This altimeter delivers the altitude of your current position either from the device (GPS) or from the ASTER digital elevation model (with a horizontal accuracy of 30m).
Depending on your current position and your device one of the two methods is more correct. Using GPS on the device is known for a large error in the altitude for difficult receiver conditions it's not available for network based positioning at all.
Therefore this altimeter works on iPods and iPhones without a GPS sensor.
- switch between metric and feet units
- set an optional target altitude
- switch between Device, ASTER and combined altitude
- support for the iPhone 6 and 6+
- support for the iPad multitasking (split view..)
What's New in Version 1.4.1
- bug fixed
It should be called elevation
Altitude refers to the height above mean sea level regardless of elevation of the land. The symbol of the altimeter falsely implies it uses barometric pressure as well as gps for aircraft altitude. But, it only tells you the elevation of the ground.
Am giving it 2 stars because it does do a good job at elevation but only two stars because it does not give altitude.
