GPS Compass Basic

GPS Compass Basic


GPS Compass is a small but complete navigation tool, it leverages on both magnetic compass and GPS to give you always the most accurate information available.
GPS Compass shows you distance and direction to geographical location (waypoint) you can define in many ways.
GPS Compass calculates relevant points position by bearing and triangulation then saves the points as waypoints.
You can see the waypoints on a map or you can use the map to define waypoints for navigation.
The Basic version is limited in the number of waypoints you can define, it allows you up to 30 points.
GPS Compass is the basis of the shortcoming Regatta application that adds a lot of feature for sail race navigation.
A pdf version of the user manual can be found here: www.embedia.it/files/gps_compass/man_en_1_0.pdf

Recent changes:
It is now possible to mark current position as waypoint by simple touch on compass display.
Fixed crash with Android 4.3.

Great compass for phones without magnetic sensor My phone is lenovo s820, a mediatek mt6589 based that doesn't have magnetic sensor, so many compass apps on play store don't work for me. This app works perfectly. You need to configure this app to use gps compass instead of magnetic one or automatic in preferences. You also need to walk fast or even run to make the gps compass works as intended.

No settings What makes a compass work isn't just magnatite orienting to the magnetic North pole but a person's orientation to the compass. This app doesn't permit this orientation thereby, always reading the same direction, regardless of position change.
