Commander Compass is an essential offline GPS app 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.


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.


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.


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.


Track positions of stars, Sun and Moon with arc second precision – use them as a reference to calibrate compass for maximum accuracy.

I use this app on flights, all you need to do is window seat. Keep the WiFi ON, with aero plane mode ON. It takes few minutes to lock in to the GPS satellite, and gets map data from the flight WIFI.. worked good on my iPhone 6,.. iPhone 7 has some weak GPS receiver, takes few extra minutes to lock in to gps satellites.

Thank you for this beautiful program when the program is updated because the old maps I live in Iraq is very old and landmarks I hope you reply

The app shows me a block away.


The map can’t seem to know where I’m at. It always shows me a block away from I’m sitting on the couch. I looked at settings but no deal. It used to be right on the money. Find my iPad works better. The green dot with find my iPad shows me in my house but this app. Starting to wish I never payed for this app.

Developer Response

The app uses GPS data that by it's nature will be always less accurate when you are in a building - that's not specific to the app itself, but to the hardware. However, the app was specifically designed to overcome those hardware issues. It allows you to adjust your current location if you need to perform accurate measurements being in a building. Have a look at videos on the web site or contact the app support directly for more info.
