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.

What are users saying about GPS Waypoint Finder

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.

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

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.

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..

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.

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

by U####:

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