Commander Compass is an essential offline GPS app for outdoors and off-road navigation. Packed with tools it serves as a hi-tech compass with maps, gyrocompass, GPS receiver, waypoint tracker, speedometer, altimeter, Sun, Moon and star finder, gyro horizon, and coordinate converter. It saves your custom places and waypoints, navigates precisely to them later, shows them on maps, displays detailed GPS info, measures distances, angles, and does a lot more.


Accuracy improvement techniques, special compass modes and calibration methods available in Commander Compass only make it a real instrument – the most advanced and accurate digital compass.


Commander Compass operates in 3D to show real-time object positions, info and directions to them overlaid over maps or a simple background.

Save current position, add points from maps, manually enter location coordinates and bearings, add stars by hand or use a built-in star catalogue.

Find saved places and objects later simply by following directional arrows.

Commander Compass tracks multiple targets simultaneously and shows their info – distance, direction, azimuth, elevation and estimated time of arrival.

Copy, paste and share locations, coordinates and map links using many supported formats.


Find and track your location and get detailed real-time GPS data – coordinates in dozens of formats, altitude, course, current, maximum and vertical speed, using imperial, metric, nautical and surveying units.


See your and targets’ positions on maps using different map styles and alternative map providers – plan waypoints and measure distances.


Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy.

Does exactly what I wanted it to do.

Downloaded this to see if it worked for entering coordinates so I could go and find geocaches - yes - once i worked out how to use, it does exactly what I wanted, and a few more handy things too. Pretty good for a lite version of an app ;-)
Forgot I had already reviewed this ... Seems I had because this one popped up - I still use the app for a Geocaching and it still does a great job .. Who needs a "real" GPS device when I have an iPhone and this app? :)

Very Obscure

This has the potential to be a very good app however the developer has overlaid it with some obscure symbols and data that are almost meaningless. The documentation is useless slso as the developer has used this as an opportunity to up sell other features while obscuring the very features you need to understand.

Also, incomprehensibly from all you destinations you can’t select one to track but have to go into adjust each of the settings. Lastly why why doesn’t it allow you to get a read out of your current location?
For what I needed this is next to useless.

Developer Response ,

It does have a learning curve, but get really simple and easy to used once you get used to it. P.S. If current location is not available in the app, then you need to check if you allowed the app to access your location in the iOS Settings.

Can’t even comprehend what it is telling me.

I am sure this has good features, but I don’t understand it. Firstly it doesn’t seem to tell me current location, then to calibrate I have to line up a yellow line, that is really wierd, do I have to hold my device vertical?
Little things, but I just want a simple compass for iPad, like I have on my iPhone. (Apple Pay attention!)
