Its freeware, not unusuable. Inaccurate by +/-15° I live on sailboat. Gadgets, electronic & float compass are less trustworthy than a legit Swiss Automatic/kinetic chronograph watch that hasn't been serviced since its purchase in 1998. Perfect time, no battery, still glows brightly. Surprises me most people weren't taught to check their heading with an old mechanical watch. Wiki it if you dont understand. Breitling are 5k-USA starting. Well built mechanical will survive/magnetism/nuclear/neutron attacks etc.

I can't get the pro version in Canada. When I try and get the pro version it says its not available in your country. I gave it two stars because they should have been able to sell it in Canada by now.
