About this app

This app makes it easy to find the direction and distance to where you want to go. It has a compass that works together with a map and the GPS to make classical orienteering possible. You line up your position (the GPS position) on the map with your destination by moving and rotating the map using one or two fingers. Turn the phone/tablet until the compass needle fits into the compass orienting arrow. Then the phone/tablet points in the direction towards the destination.

* Has a button which when clicked locks the map to the compass such that the map keeps oriented as the landscape even it the phone is turned.
* The compass is resizable.
* Supports both SI and imperial units.
* Possibility to lock the GPS position to the middle of the screen or the middle of the compass.
* Ruler on the direction of travel arrow. Possible to switch it off.
* Possible to buy the app free from ads.

IMPORTANT: The map needs to be online. If there is no internet connection, the map cannot be shown, and the app does not work.

Support/feedback: apps@calmatics.com

Disclaimer: The app is no better than the phone capabilities. For example, if the phone does not find its location, the coordinates and the location dot cannot be shown, and the compass declination cannot be calculated.

I use a lot of compasses, but never seen anything like this. This should go to the top of the list for all compasses. Amazingly easy to use, and the additional features of what can be changed makes it phenomenal. The multiple map features make this app incredibly useful. It has topographical, real time satellite, and road maps. Zoom in and out, and 1 button instant return to your home location. I zoomed in on the satellite map and can see the cars in my driveway! 10 stars and A+++++ !!!!!

needs a way to be able to download the google maps before going to a location without cell coverage. when the app cant access the maps, or it's ads, the app turns the radio gain up to 100% and yields both a dead battery and no directions. if one has great cell coverage, then not bad; but most places one goes orienteering, one frequently never has cell coverage whether on land or water.

This app is bare bones, which is why I love it so much. My line of work is in broadband internet, so we link customer radios to our equipment on towers. The ability to mark tower locations is great. I'm not sure what the limit is on how many points one can place, but the app saves them with no issue. Thanks Dev for this great app, if you created a paid version I'd definitely buy it
