With OSG Explorer you have access to currently 7 Mio points of interest in various categories such as restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, public transport, museums, cinemas, gas stations, parking lots, pharmacies, and hospitals around the world. More than 70 Mio buildings are displayed in 3D. Many entries provide detailed information on opening hours, type of service, contact address, telephone numbers, and accessibility for wheelchair users.
OSG Explorer is based on data from OpenStreetMap, the free editable map of the world to which everybody can contribute. If you find any error, e.g. that the height of a building is incorrect, you can use one of the desktop or mobile OpenStreetMap editors to correct it. It's in your hand.
This is the Free-Version. There is also a Pro-Version available. Please check my other apps, you can find it there.

Augmented Reallity GPS Compass Map 3D displays a 3D compass that gets combined with the camera image. Your current location from GPS is shown on a separate map with adjustable size.
Unlike most other apps, the compass uses a very effective fusion and filtering algorithm to combine the values of the magnetic field sensor, the accelerometer and the gyroscope (if installed in your device) to achieve a maximum in precision and stability.
A magnetic field strength warning indicates the possible influence of metallic objects or power-lines.
You can define your own waypoints. In this case a green arrow on top of the compass always points towards the selected waypoint. (Geocaching is really fun with it :-)
New waypoints can be defined by a long-click on the map, by specifying latitude and longitude, or by specifying distance and heading from an existing waypoint.
You can also share your current location and the locations of your waypoints with your friends.
On devices with LG's Real3D technology (e.g. the LG P920 Optimus 3D or the LG P720 Optimus 3D Max), the app features a 3D stereoscopic view of the compass and the camera image.
The app is still being developed further, so please feel free to send your comments or suggestions to the developers e-mail address provided below. Your feedback is highly appreciated!
