Description

New! Turbo Boost mode!

If available, when selected uses the Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Compass and GPS for super accurate navigation.

- Check out this review from appadvice.com! "The accuracy is top notch, if possible the app will use the gyroscope, accelerometer, compass, and GPS for fast and reliable navigation... "

New! Added a full page Map View, click on the Globe icon in the lower right to see a map of where you are and a red pushpin of your saved location. With this latest update the map now rotates in real time! It will point in the compass direction that your device is pointing, and spin around as you turn. Also the map now auto sizes based on the distance to your saved location!

A full featured GPS/Compass app with many new features, but still the same low 99c price as the 1st day! Well over 55, 000 happy customers and counting! I have tested the accuracy of this app in many different conditions, including camping and hiking, this one actually works!

Simple to use, just follow the Blue Arrow! Or the compass heading number, back to your saved location! If you want more details, just click on the globe icon for a full real time Map view! Switch between feet, meters or miles for the distance to destination (by touching the m/ft/mi text).

GREAT FOR:

Ski Trips, just mark the lodge or base of the hill and never be lost! Even with no cell service this app will still work on the slopes.

Finding your car.

Hunting: find you way back easily to your favorite spot!

Finding your campsite or tent while backpacking, hiking.

Traveling abroad, where you do not have a cell service plan (you won't get lost!) Find your hotel easily.

FEATURES:

Just follow the blue arrow or match the 2 compass numbers and watch the distance count down as you reach your destination. You can also switch to the map view for a full color map showing your current location and a red pin for your saved location.

Similar to expensive GPS backtracking devices sold at many camping stores, for much less money.

Your saved location is stored, even if you accidentally terminate the application, simply restart the app and hit the "GO BACK" button again, and you are on your way.

Time and Date of saved and current location.

GPS coordinates of current location and saved location.

GPS shuts down in background mode, saving battery power, turns back on automatically when you restart the app from the background.

Note: To get the most accurate GPS fix, use the GPS Accuracy Meter and hit SAVE when the accuracy # is the smallest. If you don't have time to wait for the best accuracy, that is OK, you just might have a less accurate position fix.

This compass + GPS will direct you on a straight line course back to your saved location. As you deviate around obstacles (such as a tree), it will automatically recalculate the new heading and distance (like a car GPS does when you take a new road). It will always point in the correct direction, just make sure you watch where you are walking. Use at your own risk.

Note: The 3G phone does not have a digital compass "magnetometer", that is why this app is 3GS and above only, as this app requires a magnetic compass.

GPS signals are weaker when indoors, outdoor use is recommended, although the unit will work with less accuracy indoors, and may drop the GPS signal if indoors.

What's New in Version 4.2

Now saves user preference of meters/feet/miles on restart, as well as automatically starts in "go back" mode, even after the app has been removed from the multitasking list.

Compared to other apps that I tried, I found compass plus to be much more accurate and simple to use. Does what it suppose to do. The problem with some of the other apps that I have tried, is their complicated and not worth the effort.
