3D Gyro Compass

3D Gyro Compass


Combines accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope sensor data with state-of-the-art AHRS algorithm to create fast, accurate and stable tilt-compensated compass that simply needs to be experienced with own eyes.

The app utilizes Rightware's leading Kanzi framework for smooth rendering with HW accelerated 3D graphics. There are two different themes to choose from: traditional style "Adventure" and modern "Marine".

As a bonus, Marine mode contains a damped string suspension with modeled physics for rough conditions. No matter how you move the device, the compass ball just seems to be magically floating in the air.

Download and share freely. If you're interested, the sensor fusion algorithm is open source and available under LGPL license (contact us for more information).

You are welcome to ask questions, discuss and read news about our other apps at http://finweaiapps.blogspot.fi

Notice:
- The algorithm requires all three movement sensors. Some fairly modern devices in the market do not include gyroscope (for example, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1).
- Marine mode ball compass is supposed to be viewed from side, not from top. Directions seem opposite if viewed from top.

Stay tuned for other amazing apps from Finwe Ltd.

the best most accurate compass I have found on the market sofar, my magnetic sensors are inaccurate and unreliable for a compass but this app stabilizes my compass in all directions

Simple and works out perfectly. Just could be a little more appealing.

Tilt compensation doesn't work On my Nexus 10 it only shows the corrected direction when my tablet is flat on the table.
