My friend has something similar. Hers works so much easier. Open the app. Hold still, celestial bodies identified. This thing charges extra for that and it still is difficult to navigate.

This is an excellent app, it provides knowledge of where the planets are in an easy digestible layout. For all those confused and why it needs your location, people at different parts of the world will see the planets location differently.

I love this app. Although it doesnt have the fancy 3D UI like most app, but it functions very well. The compass is very accurate and the planet positions are precise. Marvelous
