About GPS Waypoint Finder

Uses the GPS sensor, Magnetic Field Sensor and Accelerometer to determine the distance and direction to a GPS waypoint. Does not need to be held level. Free & No Ads.

Normally a compass needs to be level to get the correct reading, but this app uses the accelerometer reading to convert the magnetic field reading back to the horizontal plane.

In addition to the direction and distance to the waypoint, a compass ring shows the current heading. North points to True North (i.e. The direction is corrected for the magnetic declination - the difference between magnetic north and true north).

The GPS reading and the time since that reading is shown at the bottom of the screen.
Use for geocaching, finding your car, hotel, or other locations.

• Store up to 500 waypoints.
• Imperial or Metric units.
• Import and Export waypoints as GPX files.

Arrow colour changes to green at less than 30m and blue at less than 10m to make it easier for littler ones to identify that they've reached the waypoint.

Whilst walking, look where your going, not at the app or you might trip! The app tells you the direction of your destination, not how to get there.

Only as good as the sensors in your device. Use for Indication Only.

Works fine, but won't change to feet/miles, which makes it basically useless to me.

You are really cool. Thanks. Who knows what does "to find the point' mean will definitely live it

M70%
by M####:

Exactly what I needed to help me get from camp to stands, especially when it's pitch black out. Was very accurate and easy to use.

K70%
by K####:

Does the trick. A bit slow to respond (couple seconds delay) but that's expected unless you get an actual compass and or GPS costing 300 bucks or more.

N70%
by N####:

WOW... THIS EATS UP BATTERY (I use Double Life extended batteries). In just 15 minutes of testing, from 100%, it used 30% (that would be 60% on a regular battery). UNACCEPTABLE=UNINSTALLED

E70%
by E####:

Perfect as a simple and uncomplicated "Go to" app that does not require maps and all complications/clutter other apps have. Nice to have the choice of coordinates format. Good for a few waypoints only at the time. Thank you, it is really useful.

nice app ..but it doesn't show list (way points) ..plz improve in next upgrade

Y70%

Here is a cool app! With an interface more or less reminiscent of legacy GPS receivers from before the advent of mapping and other bells and whistles, this app offers a no-frills heading, bearing and distance to selected waypoints (which incidentally may be created by the actual receiver position, by manually entering coordinates, by clicking in a world map, or importing from an external file). Waypoints can also be exported to GPX files. Here is a suggestion for improving the program: given that most cellphone compass sensors are so-so at best, the current heading could be read from the sensor only when standing still. When above a prescribed velocity, the heading could be replaced by track (easily available in "RMC" GPS NMEA sentences). Better yet, this could be user-configurable: "use internal compass" (yes/no), or "use track instead of heading above [xx] speed". This would also benefit the many users who do NOT have compass sensors in their devices, as they could just choose to always use track (fully aware that track only makes sense when moving).

Would be awesome if you had UTM and decimal coordinates too!

No ads, no in-app purchases, great ui, and works flawlessly

U70%
by U####:

Neat app, once compass ebooks correctly it would make a good paid app.

I70%
by I####:

Used this recently during a trip, and it worked great. Simple to use.

T70%
by T####:

Just perfect for navigating to a grid reference - or back to your location - like my old Garmin eTrex, but much better. Clear readout. Accurate. Works at all angles - ideal for windscreen mounting. OK, it would be nice if waypoints could be catalogued better rather than have to go through them sequentially, but more than worth 5 stars.

L70%
by L####:

Great waypoint location app. Just needs nautical units and a sortable waypoint list function to be perfect. Closest app to a Garmin GPSMAP 76 I've found so far. Thanks for free, Keuwlsoft..

S70%
by S####:

It indicates change in menu, but continues to show measurements in meters even after closing/killing and restarting. I have even added waypoints but it does not work. Sad, it is nice but I need alternative.

G70%
by G####:

Not worth the trouble. Unable to find import files on device. When you manually "help it", it crashes. Don't waste your time.

Q70%
by Q####:

Still need to do some further testing, but it seems to work well. However, the feet/miles units do not work as it should. At a very close distance, it stays in the meter unit mode, instead of feet. Further away, it reports in miles as it should. Hopefully, that will be corrected with the next update. Also, no way I could find to locate a waypoint, other than scrolling through the entire waypoint list. (Up to 500 waypoints.) 500 waypoints is a good thing, unless you have to scroll to get to waypoint #250.
