Ratings and Reviews
Awesome for Geocaching, only one complaint!
Are use a very old GarmanTo pinpoint my location when hiding a geocache and I took some ware around 15 to 20 minutesTo get within 8 feet but now with this app it’ll take her out some ware around five minutes to get within 3 feet! Is a very good app for geocaching! My only complaint is there is no way to easily access your way points.
This is a powerful app with a whole book dedicated to its capabilities.
Trying to use this app to save a position then guide you back is not reliable. It will often point you in a direction that is inaccurate by 180°. Recommend, but beware of its inaccuracy if you're relying on it for more than curiosity and amusement.
Developer Response ,
Usually the compass accuracy is fine outdoors and only a basic figure 8 motion is enough to calibrate it. However, in buildings and vehicles the accuracy can be low due to interference, magnets, big metallic objects and so on. Being aware of that I designed the app in a way to overcome hardware accuracy issues. First, you can always verify the direction accuracy against a celestial object such as the Sun, the Moon or a star. Second, there are several compass modes available, including special: 1) (pure) magnetic - copies iOS stock compass and shows what the hardware tells; 2) (uncalibrated) gyrocompass - a gyroscope assisted magnetic mode (recommended as default); 3) calibrated gyrocompass - to measure or to take direction; 4) car - GPS compass mode that uses the movement course for use in vehicles or while walking. Watch videos our the app web site - they show how it works.
As an old ex-soldier with nearly 15 years of experience, I used several GPS programs, for this program specifically, I can tell you that it is successful and I would like to greet everyone who made the effort in preparing it. I wish you best of luck and prolonged successes.
