Terrain Radar Altimeter - App Review

With this altimeter app you can analyze the terrain around you. Discover the height of the hill in front of you or take a look at further away mountains.

Point your Smartphone into any direction and instantly obtain a detailed elevation chart.

The altitudes are calculated through online services, based on your GPS position and compass direction.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The App starts up with an horizon in the top half of the screen and an Google Maps aerial view of your location in the bottom two thirds of the screen, as well as your current altitude.

There are + and - signs which enable you to set the distance at which you are scanning from 100 metres to 5 kilometres.

Point your device in the direction you want to scan and a silhouette appears with the altitudes (read off an axis to the left) at the varying distances.

The button allows you to choose between imperial and metric measurements.

The App Costs a nominal $1.

The App is useful for determining elevation of geographical elements up to 5 kilometres (3 miles away). It works regardless of the weather (a definite advantage).

The App seems accurate but iwould be even more useful with terrain further away being evaluated.

The App needs access to your location in order to function properly.

The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front.

ACIDS Test Rating:
