This application measures the shortest (air) distance from a point A to a point B using GPS with maximum available accuracy in yards, meters, kilometers and miles. You simply reset the ruler at the point A, and then you watch the distance counters increasing as you move to the point B (as if you were using a real tape measure or a ruler).
Primary use for approximate sizing / measuring of:
- land, grounds, properties
- real estate
- golf course yardage
- sport facilities and tracks
- air distance
- other outdoor measurements
The application is intended for outdoor use only with location services enabled.
How to use: Get to the starting point (A) and press the RESET button to initialize the distance counters. Walk to the target point (B) while watching the distance counters increasing. Point 'A' arrow keeps showing the direction to the starting point (A).
You can close the application anytime during the measurement (by pressing the home button). Once reopened, the application continues the current measurement.
Minor performance and accuracy improvements.
