Aircraft Compass Free

Aircraft Compass Free


Aircraft Compass provides magnetic compass and GPS ground-track functionality depicted as an aircraft directional gyro, complete with a functioning heading bug.

It uses your phones internal sensors and global positioning system to present you with an accurate magnetic heading or ground-track.

Features:
- Magnetic heading sourced via internal accelerometer, gyro and magnetometer sensors
- Ground-track sourced via internal GPS
- Functioning heading bug (just drag with your finger!)
- Filtered and smoothed display - no jitter or jumping!
- Support for portrait and landscape screens
- Support for multiple screen resolutions

This is the free version of the app.
It is ad supported and has a two minute time limit per run. Upgrade to the paid version to remove both these limitations.

Usage:
Aircraft Compass is very simple to use. Move the heading bug by touching it and sliding it around. You can switch between magnetic heading and GPS based groundtrack using the menu, as well as changing between portrait and landscape modes
If you like this app, please try my other aircraft/flying related apps!

I'm a professional software engineer, part-time android developer and passionate private pilot so would love to hear your thoughts, feature requests and bug reports.

May be good backup flight instrument Very well crafted! Will try in the air. Can't tell if there is an actual gyro controlling the Artificial Horizon as it will not work properly otherwise with only accelerometer. If you could come up with a multiple instrument app say compass card AND artificial horizon where each app would open for a short time and allow the pilot to stop any one with a tap, that would be some app.

Rotasion detector Not really correct... because it detect the movement. Not magnetical... I turning 180 degree it show only 30 degree. so using ground track more accurate.
