About PlaceCompass

With the PlaceCompass you get guidance to a saved location with visual information, with sound and with vibrations. The app does not use routing, instead it shows the direction as the crow flies. The app requires GPS and magnetic compass to work.

Locations can be specified by:
*map location
*GPS - go to the place you want, and save it

The map has a limited memory and remembers one previously saved location. Thus if you go between the same two locations several times (eg. hotel and meeting place), you can switch between these two locations without having to type in the address, locate the position in the map or go to the place to use GPS for saving, again.

NOTE: this is a first BETA. Only tested on Nexus 6 so far, and the German and Dutch texts are generated by Google translate. Corrections are welcome - as well as info on how this works on other phones.

App History & Updates

What's Changed
The PlaceCompass complements the simpler HomeCompass. You can save a location using an address, a map location or use your current location. The app remembers one saved location. You can now also type in lat, lon values (eg from Google Maps) to specify a place. In this version you can also assign names to the saved places.
The app should hopefully work with TalkBack, but we welcome feedback/comments that will help us make it better.
