True Bearing

True Bearing is a simple app that displays orientation and distance from your current location to some point-of-interest (a runway, a dive spot, a geocache, the 9th green, etc) using Google maps and your mobile device's GPS & internal compass. A point-of-interest (POI) can be selected using the map, entered using latitude and longitude, set from your current location, or recalled from memory.

Possible uses include: aviation, diving, golf, hunting, and geocaching. Set a POI from your current location when you park and use True Bearing to find you car later.
