Have you gone to buy an ice-cream and now you are not able to find your sunbed on crowded beach?
Have you been caught by a fog on trip in unknown terrain and you can't find right direction?
Or, for another reason, do you need to know your actual location and eventually direction to chosen place? And your mobile navigation doesn't work, because you can't access internet connection?
Then you would appreciate this compass and simple direction indicator.
From version 1.2 you can also run Google Navigation to navigate you to the choosen target or show this location on the map.
1, compass function
2 displays the latitude and longitude information (using DMS units)
3, shows the head position information
1, try to stay away from magnetic interference.
2, such as compass point exception, holding a cell phone, and then air painting "∞" to do the correction.
3 speed, altitude information when GPS is not turned on will not be displayed.
Any suggestions or comments, please contact me

1. Military mode - low light.
2. Standart mode.
Both situations displaying azimuth angle in degrees (°).
Click on the compass for mode change.
An azimuth is an angular measurement in a spherical coordinate system. The vector from an observer (origin) to a point of interest is projected perpendicularly onto a reference plane; the angle between the projected vector and a reference vector on the reference plane is called the azimuth.
An example is the position of a star in the sky. The star is the point of interest, the reference plane is the horizon or the surface of the sea, and the reference vector points north. The azimuth is the angle between the north vector and the perpendicular projection of the star down onto the horizon.
Azimuth is usually measured in degrees (°). The concept is used in navigation, astronomy, engineering, mapping, mining and artillery.
Quite commonly, azimuths or compass bearings are stated in a system in which either north or south can be the zero, and the angle may be measured clockwise or anticlockwise from the zero. For example, a bearing might be described as "(from) south, (turn) thirty degrees (toward the) east" (the words in brackets are usually omitted), abbreviated "S30°E", which is the bearing 30 degrees in the eastward direction from south, i.e. the bearing 150 degrees clockwise from north.
North 0° or 360° South 180°
North-Northeast 22.5° South-Southwest 202.5°
Northeast 45° Southwest 225°
East-Northeast 67.5° West-Southwest 247.5°
East 90° West 270°
East-Southeast 112.5° West-Northwest 292.5°
Southeast 135° Northwest 315°
South-Southeast 157.5° North-Northwest 337.5°

If you are experiencing any issue, please contact the developer by mail.
Otherwise, it is impossible to get the necessary information to solve the problem.
Strange behaviours (such as continuous rotation) are due to sensor problems.
Calibrating the magnetic sensor or rebooting the phone does usually fix these problems.
The application just represents the data gathered by the sensors.
