I very much like the features, but the calibration never completes no matter how many times I do the figure 8. It also asks to be calibrated every single time which seems excessive. Great having true/magnetic choice and ability to sight and see horizontal. I have tried several compass apps and would like this the best by far if it would calibrate.
Best compass app I've used. I'm a pilot, and I have a 50 ft sailboat I spend most of my time on. I'm an old fashioned guy. My sailboat has over 75 he's worth of GPS and other navigational equipment. But being an old fashioned guy I enjoy using the stars, the sun, the moon, my charts and this compass app for my navigation and it is fantastic. Navigation without GPS is quickly becoming a lost art.
Once I hot the operational side under control it became an attractive tool to use. But it appears to me that I have to re calibrate everytime I start this app. Is that as designed There is also a challenge to understand the difference between true North and Magnetic North. When would one use which? Otherwise I like the design very much
BEST. Simple, easy, smart. Moon and Sun data. ALL of what I want, none of what I don't. I want: calibration mode NOW, done. Vert= backside cam points to where, done. Horiz= top of phone points to where, done. Where is the moon, done. Where is the sun, done. Nothing more- done. I want it to work reliably and fast, done. PERFECTION. Thanks, y'all- for knowing what's best and making it happen. In this case only, also want a popup, Like it? Consider donating by clicking here. Option. I don't like taking free hand outs. Clicking = 3 levels of donation. $2.99, $5.99, $8.99.
Here's the thing... I know my compass points from my house, however this app didn't give me a proper direction. When I face NNW it is telling me I'm either west or east. Yes two different reading after shutting down the app and restarting my phone. It isn't helping me with finding stars.
It's the best compass ap I have seen. It elegantly solves the problem of how to hold the phone while using it. The only attitude that doesn't work is face down (I checked). Graphics are clear and easy to read. 👍
