A really usable compass Happy with Premium version that automatically & correctly sets Declination, giving accurate readings. However "Waiting for location from GPS" hangs forever even after selecting Datum closest to my place. A suggestion: allow manual & selective clearing of Bearings. Normally the first one is for the reference direction which I want to keep. A brief manual would be useful too

Good... Needs some work... Date/time is utc, not local.

Point South Fine on galaxy note but pointing S on LG g pro 2. Accurate in feet and no option to change to meter.

A great app Stylish, practical, and all I could wish for in a compass app. I especially like the sighting arrangement for taking a bearing, and with the premium version the ability to show GPS position and bearing on the same screen. The developer is responsive and helpful. On my Nexus 4 I've found the magnetic field sensor a bit flaky, to the point where I wouldn't trust any form of compass without a "sanity check" from GPS, a map or local knowledge, plus frequent "figure 8" calibration. But within that limitation, this is a really nice compass.
