A magnetic compass with magnetic declination correction for best accuracy. A compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic North. Geographic North is computed given the magnetic North and the magnetic declination at your current location.
● Optional use of GPS or Network location for best accuracy
● Easy calibration
● Show angle in degrees
● Small size
● Clean design
Note regarding device calibration :
Smartphones use magnetic and orientation sensor in order to compute the direction of the magnetic North. Sensor might be in an unknown state when the application is started. Sensors requires a lot of values to reach optimal accuracy and precision. To do so, move your phone in space in a ∞ figure pattern until the accuracy turns to high.
This application requires permissions in order to compute the magnetic declination for an best accuracy of the compass.
