Description

PeakVisor is the best [*Mountain Identification*] app for any outdoor adventure. The app identifies all the peak names along with their elevations in your camera view using the Augmented Reality (AR) technology. PeakVisor also has very convenient high-precision [*3D maps*] which are crucial for orienteering in the mountains. The app comes with a number of other handy outdoor features including landscape flyover, photo import, annotated photo sharing, detailed peaks and mountain huts information, and many more - just the kind of multi-purpose gadget that outdoor enthusiasts love. * 3D Maps * A 3D panoramic map presents the true landscape of the mountains. It allows the most convenient way to explore a mountainous area, its trails, summits, passes, viewpoints, and parking areas. A vast​ network of worldwide hiking trails and walking pathways in 3D map allow you to plan your hiking route, its walking distance and elevation gain. * Offline Ready * Internet connection is not a prerequisite for the PeakVisor app. All the data is downloadable and ready for use no matter where you are or what altitude you might be reaching. * Global Reach * PeakVisor covers all the major and minor mountain ranges in the world. Our app is consistently growing to include more peaks and ranges that outdoors enthusiasts are passionate about. * Photo Sharing * Why don’t you let your friends and family in on the amazing adventure you are undertaking? PeakVisor has a photo option that captures the digital overlay of your horizon, completes it with names and altitudes of all the peaks in view. This just adds some zest and the feeling of accomplishment to a trip that is already exhilarating and confidence boosting. * More than just Mountains * PeakVisor knows not only 746.000 mountains but also shows all the castles and mountain huts in your area as well. * 3D Compass and Altimeter * The compass is a helpful tool for outdoor enthusiasts who have not charted a clearly defined route for their hike. 3D terrain model in the compass allows hiking trail routing. The altimeter shows the altitude of the user. * Sun Trail * The Sun Trail reflects the movement of the sun and is super handy in positioning the compass and advising photographers a perfect time for a snap. ==Who is it Designed For?== ^Outdoor Enthusiasts^ - The PeakVisor app is tailored for outdoor enthusiasts and general fans of the outdoor adventures. Anyone planning a hiking trip to a mountain range or nearby will benefit from this app because they can use it to recognize every peak on the horizon. ^Mountain Guides^ - The PeakVisor app is also ideal for mountain guides. Guides who lead groups of people to summits are often asked about the surrounding area during the hike. With the help of the PeakVisor app, they can answer any questions with exactitude and a flash of technological savvy. Using PeakVisor is very simple. Just open the app and point the camera to the mountain in front of you. All the information about the name and height of the mountain in the lens will be displayed in an instant. Head to the Alps, and even the Himalayas, or go to the nearby unknown hills to climb the mountain and exercise fresh air. Let's go now!

    “Just open the app and point the camera.” Sounds easy. I’m in the highest mountain range in the Eastern USA, the Black Mtns in Western North Carolina. I’m 4.01 miles from Mount Mitchell (measured with my Garmin GPS), the HIGHEST PEAK in the Eastern United States, and after nearly a dozen tries, this app has identified NOTHING, although it did indeed download the data it needs for this area. I can clearly see Cattail Peak, one of the southern sixers, from my property. It’s barely a mile away. When I aim the camera at Cattail Peak, the app provides no data whatsoever, even after adjusting and readjusting numerous times, as the user is prompted onscreen to do. After trying over and over, all day long, all I’ve gotten is crude line drawings of mountains. GPS data, yes, but no peak data whatsoever. Nothing. Zilch. Nada. The instructions, which I’ve read, reread and reread, over and over, provide no help whatsoever. Only brief and cursory explanations. Sorry I wasted my money.
  • 3D terrain maps w/trails simply beautiful.

    Much improved since last year when I only used this app for identifying leaks.
  • Great app!

    Mind-bendingly cool app! Feels magical to see the topography of any place you stand on earth outlined and labeled. Adds greatly to my enjoyment of hikes in the Olympic an Cascade mountains. Definitely worth spending the time to get to know the features. Email support was super responsive.
  • Great tool

    This is really a wonderful tool. It’s still evolving so it will only get better. The user interface is not instantly intuitive — for example, the great 3D hiking/terrain maps are displayed by double tapping the compass. Who’d have thunk to try that? But already a great travel companion. I haven’t really used it in the field yet but have high hopes based on test usage so far. I’m optimistic for steady improvement.

    This app is fun, well designed, and educational. I often wonder what the mountains around me in Montana are named when traveling. Now I know.
  • Very slow

    This app is flashing and going nuts! It won't even use the camera properly to view the mountains..... uhhh where's my money back
  • Did not work - just flickered

    I live in Colorado Springs and downloaded the app. It never actually showed any peaks even when I downloaded the regional map. It flickered like a light bulb going bad and over heated my phone
  • Not what I hoped it would be!

    Billed to give topographic information. Does not work for me. Not worth the money!
  • Great and useful app

    I love Peakvisor. I hike in the Adirondacks, and I’m never quite sure which peaks I can see from my location. Peakvisor makes it easy! The developer is very responsive; I asked a question and he replied in a few hours. A great app, and new features are added frequently.
  • Awesome

    Works great! This is a must-have for any mountain enthusiast. Albeit it does not suffice for a quad map or good gps, it does provide great information and pinpoint location of peaks. I am told that next version is in near future with more great functions. Hint to developer: I would like to see glaciers added. Also a function to mark peaks that I have achieved with dates and notes. This would be a great peak-baggers journal!
  • The outdoor AR app you’ve been waiting for!

    Title says it all. Really worth every penny and customer service is even better!
  • Great but missing a few peaks

    By JacksonDE
    I can name all the peaks I live around. Maybe it’s just the locals names for various humps and such. But it would be cool to be able to add a few
  • Need a refund

    It tells me I need to turn on compass calibration. It.is.on. Will not let me get past the screen. It is completely useless.

    I used the app when backpacking in Yosemite Np. It showed names and detail of all the peaks that appear in my real time camera and even some peaks that were behind objects. Of course I had to download offline data of Yosemite region before hand. Overall I think the app deserves 5 stars because It helped me a lot in backcountry
  • Great app

    This app has managed to tackle some really interesting obstacles. In order to get the right information in the right place. This app could easily cost more then it does! It’s a major value add to my life here in Colorado!
  • Fun to use and awesome customer service

    Love knowing the peaks and additional info for where I live and when we camp. I noticed one peak’s height was incorrect, so I emailed the developer and he responded within a couple of hours and fixed it!
  • Would be PERFECT but...

    Love everything about this app except the way it updates. For some reason nearly every time I try to use it, it needs to update the data by downloading the vicinity. Of course this is always exactly when I’m on the trail without data or wireless available. This app beats the competition in about every other way by leaps and bounds so I hope they fix that!
  • Will not open. Crashes repeatedly.

    His concept is very cool. I spend a lot of time in the mountains and love identifying peaks. This will come in handy........if it will ever open. It crashes every time. It appears to be downloading some files to run and hard crashes. I have yet to use the app. I have an iPhone 6+. Would rate higher if it actually worked.
  • So far, so good! (Edited 3/8/18)

    Downloaded the app, open it and the screen constantly flickers. Apple should offer refunds for apps that are junk and purchased from the App Store. If I could give this 0 or negative stars, I would. *updated 3/3/18* I downloaded the latest update and so far the app is working very well.
  • Useless app - no match of app to real mountains

    By Heph.Hugh
    I’m in Les Masses in the Alps and even after downloading over a thousand blocks of data, there is no range I can point at where the labels match the mountains. The artificial horizon is also in the wrong place.
  • Worthless

    I downloaded this to use in the Appalachians. When I opened it to use, it kept saying “composing panoramas”...”6/8...5/8...then 13/8, 12/8...” It just keeps counting and does nothing.
  • Great app

  • Lost River Mountain Range, Idaho

    By Brett208
    This app only has one of the seven Idaho 12ers in the Lost River Mountain Range. App only has Leatherman Peak, and is missing (4) Mount Church, Mount Donaldson, Lost River Mountain Peak, and Mount Breitenbach, all that should be viewable in the landscape from the north side of Mackey Reservoir. Could not tell if Mount Borah or Mount Idaho was visible from this location.
  • All the features I've wanted

    This app has all the features I've wanted where similar ones have lacked in the past.
  • Cool app

    I just moved to Alaska and have no idea what mountains I am seeing on a regular basis so to find an app like this is awesome! I feel more knowledgeable and informed. Thanks! Maybe add more information about the mountains like where trailheads are and stories on them.
  • A small learning curve, then AWESOME photos!

    I am an avid hiker in Maine's Northwoods and I am always wondering what peaks are right in front of me. This app not only shows me, it lets me capture it with the actual mountain view I am seeing and add their name and elevation. When I first started using it, I could not figure out how to get it to line up. First you snap a photo and then you can adjust it horizontally and vertically to line up with your view PERFECTLY. You can also make the mountain ridge lines disappear once you have used them to line up the range. You can add a selfie to the bottom corner. You can click on mountains you want to not be in your photo and you can even favorite mountains!! Check it out!! Totally worth it! Most importantly, where I hike, there is no service. I downloaded my regional area and have NEVER had a problem!
  • Insufficient data

    The AR is cool, but it only shows labels for 1 out of 3 peaks I'm interested in from my location in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I would expect it to be at least as good as my topo map.
