Sometimes maps just get in the way.
Maybe you want go somewhere for which there is no address, guided by a simple arrow pointing the way, showing distance to go there.
-Your parked car in a huge parking lot after it has been there for a week.
-A small airport FBO or any other location where the maps for it are just plain wrong, or the net access too slow to rapidly load.
-A friend who is off the grid camping, and can give you only his latitude and longitude.
-A hiding place or rendevous location not at ANY street address.
-A location in the middle of nowhere where a model rocket or airplane that transmits telemetry has landed or crashed.
-A location in the middle of nowhere where a friend that can give only his latitude and longitude has landed or crashed.
You just want to MEMORIZE a location so you can get back to it later, or enter the latitude and longitude of any location so you can get to it now, and simply have an arrow point you there like a divining rod that also shows distance still to go.
THIS app does THAT.
And nothing else.
So it is 99 cents, bug-free, and as fast and easy to use as any app could be. THIS is the app you want when you just want an arrow to point you to a desired location, and that's it.
Works on phones and pads.
Now with support for iOS 11!
Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I was looking for in simplicity. Just points to the waypoint and gives distance.
BUT, measures in kilometers and can't find any way to change unit measure. I wanted to measure in feet for locating some survey pins.
Ok, but needs a lot of work.
Should have the option to mark by feet and also should countdown feet to zero once you are on the marked spot.
I shoulda looked at the reviews first
meh ... it's "OK", but not having distances converted to other than KM is a dumb oversight ... as well as not allowing "landscape" orientation for iPads.
