LodeStone


A simple, easy-to-use navigation application that gives the direction back to a marked point.

Features:
- Simple, easy-to-use design
- Distance to waypoint
- GPS status and accuracy indicators
- Adjustment for true North
- Compass feature (Clear waypoint to use)
- Option to use GPS heading when moving

PLEASE READ, VERY IMPORTANT:
If the arrow does not point in the correct direction and seems to be in error, you will have to calibrate the compass on your device. It is very easy to do and will restore the accuracy of your compass.
1. Hold device in a portrait orientation.
2. Flip device three times top over bottom.
3. Flip device three times side over side.
4. Hold device parallel to the ground, face up, then rotate device three times.
This should fix any issues with the compass calibration.

Recent changes:
Version 1.4.0:
Added an option to show the heading to the waypoint in degrees below the arrow, as well as the option to use the GPS heading instead of the magnetic compass. This allows increased accuracy while the device is in motion or when the compass cannot be calibrated correctly.

Version 1.3.0:
Added a help screen and the option to use metric units.

Version 1.2.3:
Fixed bug in which the device used the wrong direction for North.

Version 1.2.2:
Fixed rotation issue for all screen sizes.
