* Take and record bearings in the field.
* Fast and stable.

!!! CAUTION
For best results:
* calibrate the magnetic sensors every time you use the application: move your device along a "8" shaped path several times
* some protective cases and pouches include a MAGNET. If this is your case, please keep the magnet away from your device when using the application.

Features of the free version:
* Baseplate compass with rotating dial and precise heading display.
* Baseplate compass background can be set to camera preview or picture. Very useful if you have maps stored as pictures on your device.
* Bearing compass with 2 Augmented Reality (AR) modes: ruler overlay and viewfinder overlay.
* 4 different overlay transparency levels.

* Autofocus and macro focus (if supported by device camera).
* Zoom (if supported by device camera).
* Field of View automatic detection and calibration.
* Sensor update rate settings.
* Sensor filtering settings.
* Easy to use
* Detailed user guide

Paid Pro-version includes following extra features:

* Augmented Reality (AR) screenshots to record headings and bearings in all modes.
* True/Geographic North indication (magnetic declination correction using a numerical model and GPS or network based geolocation).
* Manual location settings to get the magnetic declination without GPS nor network connection
* Augmented Reality (AR) screenshots geo-tagging (GPS or network based geolocation) and time.
* Bearing and pitch stored in EXIF.
* EXIF data overlaid on snapshot
* Augmented Reality (AR) screenshots resolution settings.

Excellent, complete, accurate. Only compass I've found with complete map features. Excellent AR sighting mode. Good declination controls. Best of the few compass apps that I would trust in open field navigation. Fully functional mils units good for military use and quick triangulation. The new deg/min/sec units work well.

Shirt pocket sextant This fabulous application will let celestial navigation hobbyists take practice sights they can use to refine their skills in sight reduction. A piece of #10 welding glass, cut in half and doubled, held to the phone with rubber bands, allows sun sights. You will want the paid version of the software, so you can take photos of your sight. Accuracy is limited only by the precision of the inclinometers in your model of phone. Moon & planet sights work well. Stars are too dim for my phone's camera.

Totally off Says my sensor accuracy is low galaxy note 4. Not paying for something I can't see work even once.

Good, but it will be much better if it came with back-azimuth & GPS coordinates reading.
