Connect to every mountain in the Canadian Rockies -all 1560 of them.
With this app, you'll always know the name of that mountain you're looking at and why it has that name.
Here's how it works:
-If you're on the highway, hiking, sitting on top of a peak, or relaxing on the deck of your home with a mountain view, you'll see your GPS position on your choice of a standard or satellite image map. Icons for all 1560 peaks are overlaid on the map.
-Tap on the icon to find out the name of the peak you're looking at, its elevation, the distance to it, and its bearing. As well, the naming history of the mountain is displayed.
-If you're interested in a particular peak, there's an index with the names of all 1560 peaks in the Rockies. Tap on the one you're interested in and you'll see where it's located with respect to your location. You'll also see the distance to the peak and its bearing.
-If you have a cellular connection or wifi available, tap on an icon to link directly to the peak's page on www.peakfinder.com, where you'll find detailed information and photos of the mountain.
*Remember ... GPS functionality does not require a cellular connection.
