most out of the app.
I rarely leave reviews, but this app deserves its props and unabashed accolades. Bravo to the Spyglass team.
Top quality, the definitive compass and navigational tool. Buy it and be done in this genre of apps.
As apps do more and more, and become increasingly complex, it’s essential to have some sort of user guide if you’re to use all the capabilities. Spyglass does, and has done so for years. I appreciate that.
In addition, the Spyglass developers keep the app up to date, and add *real* improvements periodically, not just pretty pictures that take up space but don’t improve functionality. I appreciate that as well.
There’s a small but steep learning curve to use this app. But you’ll quickly see what it’s all about, and you’ll start nodding your head and smiling, as I did when I first used it.
