Nobody likes bugs, so I have squashed quite a few in this release to make our experience better.

The GPS tab has been restructured looking for a more scalable design. The compass is now a member of a paginated section together with the outdoor temperature and ultraviolet index.
All areas of the app have beneficial from the many improvements of this version.
