PeakVisor 2.0.4 blends Augmented and Virtual Reality

New 3D Map

We have been very quiet over the recent weeks, the whole month actually. But that was for the grand reason. We can't wait for you to see all the mind-blowing stuff coming into your phones with the recent improvements. It is totally a giant leap towards PeakVisor 3.0!

Yet, before we go further into the new version details please let us remind you how beautiful the autumn scenery is. We spend almost every weekend possible outdoors clicking the shutters trying to catch a perfect reflection of golden trees in tranquil high altitude lakes. This autumn has already brought some surprises. We have already had a lot of snow up here. It looks like the puffy snow hits the mountain trails earlier than usual, making them even more enchanting and treacherous at the same time.

Back to grand things we are excited to share with you:

  • There's a huge virtual world of mountains coming to you. Now you can enjoy a bird’s view on your current location in the 3D world. High-detail landscape model will let you immediately understand where you are and what all the things around you are. Take a look at our new compass. It might be the best mountain map you have ever seen: in true 3D!
  • PeakVisor consumes less battery. The algorithms became so efficient that they overcome current state-of-the-art software even for desktop applications. Yet, everything is available in your pocket and it doesn't drain battery. It is a perfect excuse for much longer treks and more pictures of Nature beauty during your adventures!
  • Vertical adjustments in the main AR screen. Many of you have asked to let you perfectly match panorama vertically. So, we agreed, now you can :-)

Our small team reads and replies every single mail we get. We are so happy to hear your feedback and improve the app based on your thoughts and wishes. One of the most recent requests we got was from fairy tale Scotland. The Munros and Furths are the mountains with a height of over 914 m / 3 000 ft. They are named after Sir Hugh Munro, the 4th Baronet (1856–1919), who produced the first list of such hills, known as Munro's Tables, in 1891. "Furth" or "Furth Munro" is exactly the same but furth (i.e. "outside") of Scotland. If it were located in mainland Scotland, it would be classified as a Munro. Highlanders have a good sense of humour, huh?

Enough reading, it is time to go out and have some fun!
