Download European Hiking Compass Now


This is the app for everyone who likes hiking in Europe. Whether it's the Alps, the Carpathian Mountains, the Pyrenees or somewhere else. The app will show you name and distance (and sometimes altitude) for the most important hill and mountain tops in the terrain around you.

When your device is flat you see a compass with arrows pointing towards the tops, and when it's held upright you see an augmented reality camera view. In camera view you can take photos, and the names of the tops and other places will be printed on the picture. The app can also display a map, where tops whitin a radius of approximately 60 km are marked. Swipe over the screen to swap between compass and map.

You can choose if you want arrows/markers for all available hills and mountains, or if you prefer mountains only. You can also choose to see other terrain formations like valleys and capes, waters and lakes, or other names like populated places.

The app uses offline data, which means that it will also work without an Internet connection. But there are a few exceptions: You need Internet connection if you want to download new maps. These will be temporary stored on your device, and consequently work partly offline later. You also need Internet connection the first time you are starting the app, so it can do a piracy check. A new check on this will be done at least every third month.


Want to test before your buy? Check out the free app "Norwegian Cities and Villages":
It show different (Norwegian) data, but work in a similar way as the Euro Hiking Compass (you can use a fake GPS app to pretend you are in Norway).
