About 3D Map
3D Map displays Maps in 3D and in augmented reality.
Useful on trails or for outdoors activities.
Totally compatible with *off-line* mode : you can go and explore backcountry without to worry.
All downloaded data, are available when your are off-line !
3D Map has been designed to allow simple terrain navigation.
GPS positioning and sensors make it possible to locate in 3D space.
Coupled with a rendering engine, the map displays in 3D. Mountains are not flat terrain any more !
In Augmented reality mode, you'll see the map moving in 1st person view.
Make a 360° around and you will see the map turning with you.
The map follows what you are looking !

- Performances & Autonomy :
3D Map has been designed and optimized for 3D mode.
The application takes advantage of available CPU core and also GPU.
Multiple cores will do the job faster and will consume less battery.
From a storage point of view, the difference with a 2D map is marginal.
Once data has been downloaded (by WIFI for best performance), the application is as fast as a video game.
A trade-of had been made to guaranty a good fidelity to performance ratio that should allows a day of use.
Tested on 6+ hours trails in Glacier National Park.
