Compass for Android

The Accurate Compass app is like a real compass. It can be used for navigation, location and direction. The Compass app helps you find your way whether you are on a hiking trail or on a trip to a new location. The Compass app uses device' accelerator sensor and magnetic sensor to get magnetic north. If GPS or Wifi network is available, the compass app is able to get true north. The Compass marks your current position on Google Map and allow you to share your location to friends or family.



🌸 The compass app can detect metal around you. A high level of interference from metal represented by high magnetic strength in red color or in yellow color leads to inaccuracy of the compass. You need to calibrate your phone by rotating in 8 figure direction. The normal magnetic strength in dark green color is around 49 micro-Tesla (uT).

🌸 The compass app can route a trip. You search a destination place. Then the app draws a route from your current location to the destination location. The distance of the route is in km. You can view nearby places such as restaurants, ATMs, police stations, hospitals, gas stations, and cafe shops. By touching on mark of a nearby place, a route will be drawn from your current location to that nearby place.
