Marine Compass


A simple marine compass : move your phone in all positions, and the compass will always stay parallel to the floor !

This app has support for 3D themes meaning that you can select another kind o style of compass, including other interesting objects such as the aiming cube or the XYZ arrows.

Marine Compass can also display your location using GPS. In that case latitude and longitude will be displayed under the heading display.

It is also possible to extend Marine Compass with the optional augmented reality plugin, which will display the camera preview under the compass..

This compass app has no ad and does not require permission except LOCATION for the GPS feature. Enjoy !

Long tap on the compass will display the settings screen.

Have fun.

Didn't dislike it as it's very pretty. Problem is its just not reliable on my Sony Experia compact z3 it seems to be out by 25 degrees or so, sometimes East and at other times West. On my Moto360 watch it's upside down and North points more or less south. shame as I said the way it floats in space is pretty.

Excellent! Tried many compass apps but this is the first that actually points accurately! Simple but good and great design. Nexus 4 kitkat, then LG G3 Lollipop 5.0.

Not a marine compass Marines use gyrocompass which is non magnetic. This one is magnetic. It gets affected by iron.

Perfect Very good for walking as always rocks with you so you always keep a true heading no matter how you hold your phone.
