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.
COMPASS & GYROCOMPASS
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.
FINDER, TRACKER & NAVIGATION
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.
GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER
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.
NAVIGATE BY STARS
Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy.

Ratings and Reviews
Really like this app. Basic compass & GPS functions operate without Internet. However, mapping overlay obviously does require this. Easy to use and intuitive, plus simple to convert co ordinates across the various formats including OS for us Brits. Would like ability to geo sign post photographs, or make it more simple to do, if already available. Simple and effective with ability to email waypoint data with a click!
This has it all! It has mils and OS GRID REFERENCING, as I am in the UK these features are important to me and I will recommend this to al my friends.
I am very impressed with this app. I will give a progress when I have fully tested this in my car. Also on the ground.
Not Compatible with iPod touch
The ratings were good and the description says the app is compatible with the iPod touch, so I bought it.
Unfortunately, it does not work on the iPod because the iPod does not have GPS, unlike the iPhone. The app relies on GPS to calibrate its compass. Consequently, you have to manually calibrate the app against a traditional compass every time you switch it on. That makes the app useless on the iPod.
It only cost £2.49 but the fact that it does not work still annoys me!
