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.

Very reliable and innovative This app uses the motion of your phone to sense your bearing. That is quite a good feature. Some phones like the Zenfone and my own Xolo do not have magnetometers. This helps you to get the direction even without that sensor. User interface should be a bit better though.

Samsung Galaxy Light Just the simple GPS app I was looking for. I use it to mark where I drop crab pots and navigate back to them. The ease of use and minimal number of taps required is awesome. Suggestions: 1) Add estimate of GPS accuracy to compass display 2) Make the bars on the compass thicker so they're more visible 3) More color options for compass display
