I just traveled cross country from LA to Boston and used this app not just to measure altitude but also for location. I wouldn’t have known there were rolling plains above 6000 feet has it not been for this. Accuracy was amazing as I cross referenced signs along the route against the app and found them to be constantly within .5% and for the most part even tighter. It’s as easy as opening the app and watching the altitude change in real time. Highly recommend!
Altimeter is a really great app to have and use especially for traveling across country and it has really come in handy on a trip when you really don’t know what the elevation is and all that you do is to open it on the iPhone and it will tell you the coordinates, name of city and town and the elevation of the place you are in or near. It is a very handy app and it is very easy and simple to use
Used this app in the mountains on vacation to find out how high we were. Corresponded to the signs we saw at the top of each and gave us a better idea when we were up or down the mountain passes. Works without data which is great because in the areas we were driving there is none.
Not only does this app provide you with your elevation above sea level, but most importantly it also indicates your longitude and latitude. If you’re ever lost in the woods or anywhere else and call 911 for help, just give them those numbers. You will be located and rescued immediately.
I struggle with my love of mountains and a lifelong issue with altitude sickness. I use the app to help me ensure that I stay within my ‘safe’ altitudes ( 8500 feet) or take medical precautions Last trip to the Andes ( atacama ) others were ill but didn’t know to associate it with the altitude. Thank you for this tool
We travel the mountain areas of North Carolina and it is extra special to be able to know what altitude we are. Thanks for the opportunity. This is an absolutely great aid if traveling in or through the mountains. Many thanks for this service.
It is always fun to know what your elevation is no matter where you are. I even use this app on an airplane trip when the conditions allow. Can fluctuate a bit but seems to give you a fairly close estimation of how high you are!
Best phone App for immediate decimal GPS values and elevations. But town name feature is misleading. At a car wreck on mountainside, App displayed nearest town but in different county ER personnel dispatched from different town. App would be better if it had option to turn town name off.
I’m a fan of this app! I travel the mountains of WV a lot on my bike and I enjoy checking the elevations. Makes me feel like I’m more in touch with my surroundings. Accurate enough for my needs and functions well. I recommend it!
While this might be good find out about how high you are it's worthless if your try to determine elevation exactly, like how high is each end of your yard, it can show 6-8 foot differences when you have only moved 20 feet and can clearly see it's less than a foot difference.
As we travel, through the country, we don’t always know if we are higher or lower than, whatever. This app provides a pretty good estimate confirmed by available road signs. Haven’t actually tested in aircraft as yet.
This app doesn't give me an accurate altitude while I'm standing still or sitting in car. Numbers constantly going up and down here in flat country of Louisiana. I'm looking for a better and more accurate app.
