Elevation Pro is an altitude tool built specifically for iOS. Unlike any other application, it is able to provide elevation data on the iPad, iPhones (2G and higher) and even iPod Touch devices. It provides two ways to get your current elevation.
The first method uses the iPhone’s GPS signal to determine your current elevation above sea level.*
The second method uses the current location reported by the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch (using GPS, cell tower, and/or WiFi access point triangulation via SkyHook**) to query the United States Geological Survey’s massive worldwide elevation data source.
By providing both data sources, you will have two ways to reference your current elevation. If you do not have GPS or your signal is unavailable, you will still have the USGS mapping data source as a way to view your elevation. In addition, our experience shows that the USGS elevation data is quite accurate, and more consistent than GPS or other means of elevation measurement.
Elevation Pro v2.x now provides a world map where you can now tap almost any habitable place on earth to obtain its elevation. Now you can look up your favorite city to see what elevations exist.
