Commander Compass
Description
Commander Compass is an essential offline GPS app for outdoors and off-road navigation. Packed with tools it serves as a hi-tech compass with maps, gyrocompass, GPS receiver, waypoint tracker, speedometer, altimeter, Sun, Moon and star finder, gyro horizon, and coordinate converter. It saves your custom places and waypoints, navigates precisely to them later, shows them on maps, displays detailed GPS info, measures distances, angles, and does a lot more. COMPASS & GYROCOMPASS Accuracy improvement techniques, special compass modes and calibration methods available in Commander Compass only make it a real instrument – the most advanced and accurate digital compass. FINDER, TRACKER & NAVIGATION Commander Compass operates in 3D to show real-time object positions, info and directions to them overlaid over maps or a simple background. Save current position, add points from maps, manually enter location coordinates and bearings, add stars by hand or use a built-in star catalogue. Find saved places and objects later simply by following directional arrows. Commander Compass tracks multiple targets simultaneously and shows their info – distance, direction, azimuth, elevation and estimated time of arrival. Copy, paste and share locations, coordinates and map links using many supported formats. GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER Find and track your location and get detailed real-time GPS data – coordinates in dozens of formats, altitude, course, current, maximum and vertical speed, using imperial, metric, nautical and surveying units. MAPS See your and targets’ positions on maps using different map styles and alternative map providers – plan waypoints and measure distances. NAVIGATE BY STARS Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy.

This app is the tech nerds delight. Almost like aircraft avionics.
Good app, able to use inflight too
by Light 50 on 2017/12/18 19:28
I use this app on flights, all you need to do is window seat. Keep the WiFi ON, with aero plane mode ON. It takes few minutes to lock in to the GPS satellite, and gets map data from the flight WIFI.. worked good on my iPhone 6,.. iPhone 7 has some weak GPS receiver, takes few extra minutes to lock in to gps satellites.
Used for Punkin Chunkin

Awesome app, but...
by sroope on 2015/11/01 20:11
Awesome app once you really start to figure out how to use it. I use it mostly for hunting and it is great for that. But, if you are going to get the paid version get spyglass which is the same app with more functionality like a camera that is cool for pics in the field of features you want to remember and a range finder as well as augmented reality if you need that for anything.

Dumb prompt
by numetheus76 on 2015/05/31 23:41
The prompts that solicit your review are stupid. I bought this app ... and it is my choice whether or not I want to review it. While I was on a jeep trail and needed to get coordinates, I was interrupted by a request to review the app. Why? Prompts were NOT part of the feature list. At least give the option to NEVER ask again if I don't want to review. Since this isn't an option, here is my review. Other than this developer shoving stuff in your face, it's a great app and something I use frequently.
Great Compass
by CreepingLightning on 2015/01/25 02:49
Every aspect of this compass is outstanding. Ease of use. I sometimes set it on my dash and it reminds me of my grandpa's old floating compass in his truck - except with a lot more info. Love the elevation aspect as well. Highly recommended!

by wobbles3285 on 2012/06/14 00:35
The combination of compass and reasonably recent satellite mapping is a great tool for our line of work. Great for coordinating perimeters and getting a quick overhead peep at a location you have to deal with. Also very good for rural work and search and rescue. Very good tool to help make sure you make it home at the end of shift. The only downside is the overlay writing which could better stand out and contrast against the background than it is and makes it a little hard to read sometimes.

Problems with my iPad case
by SAudio on 2012/02/02 04:55
Due to the magnetic closer on my leather case for the iPad, I have to calibrate every time the app is opened. Even then, I MUST take my iPad out of the case for anything to be close. This isn't really their fault as the iPad is just too sensitive to ANYTHING being close to it. I've opted to use this app ONLY on my iPhone.
Grandiosa

Excelente App para quien le gusta salir de la rutina. Ampliamente Recomendable
I needed this at Stead AFB
by OneMoreAttempt on 2011/12/09 01:14
This is even better than the "Lensatic" compass they had us navigate with during the survival training at Stead AFB. If you added a couple of "clip on" sights it would approach perfection as a navigation instrument. Of course, the iPad is too large to fit in any pocket of a flight suit so you couldn't have it with you after bailing out of your plane.

Commander Compass 3.3.6--get Spyglass instead!
by alwaysmprest on 2011/11/22 19:34
Pretty app, and seems to be stable on a 4S, but I'm giving it only 3 stars for the cheezy rip-off marketing: Better to get Spyglass by the same developer, unless you're stuck as a fighter pilot wanabee. Although CC's screen shots look like your looking through the camera, You're Not (it's pretend night vision green). Spyglass is exactly the same, except more features and more practical: it works like a theodolite, a sighting compass with elevation and GPS coordinates included, and you can take a picture of it. (Wanted features of Spyglass, bought Commander Compass by mistake, then bought Spyglass, which is essentially a major upgrade to CC, for the same price. CC should be the 99 cent lite version.) There's also Theodolite, similar but different, by another developer.

Beautiful interface and seemingly lots of features. Unfortunately I have no clue how to use this tool. It is hardly intuitive.

I don't so it was a waste of money for me.

It's a five star product but is the same price as Spyglass which contains more features. The only difference I see between this and the free version is the ability to change the display colors. Save your money and buy Spyglass instead.

....now if I could only remove the "standard" compass from my 3GS which is now just wasting prime menu space. I've also dumped all of the "Find Your Car" apps I've tried because they are chicken feed compared to this. This app was also very useful when I was away traveling to mark locations not easily described by street addresses (for my conventional car GPS). Apps like these are what makes the 3GS so much more than just a phone.

Clever plug to solicit a review...
by igoswoop on 2011/06/29 16:13
App is great in function for why I purchased it but suggesting I need to include a review so that updates continue is a little sketchy. I expect necessary updates and product support for my purchase whether the product generates the desired margin of profit or not. I'm a customer already and I don't appreciate being asked for my endorsement for free in a screen built into the app.

Truly Mi favourite app. All of those that rate this lower than Five Stars: Operator Error! Thanks!
This app is awesome, works flawlessly...

And I would hate to do that cause i love the app. Want to give this update 0 stars but i won't let me.
Great Compass
by CreepingLightning on 2015/01/25 02:49
Every aspect of this compass is outstanding. Ease of use. I sometimes set it on my dash and it reminds me of my grandpa's old floating compass in his truck - except with a lot more info. Love the elevation aspect as well. Highly recommended!
Nice, But Hard To Use
by free market maniac on 2011/10/13 12:07
Beautiful interface and seemingly lots of features. Unfortunately I have no clue how to use this tool. It is hardly intuitive. The associated manual explains nothing other than what the features are --not how to use them. uyer beware, this app ASSUMES you know how to use a military style compass already. I don't so it was a waste of money for me.
Fabulous map app
by nvchicky on 2013/04/07 23:10
However still keep a paper map because if you don't have a signal not even compass can help!!
Nice compass
by Ajablu on 2010/03/24 21:13
Would like to be able to load maps over 3G. When location services is turned off eaco of the compass quadrants is labeled 0 to 45 degrees instead of having the entire compass go from 0 to 360.

Barely functional
by Wish I could get money back on 2010/11/13 23:09
Does not hold azimuth bounces around. When asked to name a coordinate will not pull up keyboard. When I came to app store to review it offered me the lite version which I mistook as an upgrade even though I have the full version, and I bought it. Tired of getting burned by crap apps. But hey at least the lite version will give me a keyboard.
Seems promising!
by media maniac on 2015/10/20 21:29
Nice interface, still figuring out all the settings. Looks like it has a bit of a learning curve to utilize all the features.

Buy Spyglass Instead
by cubatron on 2011/08/21 16:40
It's a five star product but is the same price as Spyglass which contains more features. The only difference I see between this and the free version is the ability to change the display colors. Save your money and buy Spyglass instead.
Good program
by Rmflyer4 on 2012/04/06 20:56
Great package excep it takes forever to adjust to true north. If it wasn't for that I would have given the fifth star

Please use a shorter name
by iamthat1guy on 2011/06/09 05:20
I know it may seem petty, but abbreviated icon names are a pet peeve. Because the icon name "Commander Compass" is too long, on the home screen, it is automatically abbreviated as "Comma...pass," which looks sloppy. Please use a shorter icon name, at which time I can give the app a higher rating.

Commander Compass
Description
Commander Compass is an essential offline GPS app for outdoors and off-road navigation. Packed with tools it serves as a hi-tech compass with maps, gyrocompass, GPS receiver, waypoint tracker, speedometer, altimeter, Sun, Moon and star finder, gyro horizon, and coordinate converter. It saves your custom places and waypoints, navigates precisely to them later, shows them on maps, displays detailed GPS info, measures distances, angles, and does a lot more. COMPASS & GYROCOMPASS Accuracy improvement techniques, special compass modes and calibration methods available in Commander Compass only make it a real instrument – the most advanced and accurate digital compass. FINDER, TRACKER & NAVIGATION Commander Compass operates in 3D to show real-time object positions, info and directions to them overlaid over maps or a simple background. Save current position, add points from maps, manually enter location coordinates and bearings, add stars by hand or use a built-in star catalogue. Find saved places and objects later simply by following directional arrows. Commander Compass tracks multiple targets simultaneously and shows their info – distance, direction, azimuth, elevation and estimated time of arrival. Copy, paste and share locations, coordinates and map links using many supported formats. GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER Find and track your location and get detailed real-time GPS data – coordinates in dozens of formats, altitude, course, current, maximum and vertical speed, using imperial, metric, nautical and surveying units. MAPS See your and targets’ positions on maps using different map styles and alternative map providers – plan waypoints and measure distances. NAVIGATE BY STARS Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy.

This app is the tech nerds delight. Almost like aircraft avionics.
Good app, able to use inflight too
by Light 50 on 2017/12/18 19:28
I use this app on flights, all you need to do is window seat. Keep the WiFi ON, with aero plane mode ON. It takes few minutes to lock in to the GPS satellite, and gets map data from the flight WIFI.. worked good on my iPhone 6,.. iPhone 7 has some weak GPS receiver, takes few extra minutes to lock in to gps satellites.

by sroope on 2015/11/01 20:11
Awesome app once you really start to figure out how to use it. I use it mostly for hunting and it is great for that. But, if you are going to get the paid version get spyglass which is the same app with more functionality like a camera that is cool for pics in the field of features you want to remember and a range finder as well as augmented reality if you need that for anything.

Dumb prompt
by numetheus76 on 2015/05/31 23:41
The prompts that solicit your review are stupid. I bought this app ... and it is my choice whether or not I want to review it. While I was on a jeep trail and needed to get coordinates, I was interrupted by a request to review the app. Why? Prompts were NOT part of the feature list. At least give the option to NEVER ask again if I don't want to review. Since this isn't an option, here is my review. Other than this developer shoving stuff in your face, it's a great app and something I use frequently.

The combination of compass and reasonably recent satellite mapping is a great tool for our line of work. Great for coordinating perimeters and getting a quick overhead peep at a location you have to deal with. Also very good for rural work and search and rescue. Very good tool to help make sure you make it home at the end of shift. The only downside is the overlay writing which could better stand out and contrast against the background than it is and makes it a little hard to read sometimes.

This is even better than the "Lensatic" compass they had us navigate with during the survival training at Stead AFB. If you added a couple of "clip on" sights it would approach perfection as a navigation instrument. Of course, the iPad is too large to fit in any pocket of a flight suit so you couldn't have it with you after bailing out of your plane.

Commander Compass 3.3.6--get Spyglass instead!
by alwaysmprest on 2011/11/22 19:34
Pretty app, and seems to be stable on a 4S, but I'm giving it only 3 stars for the cheezy rip-off marketing: Better to get Spyglass by the same developer, unless you're stuck as a fighter pilot wanabee. Although CC's screen shots look like your looking through the camera, You're Not (it's pretend night vision green). Spyglass is exactly the same, except more features and more practical: it works like a theodolite, a sighting compass with elevation and GPS coordinates included, and you can take a picture of it. (Wanted features of Spyglass, bought Commander Compass by mistake, then bought Spyglass, which is essentially a major upgrade to CC, for the same price. CC should be the 99 cent lite version.) There's also Theodolite, similar but different, by another developer.

I keep using this app all the time....it's also very entertaining, I love looking at the compass as we drive. And I love the color of it. Deborah Anne

The compass goes well beyond giving direction...and speed...and altitude...and gps long/lat. It ids celestial bodies and...well I'm still finding other cool new things to do with it.

Buy Spyglass Instead
by cubatron on 2011/08/21 16:40
It's a five star product but is the same price as Spyglass which contains more features. The only difference I see between this and the free version is the ability to change the display colors. Save your money and buy Spyglass instead.
Great Tool
by PaulCor2011 on 2011/08/21 04:54
I spend a lot of time outdoors and this has proven to be an invaluable tool for all occasions.
Good app, able to use inflight too
by Light 50 on 2017/12/18 19:28
I use this app on flights, all you need to do is window seat. Keep the WiFi ON, with aero plane mode ON. It takes few minutes to lock in to the GPS satellite, and gets map data from the flight WIFI.. worked good on my iPhone 6,.. iPhone 7 has some weak GPS receiver, takes few extra minutes to lock in to gps satellites.
👍👍👍👍

Thank you for this beautiful program when the program is updated because the old maps I live in Iraq is very old and landmarks I hope you reply
The best compass
by beagleman2009 on 2017/09/07 06:42
The best compass on AppStore period accurate beautiful design your hard work shows thanks for the update don't think about it get it I have both.
Used for Punkin Chunkin
by Steven Daniel Pierce on 2017/09/16 18:07
Team American Chunker used this app during testing. Works great. A foot or two difference between two phones. Thanks.
Awesome compass
by Dx power on 2017/09/08 17:35
The options and detail of this app are amazing!!! Highly recommend for outdoorsman and professionals alike!
Techno nerds untie!
by LDRoadie on 2019/09/19 00:16
This app is the tech nerds delight. Almost like aircraft avionics.
Iraq
by Omar Mohammad Mahdi Aljboury on 2017/09/07 09:36
Hello. I love this program, but in fact need to add Arabic language and updates of maps map of Iraq is not exclusively entertained and updated as soon as possible Thanks
This is a no BS top-notch compass and navigation device!!
by ZenFAUST on 2010/08/07 21:20
....now if I could only remove the "standard" compass from my 3GS which is now just wasting prime menu space. I've also dumped all of the "Find Your Car" apps I've tried because they are chicken feed compared to this. This app was also very useful when I was away traveling to mark locations not easily described by street addresses (for my conventional car GPS). Apps like these are what makes the 3GS so much more than just a phone.
Commander Compass 3.3.6--get Spyglass instead!
by alwaysmprest on 2011/11/22 19:34
Pretty app, and seems to be stable on a 4S, but I'm giving it only 3 stars for the cheezy rip-off marketing: Better to get Spyglass by the same developer, unless you're stuck as a fighter pilot wanabee. Although CC's screen shots look like your looking through the camera, You're Not (it's pretend night vision green). Spyglass is exactly the same, except more features and more practical: it works like a theodolite, a sighting compass with elevation and GPS coordinates included, and you can take a picture of it. (Wanted features of Spyglass, bought Commander Compass by mistake, then bought Spyglass, which is essentially a major upgrade to CC, for the same price. CC should be the 99 cent lite version.) There's also Theodolite, similar but different, by another developer.
Commander.......
by Cookie. (Deborah) on 2011/11/02 02:56
This app is absolutely fantasfabulous!!! I just drove from Phoenix/Globe area, a 6-7 hour drive, starting off at 9.30 pm and got to Albuquerque at about 4 am, with stops. I had this app on, next to me and it was totally rad, looking at the range finder and looking at how it showed to road and tne details. Just fantastic!! I keep using this app all the time....it's also very entertaining, I love looking at the compass as we drive. And I love the color of it. Deborah Anne
Awesome app, but...
by sroope on 2015/11/01 20:11
Awesome app once you really start to figure out how to use it. I use it mostly for hunting and it is great for that. But, if you are going to get the paid version get spyglass which is the same app with more functionality like a camera that is cool for pics in the field of features you want to remember and a range finder as well as augmented reality if you need that for anything.
Good L.E.tool.
by wobbles3285 on 2012/06/14 00:35
The combination of compass and reasonably recent satellite mapping is a great tool for our line of work. Great for coordinating perimeters and getting a quick overhead peep at a location you have to deal with. Also very good for rural work and search and rescue. Very good tool to help make sure you make it home at the end of shift. The only downside is the overlay writing which could better stand out and contrast against the background than it is and makes it a little hard to read sometimes.
Clever plug to solicit a review...
by igoswoop on 2011/06/29 16:13
App is great in function for why I purchased it but suggesting I need to include a review so that updates continue is a little sketchy. I expect necessary updates and product support for my purchase whether the product generates the desired margin of profit or not. I'm a customer already and I don't appreciate being asked for my endorsement for free in a screen built into the app.
I needed this at Stead AFB
by OneMoreAttempt on 2011/12/09 01:14
This is even better than the "Lensatic" compass they had us navigate with during the survival training at Stead AFB. If you added a couple of "clip on" sights it would approach perfection as a navigation instrument. Of course, the iPad is too large to fit in any pocket of a flight suit so you couldn't have it with you after bailing out of your plane.
Milspec GPS!!! Running iPhone 4
by NÅST IX on 2010/09/19 07:05
I have the overlay set clear with red lettering; looks Fantastic. I really appreciate the GPS tracker and the zooming function. This app has made MiPhone a part of Mi. While exploring on Mi motorcycle I have it fixed to Mi wrist, so I can get a glimpse of all possible back roads. Truly Mi favourite app. All of those that rate this lower than Five Stars: Operator Error! Thanks!
This app is awesome, works flawlessly...
by gregors on 2010/09/26 14:25
Downloaded it on location to mark location and altitude for a neighborhood park, then used it to track all the all the way home. Worked beautifully. Perhaps on the iPad, the numbers at the corners could be a bit bigger though.
Clear Direction
by Ben's Dad Scott on 2011/10/02 20:28
The compass goes well beyond giving direction...and speed...and altitude...and gps long/lat. It ids celestial bodies and...well I'm still finding other cool new things to do with it. If Magellan had this app he could've fired his crew. All of this for free! This is a huge gift to mankind. Thanks for putting a really great app!
Excellent!
by bluereys on 2011/10/07 22:59
For a few bucks, serves as a great back-up GPS just in case. I like that you can still use the GPS function (you won't be able to download maps obviously) even when not in cell phone range.
Dumb prompt
by numetheus76 on 2015/05/31 23:41
The prompts that solicit your review are stupid. I bought this app ... and it is my choice whether or not I want to review it. While I was on a jeep trail and needed to get coordinates, I was interrupted by a request to review the app. Why? Prompts were NOT part of the feature list. At least give the option to NEVER ask again if I don't want to review. Since this isn't an option, here is my review. Other than this developer shoving stuff in your face, it's a great app and something I use frequently.

by Wauwinet on 2012/11/30 03:31
This is a fabulous app. The paid version gives you screen adjustment flexibility which I consider worth it, but the free version has all the same basic information.
Will not work on iphone 4
by Warrior ethos on 2014/04/10 08:25
First off i used this app alot. But with new update will not work on iphone 4 which is BS. Tried on three differant phones would not work on any of them kept having to restart phone after opening the app. Absolutly dissappionted with new update, if no update in month to fix problem will delete app for good. And I would hate to do that cause i love the app. Want to give this update 0 stars but i won't let me.
Great Compass
by CreepingLightning on 2015/01/25 02:49
Every aspect of this compass is outstanding. Ease of use. I sometimes set it on my dash and it reminds me of my grandpa's old floating compass in his truck - except with a lot more info. Love the elevation aspect as well. Highly recommended!
Nice, But Hard To Use
by free market maniac on 2011/10/13 12:07
Beautiful interface and seemingly lots of features. Unfortunately I have no clue how to use this tool. It is hardly intuitive. The associated manual explains nothing other than what the features are --not how to use them. uyer beware, this app ASSUMES you know how to use a military style compass already. I don't so it was a waste of money for me.
Fabulous map app
by nvchicky on 2013/04/07 23:10
However still keep a paper map because if you don't have a signal not even compass can help!!
Nice compass
by Ajablu on 2010/03/24 21:13
Would like to be able to load maps over 3G. When location services is turned off eaco of the compass quadrants is labeled 0 to 45 degrees instead of having the entire compass go from 0 to 360.
Buy Compass Commander
by 1SG E on 2011/11/06 12:19
Great product. I use it in my military job and for hunting and find it both extremely useful and accurate.
Great for directions
by Soninjachoo on 2012/05/12 18:54
This app makes it so easy to explain to people where things are. Love the satellite view feature with street names and your location and destination(s) clearly marked
Pilot @ heart
by Tonytor on 2012/09/13 09:59
Excellent! Would benefit from having more info downloaded to smartphone so we can follow the trip when no internet access is availabe.

One should never rely solely on a gps device to navigate the wilderness. However this is a good little app if you calibrate and pay attention.
Problems with my iPad case
by SAudio on 2012/02/02 04:55
Due to the magnetic closer on my leather case for the iPad, I have to calibrate every time the app is opened. Even then, I MUST take my iPad out of the case for anything to be close. This isn't really their fault as the iPad is just too sensitive to ANYTHING being close to it. I've opted to use this app ONLY on my iPhone.
Tch...
by edwardjchou on 2010/03/19 21:55
Stop trying to get more money devs...raising everything by 1 dollar; now I'm not going to buy spyglass which I had been considering to.
Excellently executed app.
by decontheroad on 2012/11/25 18:31
For anyone who is interested, for whatever reason, in maps, topography, orienteering, land/sea/air navigation, etc. this app delivers.
Works
by reverseflash on 2011/07/14 15:55
Use this app for work it is extremely useful could not be productive with out it !
Barely functional
by Wish I could get money back on 2010/11/13 23:09
Does not hold azimuth bounces around. When asked to name a coordinate will not pull up keyboard. When I came to app store to review it offered me the lite version which I mistook as an upgrade even though I have the full version, and I bought it. Tired of getting burned by crap apps. But hey at least the lite version will give me a keyboard.
Seems promising!
by media maniac on 2015/10/20 21:29
Nice interface, still figuring out all the settings. Looks like it has a bit of a learning curve to utilize all the features.
Tch...
by edwardjchou on 2010/03/21 05:27
I dont get it though, why is this the same price as spyglass if spyglass can do the same things and more?
Great compass
by Poop Collector on 2010/03/25 06:57
So much better than the regular compass, just wish it had a nicer icon. Still 5 stars
100x
by Fiddlebill on 2013/11/25 18:39
You can mark out boundaries of your property. This tool saved me more money than it cost X who knows. Great tool!

by Sjohn317 on 2011/06/06 16:21
Using it to set up private geocache course for summer camp using iPhones. Let u know how it works in a couple of weeks.
Sweeeeet App!!!
by Tigerbeetle on 2012/03/20 06:22
This digital compass is very accurate and easy to use; I really like the detail and the data display!
A really cool app.
by mikw73 on 2010/07/23 11:45
This is the best advantage I've seen taken of the iPhone accelerometer and gps. Very, very cool. And really useful, once in a while.

by Meher,Shiva on 2011/04/29 16:33
I like this very much. Well done. 5 stars for first presentation. Good to see coming updates.
Great compass 2 use!
by Djagamer7 on 2013/11/25 15:27
This is very awesome! I have enjoyed spending time with it and I hope it never leaves me!
Great Tool.
by Wazonu on 2013/03/27 21:02
I always discover short cuts & I never get lost. I'm so glad I found this app!
Love this app! Works great :)
by theRealThrill on 2011/07/19 01:50
This app looks really good and works great! I like the snapshot feature that saves a screenshot to your photos.

Good program
by Rmflyer4 on 2012/04/06 20:56
Great package excep it takes forever to adjust to true north. If it wasn't for that I would have given the fifth star
Nice!
by US AF Pilot on 2013/12/30 01:12
Feature reach and makes good use of many iPhone's sensors.
Please use a shorter name
by iamthat1guy on 2011/06/09 05:20
I know it may seem petty, but abbreviated icon names are a pet peeve. Because the icon name "Commander Compass" is too long, on the home screen, it is automatically abbreviated as "Comma...pass," which looks sloppy. Please use a shorter icon name, at which time I can give the app a higher rating.
