Commander Compass Go
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.

Not user friendly
by Kkcomical on 2019/01/08 01:14
Hard to find tutorials in the free version. Difficult to navigate the window icons, what they are supposed to do. I have trouble setting destinations. All in all not a user friendly app for novice.
constantly demanding for money
by alföldi on 2018/12/27 20:11
This app will not even start until it demands payment for the upgrade-- and then goes to the app store so you can pay. A disgusting predatory bunch
Cool, but....
by dbasmb on 2018/12/17 01:22
There’s a lot of stuff in this app. However, I can not get past verifying the compass reading. It must be that my hardware is sending the wrong data to the app because the reading are 30 degrees off. I have checked location services and verified it is calibrating. The app shows that it is not Calibrated but no amount of twisting helps. Would like a suggestion on what to do from the developer.
Compass is nearly 160 degrees off!

Top-notch Navigational Tool

Very rarely do I rate 5 stars. This app has earned it! This is from a Soldier of 22+ years, and I wish I had this kind of app technology many years ago. Great job guys. Highly recommended.
App is way wrong
by '60Viking on 2018/08/03 18:07

by jkirk1626 on 2018/02/02 17:18
This is a powerful app with a whole book dedicated to its capabilities. Trying to use this app to save a position then guide you back is not reliable. It will often point you in a direction that is inaccurate by 180°. Recommend, but beware of its inaccuracy if you're relying on it for more than curiosity and amusement. iPhone X

by Scbastve on 2017/11/14 15:33
It does way more than I know what to do with. I use it for deer hunting to find spots I’ve tagged deep in the woods. These spots are not easy to find without this app as the terrain changes from year to year due to clear cutting. This app always gets me where I need to go. I highly recommend.
needs an easier delete button
by The Regent on 2017/11/12 16:44
I’m still looking for a delete or remove function to get rid of points or locations I don’t need anymore. Having to sift thru useless points to find important ones can take time, so an easy Remove/Delete Waypoint/Location feature would be highly beneficial.

North is North it shouldn't say S when pointing North. True North should be North not an option.

by Marc b l on 2016/09/18 19:24
My phone had a full charge before going to bed. There were no open apps on my phone as I always check. When I woke up. My battery was completely drained. After charging for a few minutes this app was open on my phone. The only explanation for this is spyware and someone got into my phone through this app. I immediately deleted this app... Beware!!!
what an app!
by Rochester native on 2016/08/22 23:11
Much more than I expected; superb precision, and many excellent extras. Leaves the other App Store compasses FAR back in the dust!!!!
Excited to use
by Chodeee on 2016/06/27 14:26
Great app! Looking forward to being able to save coordinates of cool destinations then tracking them back down using the compass. I also like all the info it provides on one main screen so it's not a complicated ordeal to find out what you want to know

Super App

by BillK12321 on 2015/10/26 02:11
We used commander compass on a recent photo trip to locate photo sites recommended by other persons who provided GPS coordinates. Great results accurate to several meters. The direction arrow and distance display were very useful. Questions about app behavior were promptly answered - great tech support. A very well thought out application. Whenever they have another special sale price, we will upgrade and get more of Pavel Ahafonau's applications.
Please Fix
by WolfSif on 2015/10/17 12:48
This is an app that shows great promise and is very useful, I enjoy the design as well. However it does not seem to be/remain accurate when I ping waypoints! It will show (when I ping my current location) as being, for example, 34 feet away. If it is a defect in the app, I would like it fixed, If there is a way to calibrate it I would like to be informed.
Great app for locating yourself
by Steel_Rabbit on 2015/10/08 04:35
Tons of information and fairly easy to use once you spend some time with it. Bit of a learning curve as there are so many options but worth it. Large drain on battery and can have trouble on slower connections. Would be great to have presets for car, hiking, running, and such to simplify setup for new comers. Definitely worth learning.
Great App to calibrate my iPad
by Alok Bhargava on 2015/09/30 04:22
As Apple doesn't add any Compass application, I was wondering how to calibrate my iPad. I downloaded this app and was using it and suddenly noticed calibration dial. Rotated the dial to get it calibrated. I don't think it will show calibration dial if your iPad doesn't need calibration.
App has problems now

Boy Scout in your phone
by drinkKavaKava on 2015/09/19 16:52
Very decent free no nag app. Only negative I seen is that it's function and navigation all rests on how you configure the compass when you first open app, so be careful to be standing on solid ground and rotate it with care and as precise as you can, the more mechanical you are in that stage which lasts maybe 20-30 seconds, the more accurate app performs... Other gripe is that you have to do every time you open app
Highly Recommended

This is one of those free lunches your father told you don't exist. Outstanding free app. Not crippled, non-intrusive promotion of developer's paid apps. Beautiful design. What more could you want? Makes your iPhone into a full featured stand-alone GPS receiver. Love it!

Complex Compass & GPS
by SilverSurfer166 on 2015/01/23 14:06
This compass goes far and above the dinky Compass App that comes on iPhones, which is what I was used to. It'll show you lots of things. Like your compass bearing (of course), your GPS coordinates, Satellite images of your current location, your Altitude, and lots more. Did I mention it's Free? Great Job!

Suspicious
by Bill Andersoot on 2015/01/07 14:45
The first time I opened this app, it presented me with a dialogue box pre-filled with the term "bifidobacterium longum". "Odd," I thought--until I realized it was a term I had recently searched for in Safari. If you're wondering why this app drains your battery, I think I may have stumbled upon the reason.

Amazing Battery Hog!
by CD Wyte on 2014/12/23 01:32
Location services are always on. This app used more than 12 percent of my battery charge in the 14 hours after I installed it (8 hours were on my nightstand as I slept.) I have many apps that require location, but ONLY DURING use of the app. None are hogs. The iPhone compass also uses location ONLY while in use.

International space station location
by Jimmy Bucks on 2011/10/18 09:38
I have been trying to see satalites with my family and could never realy know where to look. I bought the app hoping I could understand how to use a compass. I went on line and input the information that I found so we would know where to look at the correct time. There were terms I did not know so I wikied it to get a better understanding to know what the numbers meant . I looked like a hero in my little boys eyes. with this app I told my family where to look and at the time I told them there was the space station going over our location on a clear night it worked perfect. I set it up and as I scanned the area the compass told me exactly by name that I imported where to be. All the info I needed was in this program. Without it it's a crap shoot and you only have a second to a min to look in the right spot .Its A Big Sky.
Amazing on the Ipad2!
by The Nickster 483736 on 2011/07/13 06:07
Wow!! I'm used to navigating on a sailboat using a real compass for bearing but this app is just incredible on my IPAD2. Takes full advantage of the digital compass and gyroscope features found in the IPAD2, would also be beneficial to pilots I think with the horizon line feature. Best of all you don't have to hold your IPad flat! Showing the realtime position of the Sun, Moon and Polaris is VERY helpful in verifying the accuracy of the unit too. The satellite view of your current position is also a really great feature. A bargain at $2 but being currently free makes installing this a no-brainer on an IPAD2. MUCH THANKS to the developer, this is an EXCELLENT app!!!
Great app, but one thing
by conman526 on 2013/06/09 18:19
I love this app, and it's all I've ever needed for sailing. But, it doesn't work when you lay it down with the back of the phone on a table. It freaks out, and the angle doesn't work. I mostly use he angle on this, but it only works up and down (phone is vertical) and doesn't work when ou lay down the line (phone is horizontal). I really want it to work with the phone horizontal. If it should, I would like to know how it does, as I can't get it to. Thanks! I would give 5 stars except for that.
Commanders compass
by braucs_daddy on 2012/01/25 06:23
I'm a little generous with five stars but it's more than four. Sometimes north has a tendency to bounce around a bit. It does function well but if you use the compass to find north I suggest turning classic compass on and gyrocompass off as this was the only way I got it to function properly. You should make this the default setting because I can't imagine anyone wanting to view a backwards compass because upon download that's how it's set up.
Really useful app
by BillK12321 on 2015/10/26 02:11
We used commander compass on a recent photo trip to locate photo sites recommended by other persons who provided GPS coordinates. Great results accurate to several meters. The direction arrow and distance display were very useful. Questions about app behavior were promptly answered - great tech support. A very well thought out application. Whenever they have another special sale price, we will upgrade and get more of Pavel Ahafonau's applications.
What a compass!
by Appledoggy on 2012/06/26 22:57
I've tried many compass apps, and this one truly stands out. It has more features than I can yet understand, and the display is beautiful and map overlay is so useful. Even if you don't need many of the options, this compass can truly help you get wherever you are going. It knows where you are, and if you set another location(s), it points to that as well! It's a really useful tool, not just a toy app.
Boy Scout in your phone
by drinkKavaKava on 2015/09/19 16:52
Very decent free no nag app. Only negative I seen is that it's function and navigation all rests on how you configure the compass when you first open app, so be careful to be standing on solid ground and rotate it with care and as precise as you can, the more mechanical you are in that stage which lasts maybe 20-30 seconds, the more accurate app performs... Other gripe is that you have to do every time you open app
Great app for locating yourself
by Steel_Rabbit on 2015/10/08 04:35
Tons of information and fairly easy to use once you spend some time with it. Bit of a learning curve as there are so many options but worth it. Large drain on battery and can have trouble on slower connections. Would be great to have presets for car, hiking, running, and such to simplify setup for new comers. Definitely worth learning.

by Just Rowdy on 2012/01/31 13:09
I had been searching for a free compass App and downloaded several. Now, to be honest, I have not devoted enough time to learn how to get the most from each one. However having said that let me also say that I have enjoyed this compass App more than the others. It has plenty of nice features but you need to take the time to learn them......I like it and intend on devoting some time to learning how to get the most from it. Try it
Best compass I have ever owned
by Tank plyr on 2012/05/28 05:14
Great for mariners!!! For those that have not figured out how to use this I'll tell u. It is the same instruments u have in a plane. Point the camera of ur phone in the direction u want information on. Don't lay ur phone flat on a table!!! Sun moon Polaris are great reference points and built in. You can store multiple locations using google maps or other gps mapping.
Worth more
by PTDS Nomad on 2012/03/03 00:25
The Lite version was free, so I tried it. I have only been 'playing' with it for a day now, but I am so impressed I bought the other 2 versions. I would have paid the $3.99 each. I look forward to seeing what they have to offer. I pulled up a map of the area of Afghanistan that I am currently at and it is better than the military map I have!!!
Best compass app I've ever seen-better than iPhone 4's
by Nudgefudge on 2011/06/20 19:19
This compass is indescribably cool. The look is awesome, it shows your speed in car mode, you can line it up with stars, and you can google earth your location with the compass on top. It's way more modern than that of the iPhone 3; if you have a 4th generation iPod touch like me, this completes it; get it and throw it into your utilities folder.
Deer hunting
by Pigvalve on 2012/11/19 04:49
I loaded this app on the way to the big woods to hunt. The compass worked fine and when I get home I will check the web site for more info. It wasn't as accurate as my Garmin but I could see where it might be more handy. It does do a healthy draw on the battery which might not be so hot if you needed it off and on the entire day. It is more than just a compass though. Maybe four stars if the Webb does a better job of explaining how to use.
Great app
by The 25th fret on 2013/09/13 02:36
I use this app a lot. My most recent save by the app was when I was fishing with a friend in my boat and the river was extremely foggy. We couldn't see anything. I opened the app and saw that we were heading straight for the bank. This app showed me where I was and which way I was pointing so I could steer us away from the bank back out into the river and got us safely to our fishing spot. Very happy with it.
Extremely useful app!
by Asmsage on 2012/09/14 00:20
I use this for orienting antenna installations in my work(it connects with google map as well) and it also has many usefull and educational features. One I discovered by accident which is a sky tracking feature for doing star gazing it will tell you where the planets are and any sky element, ie stars, galaxies, nebulas it is incredible !
North frequently WRONG!
by raspberryrisa on 2011/08/31 08:31
This app looks so cool until you use it a couple of times. North is aligned pointing at the top of the iTouch at the time of launch the majority of the time regardless of the actual direction is really North. The map location is always off in spite of being manually corrected every time. I read through the instruction manual but none of the display changes described as happening in response to different screen swipes occurred. I was very excited about this app, and unfortunately have been very disappointed.
Strong app, but not perfect
by jsbraun on 2012/01/29 01:18
After 2 weeks, the app seems pretty strong and has proven accurate, and has become my goto compass app. But some of the added features and expanded capabilities seem less effective or unneeded. Maybe with more practice I'll become more proficient, but initial take is they don't work as desired. Still beets the other compass apps and has replaced the others I downloaded.

Not user friendly
by Kkcomical on 2019/01/08 01:14
Hard to find tutorials in the free version. Difficult to navigate the window icons, what they are supposed to do. I have trouble setting destinations. All in all not a user friendly app for novice.
constantly demanding for money
by alföldi on 2018/12/27 20:11
This app will not even start until it demands payment for the upgrade-- and then goes to the app store so you can pay. A disgusting predatory bunch
Cool, but....
by dbasmb on 2018/12/17 01:22
There’s a lot of stuff in this app. However, I can not get past verifying the compass reading. It must be that my hardware is sending the wrong data to the app because the reading are 30 degrees off. I have checked location services and verified it is calibrating. The app shows that it is not Calibrated but no amount of twisting helps. Would like a suggestion on what to do from the developer.

We use the compass to lay out haying machine passed and elevation to determine drainage of water on crops. App works great, handy when ever we need it from the iPhone.

Top-notch Navigational Tool
by Skippy6413 on 2018/08/08 02:56
Very rarely do I rate 5 stars. This app has earned it! This is from a Soldier of 22+ years, and I wish I had this kind of app technology many years ago. Great job guys. Highly recommended.
App is way wrong
by '60Viking on 2018/08/03 18:07
Using this in Honolulu at sunrise, lat & long. is correct but the app, when one aligns the compass to N shows sun coming up from the West! Compass app that comes with the iPhone is correct. Guess which I’ll be using?

Responsive developer
by jkirk1626 on 2018/02/02 17:18
This is a powerful app with a whole book dedicated to its capabilities. Trying to use this app to save a position then guide you back is not reliable. It will often point you in a direction that is inaccurate by 180°. Recommend, but beware of its inaccuracy if you're relying on it for more than curiosity and amusement. iPhone X

by Scbastve on 2017/11/14 15:33
It does way more than I know what to do with. I use it for deer hunting to find spots I’ve tagged deep in the woods. These spots are not easy to find without this app as the terrain changes from year to year due to clear cutting. This app always gets me where I need to go. I highly recommend.
needs an easier delete button
by The Regent on 2017/11/12 16:44
I’m still looking for a delete or remove function to get rid of points or locations I don’t need anymore. Having to sift thru useless points to find important ones can take time, so an easy Remove/Delete Waypoint/Location feature would be highly beneficial.

This is an app that shows great promise and is very useful, I enjoy the design as well. However it does not seem to be/remain accurate when I ping waypoints! It will show (when I ping my current location) as being, for example, 34 feet away. If it is a defect in the app, I would like it fixed, If there is a way to calibrate it I would like to be informed.

As Apple doesn't add any Compass application, I was wondering how to calibrate my iPad. I downloaded this app and was using it and suddenly noticed calibration dial. Rotated the dial to get it calibrated. I don't think it will show calibration dial if your iPad doesn't need calibration.

Like your compass bearing (of course), your GPS coordinates, Satellite images of your current location, your Altitude, and lots more. Did I mention it's Free? Great Job!

WRONG!
by Codeman 76 on 2015/01/08 19:40
Why is this rated so highly? It thinks wherever I point my phone is north, even after I calibrated.
Suspicious
by Bill Andersoot on 2015/01/07 14:45
The first time I opened this app, it presented me with a dialogue box pre-filled with the term "bifidobacterium longum". "Odd," I thought--until I realized it was a term I had recently searched for in Safari. If you're wondering why this app drains your battery, I think I may have stumbled upon the reason.

We are using it for geocaching! The longitude and latitude alter slightly after putting them in but it hasn't caused issue with our hunts.
Amazing Battery Hog!
by CD Wyte on 2014/12/23 01:32
Location services are always on. This app used more than 12 percent of my battery charge in the 14 hours after I installed it (8 hours were on my nightstand as I slept.) I have many apps that require location, but ONLY DURING use of the app. None are hogs. The iPhone compass also uses location ONLY while in use.

Responsive developer
by jkirk1626 on 2018/02/02 17:18
This is a powerful app with a whole book dedicated to its capabilities. Trying to use this app to save a position then guide you back is not reliable. It will often point you in a direction that is inaccurate by 180°. Recommend, but beware of its inaccuracy if you're relying on it for more than curiosity and amusement. iPhone X
needs an easier delete button
by The Regent on 2017/11/12 16:44
I’m still looking for a delete or remove function to get rid of points or locations I don’t need anymore. Having to sift thru useless points to find important ones can take time, so an easy Remove/Delete Waypoint/Location feature would be highly beneficial.
Cool, but....
by dbasmb on 2018/12/17 01:22
There’s a lot of stuff in this app. However, I can not get past verifying the compass reading. It must be that my hardware is sending the wrong data to the app because the reading are 30 degrees off. I have checked location services and verified it is calibrating. The app shows that it is not Calibrated but no amount of twisting helps. Would like a suggestion on what to do from the developer.
Great App
by Scbastve on 2017/11/14 15:33
It does way more than I know what to do with. I use it for deer hunting to find spots I’ve tagged deep in the woods. These spots are not easy to find without this app as the terrain changes from year to year due to clear cutting. This app always gets me where I need to go. I highly recommend.

Looks Pretty, But Can't Find North Or South

Simply does not work.

After a few years of playing with this, the compass still cannot find anywhere close to North. It points all over the 360 degrees.

App is way wrong
by '60Viking on 2018/08/03 18:07
Using this in Honolulu at sunrise, lat & long. is correct but the app, when one aligns the compass to N shows sun coming up from the West! Compass app that comes with the iPhone is correct. Guess which I’ll be using?

International space station location
by Jimmy Bucks on 2011/10/18 09:38
I have been trying to see satalites with my family and could never realy know where to look. I bought the app hoping I could understand how to use a compass. I went on line and input the information that I found so we would know where to look at the correct time. There were terms I did not know so I wikied it to get a better understanding to know what the numbers meant . I looked like a hero in my little boys eyes. with this app I told my family where to look and at the time I told them there was the space station going over our location on a clear night it worked perfect. I set it up and as I scanned the area the compass told me exactly by name that I imported where to be. All the info I needed was in this program. Without it it's a crap shoot and you only have a second to a min to look in the right spot .Its A Big Sky.
Amazing on the Ipad2!
by The Nickster 483736 on 2011/07/13 06:07
Wow!! I'm used to navigating on a sailboat using a real compass for bearing but this app is just incredible on my IPAD2. Takes full advantage of the digital compass and gyroscope features found in the IPAD2, would also be beneficial to pilots I think with the horizon line feature. Best of all you don't have to hold your IPad flat! Showing the realtime position of the Sun, Moon and Polaris is VERY helpful in verifying the accuracy of the unit too. The satellite view of your current position is also a really great feature. A bargain at $2 but being currently free makes installing this a no-brainer on an IPAD2. MUCH THANKS to the developer, this is an EXCELLENT app!!!
Great app, but one thing
by conman526 on 2013/06/09 18:19
I love this app, and it's all I've ever needed for sailing. But, it doesn't work when you lay it down with the back of the phone on a table. It freaks out, and the angle doesn't work. I mostly use he angle on this, but it only works up and down (phone is vertical) and doesn't work when ou lay down the line (phone is horizontal). I really want it to work with the phone horizontal. If it should, I would like to know how it does, as I can't get it to. Thanks! I would give 5 stars except for that.
Commanders compass
by braucs_daddy on 2012/01/25 06:23
I'm a little generous with five stars but it's more than four. Sometimes north has a tendency to bounce around a bit. It does function well but if you use the compass to find north I suggest turning classic compass on and gyrocompass off as this was the only way I got it to function properly. You should make this the default setting because I can't imagine anyone wanting to view a backwards compass because upon download that's how it's set up.
Really useful app
by BillK12321 on 2015/10/26 02:11
We used commander compass on a recent photo trip to locate photo sites recommended by other persons who provided GPS coordinates. Great results accurate to several meters. The direction arrow and distance display were very useful. Questions about app behavior were promptly answered - great tech support. A very well thought out application. Whenever they have another special sale price, we will upgrade and get more of Pavel Ahafonau's applications.
What a compass!
by Appledoggy on 2012/06/26 22:57
I've tried many compass apps, and this one truly stands out. It has more features than I can yet understand, and the display is beautiful and map overlay is so useful. Even if you don't need many of the options, this compass can truly help you get wherever you are going. It knows where you are, and if you set another location(s), it points to that as well! It's a really useful tool, not just a toy app.
Boy Scout in your phone
by drinkKavaKava on 2015/09/19 16:52
Very decent free no nag app. Only negative I seen is that it's function and navigation all rests on how you configure the compass when you first open app, so be careful to be standing on solid ground and rotate it with care and as precise as you can, the more mechanical you are in that stage which lasts maybe 20-30 seconds, the more accurate app performs... Other gripe is that you have to do every time you open app
Great app for locating yourself
by Steel_Rabbit on 2015/10/08 04:35
Tons of information and fairly easy to use once you spend some time with it. Bit of a learning curve as there are so many options but worth it. Large drain on battery and can have trouble on slower connections. Would be great to have presets for car, hiking, running, and such to simplify setup for new comers. Definitely worth learning.
NEAT
by Just Rowdy on 2012/01/31 13:09
I had been searching for a free compass App and downloaded several. Now, to be honest, I have not devoted enough time to learn how to get the most from each one. However having said that let me also say that I have enjoyed this compass App more than the others. It has plenty of nice features but you need to take the time to learn them......I like it and intend on devoting some time to learning how to get the most from it. Try it
Best compass I have ever owned
by Tank plyr on 2012/05/28 05:14
Great for mariners!!! For those that have not figured out how to use this I'll tell u. It is the same instruments u have in a plane. Point the camera of ur phone in the direction u want information on. Don't lay ur phone flat on a table!!! Sun moon Polaris are great reference points and built in. You can store multiple locations using google maps or other gps mapping.
Worth more
by PTDS Nomad on 2012/03/03 00:25
The Lite version was free, so I tried it. I have only been 'playing' with it for a day now, but I am so impressed I bought the other 2 versions. I would have paid the $3.99 each. I look forward to seeing what they have to offer. I pulled up a map of the area of Afghanistan that I am currently at and it is better than the military map I have!!!
Best compass app I've ever seen-better than iPhone 4's
by Nudgefudge on 2011/06/20 19:19
This compass is indescribably cool. The look is awesome, it shows your speed in car mode, you can line it up with stars, and you can google earth your location with the compass on top. It's way more modern than that of the iPhone 3; if you have a 4th generation iPod touch like me, this completes it; get it and throw it into your utilities folder.
Deer hunting
by Pigvalve on 2012/11/19 04:49
I loaded this app on the way to the big woods to hunt. The compass worked fine and when I get home I will check the web site for more info. It wasn't as accurate as my Garmin but I could see where it might be more handy. It does do a healthy draw on the battery which might not be so hot if you needed it off and on the entire day. It is more than just a compass though. Maybe four stars if the Webb does a better job of explaining how to use.
Great app
by The 25th fret on 2013/09/13 02:36
I use this app a lot. My most recent save by the app was when I was fishing with a friend in my boat and the river was extremely foggy. We couldn't see anything. I opened the app and saw that we were heading straight for the bank. This app showed me where I was and which way I was pointing so I could steer us away from the bank back out into the river and got us safely to our fishing spot. Very happy with it.
Extremely useful app!
by Asmsage on 2012/09/14 00:20
I use this for orienting antenna installations in my work(it connects with google map as well) and it also has many usefull and educational features. One I discovered by accident which is a sky tracking feature for doing star gazing it will tell you where the planets are and any sky element, ie stars, galaxies, nebulas it is incredible !
North frequently WRONG!
by raspberryrisa on 2011/08/31 08:31
This app looks so cool until you use it a couple of times. North is aligned pointing at the top of the iTouch at the time of launch the majority of the time regardless of the actual direction is really North. The map location is always off in spite of being manually corrected every time. I read through the instruction manual but none of the display changes described as happening in response to different screen swipes occurred. I was very excited about this app, and unfortunately have been very disappointed.
Strong app, but not perfect
by jsbraun on 2012/01/29 01:18
After 2 weeks, the app seems pretty strong and has proven accurate, and has become my goto compass app. But some of the added features and expanded capabilities seem less effective or unneeded. Maybe with more practice I'll become more proficient, but initial take is they don't work as desired. Still beets the other compass apps and has replaced the others I downloaded.
