Very dissapointing... GPS takes years, the peaks are not even close to correct

Gute Idee, schlecht umgesetzt. Ich kann den Namen der Berge nicht lesen, weil sie umherhüpfen. Taste zum Einfrieren fehlt. Es werden kleine Hügel angezeigt, aber grosse Berge in der Nähe nicht.

Traveling in the mountains. This is a nice layer style app for finding out how high the peaks around you are and what their names are.

Good, but needs extended range Shows the peaks in my neighbourhood, even when it sometimes seems to be a little "off". What is missing is an even bigger range: e.g. on some days I can clearly see a mountain peak, that's about 40km away from me - but I can't seem to show it in the app.

Great idea and useful execution. Wish that the unit settings worked for the peaks and not just the range function. Just a few tweaks away from awesome.

??? I'm looking directly at Mt Rainier and Mt Baker and it wont identify either one! I think you need a tutorial for this app. I found the dial off to the right by accident to fine tune the peak finder.
