This is only as accurate as your location information and will not take man-made structures into account.When outdoors and with a clear line of sight to the sky, Height Finder will use your device's GPS chip (if available) to obtain a more accurate altitude reading based on your device's exact position.In areas of no network coverage, the GPS chip is the only source of altitude data. If your device does not have a GPS chip, or you do not have clear line of sight to the sky, Height Finder will not be able to calculate your altitude.
