Spyglass App Tips & Tricks

Spyglass Reviews


More accurate than expected  jalmberg  5 star

I was shopping for a handheld compass for my sailboat, and ran across a thread on one of sailing forums that mentioned this app. I was a bit skeptical of an app's accuracy, but the app looked cool enough to try. First thing I did was to check the compass against the compass in my Nikon binoculars. At first I was disappointed, because the reading was about 20 degrees off, but after a bit of fiddling, I realized the app was showing true north, rather than magnetic north. I adjusted the settings to make the app show magnetic, and then the app and my binoculars showed exactly the same setting. Amazing! After that, I started playing around with the other features and reading the manual (a must for such a sophisticated app), and I must say that I am blown away by this little app. I'm an app developer myself, and I am truely impressed with the features and finish of this app. Bravo to the developer(s). Highly recommended.


Does more than the average person can  Light686  5 star

You will be able to navigate in ways you haven't even thought of yet.


Great tool  Uhuhuhohhohhhmhmhmhmm  5 star

Calibration using land marks and sun make this a very accurate tool. One thing is you can no longer zoom close in on satellite map. Previously I was able to zoom in very close to measure and place destinations. Now it's a strain to do this. Will add a star when full sat map zoo is back. iPhone 4 ios6. Updated to 5 star. Everything is working perfectly and seems to be more accurate. iPhone 6


Garmin Buster!!  Bornorgymus  5 star

Over the years I have bought around a dozen Garmins. Yeow! Now Spyglass has sunk that Garmin ship. Garmin support won't answer emails. Too big for their britches I guess. Thank you, Spyglass. Old Alaska bush rat surveyor.


Not accurate  Ddougb  1 star

Compass points about 180 degrees out of where I point the iPhone. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

Ronin Security

Wrong Grid Zone Identifier  Ronin Security  2 star

I really like the app but while using the MGRS to mark waypoint it uses the wrong grid zone identifier. I live and hike in southern Arizona along the Mexican border. The grid zone identifier is 12R but Spyglass displays 12N. This is a significant problem. My Garmin, Motion-X, military issued maps and USGS maps all use 12R. Please fix and I upgrade to 4 Stars. It is a battery hog.


Terrible Instructions  Sisyphus23  1 star

This app is the worst example of poor documentation. The company can not provide simple explanations of the basic uses of this app.


Prankster  JackTDM  5 star

Hahahah I pranked my sister by spying on her! She got sooooo mad! BEST APP EVER!!!



Muy buena aplicación.


Not Very Impressed  Sbrow200  2 star

This app is hard to use, and the camera function doesn't really gain you a lot. Try using a real navigation app like MotionX.


Awesome  used03termi  5 star

It is a really cool app. Tells you how high sea level you are and gives you that airplane dial look.

Great for grunts  Gbrown0341  5 star

I'm an infantryman, and I used spyglass to call in artillery using the 10 digit grid provided. Accurate within 3 meters. I use it to plot and plan routes, known points, and target reference points. It is a must for all Infantrymen.
