No install on Samsung Galaxy S3 I used this app before and everything everything worked fine. Now with my new GS3, it says it's installed but does not show on my app list. It's a fine tool but I do miss it on THIS phone.
Ah! I see why I thought there was a problem with the compass, GPS has to be on for you to do the declination. Seems that that could to some extent be done taking position from something other than GPS... But in practical use... yeah... you'd have GPS on... I mean that is the point of this app. ... ... Probably need to keep stuff persistent between exiting and reopening this for some stuff. Specifically I have to keep setting the reference for my sea level pressure altitude ... ... You still need to have red to port and green to starboard, instead of the other way around. ... ... Might I suggest simply swiping to switch between dashboard and compass and map rather than having to wipe in a picker-menu to then click on one of them. Probably would want to let the user choose what to wipe between. ( Oh, and having a pair of binoculars for accessing the camera doesn't really make a lot of sense...) ... ... Otherwise this is a pretty neat app!
Absolutely perfect This is simply THE application for using the GPS functionality on your phone. It has everything from compass to gps, maps, waypoints, routes, etc. It even gives you the option of taking a photo with metadata about the location and angle at which the photo was taken. This is absolutely great for finding your way around as well as later documentation of your travels.
Every time I reopened it on a ride to check speed etc. The values reset. At one point the average speed was higher than max speed.
Did not like. Asus PhonePad X. Mph and several other items did not work.
Excellent... I live .25 miles from the Appalachian Trail, and GPS Essentials + the Add-Ons make my hikes to hard to find locales no sweat !!
