Well, that's what the option to toggle compass is for in the settings...

I like both the app and widget versions. Having a compass always to hand - literally - is really cool, far better than a phone app or having to carry one of those old skool magnetic pointery things around. It would be even neater if there were more gradations around the edge instead of just the four cardinal points...say in 5 degree markings?

Thanks for the compliments and feedback, interesting point about having more gradients and I will give it a look (will probably be no earlier then in the weekend though) :)

Could've been a great app but because of one idiotic thing it is useless. Who does things like negative bearing? Since when W is -90°?! It's totally unreadable!

Reactie van ontwikkelaar
25 januari 2019, FlipStone

Your inability to understand or use it does not make it useless... 1. The negative degrees is simply an offset... There is N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W and NW. When it's 5 degrees towards east from N it say N (5), when it's 5 to west from N it says (-5). Below it is an absolute value (so N -19 degrees is the same as 340 degrees)... 2. Apparently in the southern hemisphere the compass is reversed, so for this there is an option to compensate for this (flipping it) in the widget settings 3. Also... If you have an issue, problem or don't understand something it is also an idea to contact the developer instead of dumping a 1 star review right away. I usually am more then willing to help out or consider changes.

La encuentro buena, sobretodo cuando uno hace trekking y quiere ver la altura velocidad de caminata etc, o cuando se está en el altiplano para ver la altura en la que se encuentra, es genial!

Cool app, but altitude seems to be totally wrong! Other app e.g.run is showing 503m (correct) and yours 553m. Please correct!

Nice one! Use it every now and then to check my current speed. F.e. when I'm in a boat, hiking, on a bike, etc. The only downside is that it's a widget :). It means that the widget will appear for about 10 seconds. Then -automatically- the home screen returns... I don't think it can be overruled, right?

Well, I did recently release the app version of this tool so give that one a try ;)

Nice app but altitude seems to be totally wrong. When I start the normal walk app and wait for a gps fix, the altitude is 28m, which is only a few meters from the correct value. The widget however displays 128m after a gps fix. Using a FR645M.

As mentioned in the changelog (v1.2) there is an option to toggle the compass in order to 'flip it'... that should fix it.

Good, but when auto lock automatically starts, widget goes away returning to the watch face. This could be fixed.

You're not talking about the natural behavior of a widget? (A widget is only active for x seconds, say 10, before it times out and goes back to the watchface). THat's just what widgets do...

Seems no matter which direction I am headed the compass is correct but the text says I am going in the opposite direction. Also the degrees don't seem to be updating and are completely different than what my iPhone is telling me... Like off by 100 degrees sometimes

Yeah, I think I adressed this in an earlier remark (where the compass seemed to be reversed). As I have no clue when exactly this happens I added an option where you can specify to reverse the compass (option can be set through the mobile app or garmin connect). Please see if that helps

*E in O austauschen (Deutsche Sprache hinzufügen: O=Osten). *Kompass zu groß, etwas verkleinern, dass Kreis vollständig zu sehen ist. *Schrift dann auch verkleinern. *Bessere und Sofortige GPS Erkennung.

This is a good widget which can come in very handy. The only thing I wish would change is the font size for the actual direction you are navigating too. The general direction font is much bigger, but who navigates N (-13) when you're trying to go on a 347° bearing? This is the best compass widget available with all it's features, but the only one that uses general direction as the main display. If possible, please change the font, or allow the user to switch between which display they want to see as the main display. Thanks.

On Forerunner 735XT North is inverted with South on sensor data (outer circle), but shows correct direction on GPS Data (inner circle). See foto - http://imgur.com/a/srQTd

First apologies for the late reply, due to personal life it has been a long while since I done anything with connect iq... Can you supply information on your location? Heard one other report about this from someone in Australia and wondering if it has something to do with hemispheres... The outer compass always directs to the 'true north' while the GPS info is based on the direction in which your heading. But looking into it ;)

It is really appreciated the developer incorporate this apps to S60. This is one of the major function in S60 which lacking of an apps to fully utilize it. Thank you Flip
