Pretty nice app. I have been using it for fox hunting and find it quite useful. Some comments/suggestions: 1. The compass is somewhat erratic, but I find moving away from vehicles helps stabilize it. 2. It would be nice to be able to set the extent of the map presentation. 3. Being able to display reciprocal bearings would be nice. 4. Adding a 2-5 degree fade on the bearings displayed could be helpful. 5. Color coding lines to distinguish recent from older bearings would be cool. Nice!

This app is great! It's much, much faster for checking triangulations than mapping by hand. And it spits out an estimated location, which is pretty handy. Would it be possible to add an extra decimal place or two when using degrees.decimal degrees? Would it also be possible to organize certain events into labeled folders? This would make it easier to browse through an animal's event history.

Thanks for the feedback. If you go into "Events" and press and hold on an event you can edit to set a name (label.) I'm working on additional decimal places in beta: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.neukadye.triangulation ... please check it out and let me know how it works for you.

This is an amazing idea for an app! Exactly what I could have used this weekend. Unfortunately the compass does not seem to work for me as when I am facing a direction it has a range of about 100 degrees it goes through. I'm not sure if it was my sensor or the app itself but I had to uninstall and get a refund before exploring further. Great idea, good luck in tweaking it and let me know when it is ready.
