👍🏾a couple of suggestions 🧭🎨

🏔️🗺️ this app is simple but clever. I'm hoping it's going to help me with the drone I'm about to buy. It's just fun otherwise.

I think it needs a compass. This shouldn't be too tough to add. Also the color scheme 🟦🟩 for the elevation is pretty…garish -- maybe you could eventually give some user options.

Almost great, BUT.

Would I buy this app again ... probably. Because it has what may be a distinct feature in it: you point your iPhone in any direction and it shows satellite view of what’s ahead (up to 17k feet with $1.99 upgrade).
BUT it has two missing things to wish for:
= You can’t zoom in close enough to clearly recognize things. There is an intersection about 500 ft from my house and I could not clearly identify it.
= There are no road names so its even harder to identify locations you see in the satellite view. It needs a hybrid view.
If the developer added these two abilities my opinion of the app would go from OK to Great.

My paid for app disappeared

I’m happy to pay for good products
I paid for the upgraded version of this app
The developer literally removed it, changed the name of the version which literally does nothing new now I am required to pay again
Please do not support developers that use this kind of business practice
I would have communicated with customer support directly but as you might imagine there is no means to contact this developer. I don’t blame him for hiding from any response to this scheme.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback. I released a new version for the old Terrain Radar app. With that you get the upgrade for free in the new app. In case you have more trouble feel free to contact me at support@terrainradar.com
