FoxHunt™ for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S

An app for Direction Finding / Search and Rescue

Pinpointing the location of a target — one you can see or one you can identify by radio signal — using map, compass, and ruler is a tedious and error-prone process. FoxHunt brings the power of iPhone to this task and makes locating targets easier.

Spot the target, point your iPhone at it, and tap the on-screen button. Your position and heading are recorded. Move to another location and repeat. Two bearings on the target let FoxHunt plot the probable location of your target clearly on a map. Adding more bearings allows FoxHunt to pinpoint your target more accurately. Once the target has been mapped, driving directions are just a tap away on your iPhone.

FoxHunt was designed specifically to support amateur radio direction finding. Add your favorite receiver and antenna to your kit, and off you go. But FoxHunt can also be used in other applications where bearings to the target are available by other means, including visual spotting of landmarks.
