This is a simple electronic compass and speedometer ideal for use in your car or boat. It uses the iPhone GPS to determine heading and speed and displays in either metric or US units.
(Note: As with ANY gps based compass, you must be moving for direction of travel to be computed as it is based upon change in position coordinates.
ALSO: This obviously requires a GPS so this won't work on first generation iPhone or the iPod Touch.)
-Large easy to read numeric display of speed.
-Dual mode scale:
--Scale rotates with heading at the 12 o'clock position.
--Or, scale is "North up" with a heading arrow that rotates around the scale.
-US or Metric units dynamically selectable: Miles per hour, Kilometers per hour, Knots.
-Readout of current lat/lon in the lower left of the screen.
-Pulsing "star" confirms GPS update activity.
What's new in this version:
-Added compass scale mode to take advantage of the magnetic heading sensor in the 3GS. Still retains GPS direction mode as an option for difficult magnetic dash environments.
-Improved style of UI buttons
