Poor GPS signal prevents usage in current version Don't know why a simple feature such as location via map is behind a pay wall. If you live in an area with poor GPS reception its best to find an alternative as you cannot set your location without buying.

Does what it says on the tin! Perfect for house hunting! I guess if I was a pro architect or photographer I would need the pro version

Bad trial If you allow us to download a lite version at least have it be functional. I was able to calibrate the compass and then to use it you need to input your location. To do that you need to by it. I will go look for another program instead. Don't waste your time installing the lite version as you can only calibrate the compass only. To try you must purchase.
