Ever stood at the top (or the bottom) of a mountain, stared at the vast vista of wilderness and wondered what the names of the mountains were. With Mountain Navigator, all you do is point your phone at a mountain and it tells you what it’s called. This app doesn’t need an internet connection to work (chances are you won’t have one up a mountain anyway).
Mountain Navigator uses the British Hills Database which contains all the hills and mountains in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Allows you to easily set up filters by distance from your location, height and classification of mountain (Munro, Corbett and Nuttall etc). Includes Marilyns and Humps so the chances are there’s several hills near you, wherever you live.
Mountain Navigator has 3 modes:-
Viewfinder:Hold the phone sideways, point the camera at the mountain you’re interested in and it displays its name. Tap on the name to get all the details of the mountain and navigate towards it.
Toposcope: Hold the phone flat and all the hills are shown as a toposcope. The higher the mountain, the brighter the dot. Tap on a dot to see its name. Tap on the name to get all the details of the mountain and navigate towards it.
Nearby Hills:Shows all the nearby hills. Tap on the name to get all the details of the mountain and navigate towards it.
Uses the British Hills database, contains all Munros, Corbetts, Grahams, Nuttalls, Marilyns, Wainwrights, Birketts, Humps and County tops.
Ideal for hill walking in The Lake District, the Highlands of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales or anywhere that has hills.
