Commander Compass is an essential GPS toolkit for outdoors and off-road navigation. Packed with tools it serves as a hi-tech compass with maps, gyrocompass, GPS receiver, waypoint tracker, speedometer, altimeter, Sun, Moon and star finder, gyro horizon, and coordinate converter. It saves your custom places and waypoints, navigates precisely to them later, shows them on maps, displays detailed GPS info, measures distances, angles, and does a lot more.
COMPASS & GYROCOMPASS
Accuracy improvement techniques, special compass modes and calibration methods available in Commander Compass only make it a real instrument – the most advanced and accurate digital compass.
FINDER, TRACKER & NAVIGATION
Commander Compass operates in 3D to show real-time object positions, info and directions to them overlaid over maps or a simple background.
Save current position, add points from maps, manually enter location coordinates and bearings, add stars by hand or use a built-in star catalogue.
Find saved places and objects later simply by following directional arrows.
Commander Compass tracks multiple targets simultaneously and shows their info – distance, direction, azimuth, elevation and estimated time of arrival.
Copy, paste and share locations, coordinates and map links using many supported formats.
GPS, SPEEDOMETER & ALTIMETER
Find and track your location and get detailed real-time GPS data – coordinates in dozens of formats, altitude, course, current, maximum and vertical speed, using imperial, metric, nautical and surveying units.
See your and targets’ positions on maps using different map styles and alternative map providers – plan waypoints and measure distances.
NAVIGATE BY STARS
Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy.

Really useful app
We used commander compass on a recent photo trip to locate photo sites recommended by other persons who provided GPS coordinates. Great results accurate to several meters. The direction arrow and distance display were very useful.
Questions about app behavior were promptly answered - great tech support.
A very well thought out application.
Whenever they have another special sale price, we will upgrade and get more of Pavel Ahafonau's applications.
Great app for locating yourself
Tons of information and fairly easy to use once you spend some time with it. Bit of a learning curve as there are so many options but worth it. Large drain on battery and can have trouble on slower connections. Would be great to have presets for car, hiking, running, and such to simplify setup for new comers. Definitely worth learning.
Compass off by 180° since iOS 9.1
This is a powerful app with a whole book dedicated to its capabilities.
Trying to use this app to save a position then guid you back to that position is not reliable. It will often point you in a direction that is inaccurate by 180°. Still recommend, but be aware of its inaccuracy and do not rely on it for anything more than curiosity and amusement.
