PeakVisor is the best app for any mountain outdoor adventure. It labels all the mountain and peak names along with their elevations in your camera view. PeakVisor comes with a number of handy features including annotated photo sharing, mountain huts information, and many more - just the kind of multi-purpose gadget that outdoor enthusiasts love. Mountains have a mysterious aura that one must feel and see to believe. The jutting peaks and majestic valleys of a range like the Great Canadian Rockies or the European Alps are a visual treat that is beyond compare. Hiking up a mountain is a physical challenge that outdoor enthusiasts across the world love to take up. Trekking across the world to discover new ridges brings about an unrivaled rush of excitement. What’s the one thing missing? A tool that can inform the hikers of their surrounding environment as they make the ascent to the summit. That used to be the case until the PeakVisor app came onto the market! The PeakVisor app has made it possible to discover the names and altitudes of all the glorious peaks in the world via your phone. With PeakVisor all you need to do is open the app and point it towards the mountain peaks in your viewing area - and voila: you get the name and altitude of all the ridges. It is informative no matter where you happen to find yourself, whether it is halfway up a mountain or lounging in a chalet at the summit. What are the Features? The PeakVisor app is ultimately user-friendly. There are no complicated setup requirements or technical specifications that must be followed in order to benefit from the knowledge it provides. All the user has to do is select the mountain range they are going to be hiking, and PeakVisor will take it from there. Some of the features include: * 3D Mountain Panorama * The 3D Mountain Panorama will overlay a 3D terrain model onto the objects in the camera view. This digital overlay will facilitate better recognition of any mountain, it will adjust the panorama should you wish to locate and name all the mountains in sight. * 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. 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. Please get in touch with us at [email protected]…
Last week we started rolling out improvements that smoothly move the app into the so-called "Grand Release". It is based on our early tests and feels like the promising future of navigation and orienteering. Follow us in order to be the first to experience this grand future!
*!* This week we continue bringing most important updates. Shortly after getting this update, you will be able to recognize water bodies on your camera screen. Mountain lakes are the source of endless inspiration for postcard-quality photos, alpine serenity, and chill-out from the Sun heat. Now, PeakVisor will render all the lakes in such a way that you won't miss even a tiny pond.
*!* Also, we made our Virtual Reality compass even better: we have improved colour scheme and water bodies rendering. Please, let me skip the boring part about the bugs found and fixed...
*!* Finally, you could test all these updates on two completely new demo locations in the Alps. The first one is Monte Nuvolone above the legendary Lake Como (say Hi to celebrities owning villas here, visit James Bond and Star Wars shooting locations, and our HeadQuarters. Everything is here!). The second demo is near Lake Checrouit (Courmayeur) and it features one of the best views on the highest mountain in the Alps - Mont Blanc / Monte Bianco. Do you like these places? Would you like to see more?
That's it for now, but there's much more coming soon. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, get out and have some fun! 😉
