Mountain Navigator Free

Mountain Navigator Free


Ever stood at the top (or the bottom) of a mountain, stared at the vast vista of wilderness and wondered what the names of the mountains were. With Mountain Navigator, all you do is point your phone at a mountain and it tells you what it’s called. This app doesn’t need an internet connection to work (chances are you won’t have one up a mountain anyway).
Mountain Navigator uses the British Hills Database which contains all the hills and mountains in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Allows you to easily set up filters by distance from your location, height and classification of mountain (Munro, Corbett and Nuttall etc). Includes Marilyns and Humps so the chances are there’s several hills near you, wherever you live.
Mountain Navigator has 4 modes:-

Viewfinder:Hold the phone sideways, point the camera at the mountain you’re interested in and it displays its name. Tap on the name to get all the details of the mountain and navigate towards it.

Toposcope: Hold the phone flat and all the hills are shown as a toposcope. The higher the mountain, the brighter the dot. Tap on a dot to see its name. Tap on the name to get all the details of the mountain and navigate towards it.

Nearby Hills:Shows all the nearby hills. Tap on the name to get all the details of the mountain and navigate towards it.

Search. Search for a specific hill, anywhere in the UK or Ireland.

Plan. Now you can use any location in the UK without actually being there. Allows you to plan in advance of a trip which hills to climb and which maps you'll need.

Uses the British Hills database (version 13.2), contains all Munros, Corbetts, Grahams, Nuttalls, Marilyns, Wainwrights, Birketts, Humps, Arderins, Vandeleur-Lymans, Sims, Furths and County tops.

Ideal for hill walking in The Lake District, the Highlands of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Dartmoor, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales or anywhere that has hills.

Stewart Wilson Useful to find which map to use but not what I thought it would be.

Very useful. I often use this in conjunction with Viewranger and it is spot on. Very useful app. For those with GPS issues Samsung is notoriously poor getting a fix. If you have a rooted phone try "Faster GPS" and change NTP time server default on your phone closer to home! Also in advanced settings Switch on AGPS. You can also calibrate Agps with the "GPS Status Toolbox" app. I also highly recommend "GPS-aids" which will do all of the above. Fix your phone first before assuming this app is the problem. It isnt!

Very useful. I often use this in conjunction with Viewranger and it is spot on. Very useful app. I have a weird problem with it disappearing occsionally. The screen icon goes missing. I check the Applications and the icon is missing. I then check the system application manager, it shows a greyed out android icon listed as "mountain identifier" Weird. I have to uninstall/download/reinstall. Always reinstalls to my external SD card where I originally put it. Have moved it onboard this time to see if it does it again.
