Cool app. Not for navigation.

3
If an app claims to be designed for navigation, it is vital that it uses consistent and accurate names for trails, glaciers, peaks, etc. Peak Visor does not do that. This makes it a very dangerous tool for the backcountry. In the USA, many mountains were re-named by white settlers. Those names are generally the official government names. Sometimes the names are reverted (for example, McKinley back to Denali), but most mountains still have their government names. If you are interested in navigation in the mountains, it is vital that you carry a paper map with you. In much of the western USA, most of the the best physical maps (like Green Trails or USGS Topo maps) use the official government name. Peak Visor has selected a few mountains to give a name given by an indigenous peoples. Which group of people? That seems to be random and insulting. Many mountains and peaks are named different things by different tribes. Let’s take a popular mountain: Mt Saint Helens. Some native peoples refer to it as Loowit. In fact there is a traditional story about three cascade volcanoes, Loowit, Pahto (Mt Adams), and Wy’East (Mount Hood). Wikipedia’s alternate name is Louwala-Clough. PeakVisor has seemingly randomly decided to label it Lawet’lat’la (the Klickitat name) and ignore the Cowlitz and Yakama people’s names. Mt Adams is Pahto, and not Klickitat. Meanwhile, Mount Hood is still Mount Hood, even though at all of those names, if you went around the urban areas around these mountains asking people about Lawet’lat’la, Pahto, and Wy’East, the one that the people would know is that Wy’East is Mount Hood. (And even that is not a majority). Similarly Mount Rainier is well-known at Tahoma or Tahkoma, but PeakVisor ignores that, too. Because of the number of peaks and lava domes and ridges on a single mountain, having a name, even if it’s the summit, that doesn’t match the name on a paper map is a HUGE deal, and when it lacks consistency, that’s even worse. This app is awesome for learning about mountains, and for general range exploration, it is a great app. Want to take a photo and figure out what you are looking at? In all but two or three cases, awesome. However, it is absolutely dangerous and reckless to refer to itself as a navigation app.

This is sketchy

1
Ive just started and it asked for location access this is suspicious, because no apps or games ask for location, plus why do you need to know my location.

App is good but maps downloader needs a LOT of work

2
On even the fastest connection downloading maps takes so long it basically is a useless feature. Either their maps/tile server has severely underprovisioned networks or there is a rate limiting bug. 10-15k/s at most for 1Gb+ is never gonna work. All other apps download at full speed, so it’s not my connection! This may seem like a small detail but the app is useless in the backcountry without offline maps!

We found the mountain

We were at an observation tower and saw a mountain and wanted to know which one it was. The app helped us find it in like 5 mins and it was free and pretty easy to figure out. We found Sugarloaf Mountain.

We have tried using this while hiking and it never shows any of the mountains we know that exist in our area. It mis marks all the peaks we point it toward. We are in Wester Massachusetts.

😡charged day *before* cancel date

1
If you’re going to check out a “free trial”, beware that they will auto-charge you even if you do cancel *before* your next subscription period is clearly scheduled to begin.
By Yowzoe

completely inaccurate

1
while using this, the app would change its mind about which peaks were which without me even moving the phone at all. when i did move the phone, it would tell me the same peaks regardless of whether i was looking east or west. maybe it couldn’t identify peaks because there were clouds behind them, or maybe it is just bad at WNC (I see someone else had issues around Mt Mitchell). Glad i didn’t pay for this lol

Obtrusive Upgrade Banner

The ever-present upgrade to pro is so obtrusive that it makes the app almost unusable.
