The Spyglass app is one-of-a-kind when it comes to map add-ons. While all modern smartphones come with built-in maps, they're nothing compared to this map app. Built for off-road and outdoor navigation, this app takes all the pieces that a regular tracker or traveller would need and combines it into one cohesive application.

So what do you do when you're stuck in a forest or off-road and your Google maps can't tell you where you are? You turn to the Spyglass app. This app allows users to navigate by the stars and even has an augmented reality simulator to help with travel.

The app is so robust that it even lets you set waypoints to come back to later, regardless of where you are, making things incredibly easy.
