Compass App

Description

A simple compass app that looks eerily similar to the built-in compass on the Fenix3. If supported by your device, you can select how the compass heading is determined in the menu. The data can come from the position module where it is based on your movement; from the magnetic compass, where it is based on the direction you are facing; or from the sensor module, which seems to be some combination of the other two. By default the position module will be used. This means that YOU MUST HAVE A GPS FIX AND BE MOVING FOR THE DEVICE TO PROPERLY DETECT A HEADING.</p>

Heading is dramatically different than phone or GPS compass - not useful

Doesn't work on a 920. Not even close to accurate.

The app works fine on VivoActive HR in Position mode. BUT, the heading is not right. It would be great if the app could have an option to add magnetic declination to the censor data. The value can be entered manually by the user, and additionally calculated automatically based on current GPS location after a one-time GPS coordinates capture & current location of Magnetic North. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_declination

Keeps showing wrong heading (compared it to real compass and fenix 2 compass), using either gps or magnetic sensor

Worked great until the update yesterday now has the wrong direction no matter which of the 3 options I choose. Sometimes shows opposite direction and sometimes just a random wrong direction such as showing north when going easy. Using vivoactive hr and was working great previously. Please update!

Good on vioactive. It says no heading but wait a few seconds and the gps will kick in and then give it about 3 seconds and it will show you where you are facing.

Anyone else ever get this app to show anything other than "No Heading"? Not me.

Works great on Fenix 3. I like having compass as an app instead of a widget.

Slow movement. Not suitable if you need a quick compass reference.

Only used it once but it seemed to point the correct direction. I'll play with it more and update! Thank you for the app
