Inclinometer Alternative

I found an awesome app that could serve as a replacement for an inclinometer when you're evaluating avalanche terrain. Has a bunch of other features too.

or put your iphone back into your pocket on, near enough to your beacon to cause interference, get buried and have your buddy not find you and you die, or have your buddy get buried and you dig up a phantom signal from your iphone and he dies because you were playing angry birds in the skin track.

apps have no place in the bc. turn the iphone off and save the battery for a real emergency and use proper equipment for everything else.

you can get a little card from life-link with an inclinometer on it, K2 backside poles have one built in, you can also use any compass.

my bad - you are correct, not sure what i was thinking - not all compasses have one...

... i still think an iphone in the bc is a little ridiculous and if you leave it off like you should the time it takes to get it out and turn it on... i just prefer the analog.

While I am kind of down on BCA these days, their newest inclinometer is top notch. It's much easier to view from all sorts of angles, making measuring a slop much easier. I recommend it.
