Release Notes:Offline route planning just became a lot smarter. In addition to integrating distance and elevation profile, we added trail difficulty grade into the equation.
Recently, we got feedback that estimates were slightly (or, in some cases, not so slightly) off for some of our users when estimating hike times. We are currently implementing the latest technologies in route estimation to address the issue. There are many advanced formulas and tricks to provide better estimates for hike times and we are working hard every day to learn more, but at the end of the day, it all depends on weather conditions and personal skill. Let's face it, some of us tackle difficult hiking conditions much better than others. In this version, we’ve taken the first step towards more precise predictions for accurate route time calculation and there will be many more advancements coming soon. Meanwhile, we greatly appreciate your feedback, especially regarding whether or not the estimates have been helpful for you.
As a small reminder, features such as advanced route planning, are available in the free version as well as the paid version of PeakVisor. You don't need PeakVisor PRO to get all the advantages of planning a hike that PeakVisor has to offer. So please, keep telling us about your hiking experience with the app. We’d love to hear about how effectively the app worked and we love talking about mountains all across the world!
Additionally, there's a new demo location; the summit of Monte Mondeval in the Dolomites - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a place of exceptional beauty in an area where a 7500-year-old Mesolithic hunter was found. You may find more information about The Mondeval Man online. Please, try the new Virtual Demo and let us know which places are your favorite.
As it is summer, many of us will be out of the office temporarily on vacation. However, we are still working hard to bring new amazing improvements to you over the course of the next few weeks. Stay tuned. If you like the app and want to see it improve, please support us by writing a review. It helps our small team a great deal!
