Description

All-in-one assistant with a map, compass, GPS coordinates to view and share in 6 formats, altitude, distance, sunset/sunrise, speedometer with top and average speed, navigator to your target or along the route and a whole lot more!

+ Advanced target/waypoint editor. Can be also used as a coordinates converter. You can use map to check or set waypoint location and add photo or audio note.

+ Share your location via email, text message, Facebook or Twitter. This includes UTM, MGRS and Latitude/Longitude (MENU>Share my location).

+ Yep, you can use UTM, MGRS or Lat/Long, just pick your preference in the settings (Coordinate Format).

+ Speedometer. Shows you the speed and pace. Speedometer also gives you options to control average and max speed and pace counters (MENU > RESET and PAUSE/RESUME counters).

+ Compass. Instant reaction compass, no delays. Automatically pickups the direction based on magnetic or GPS course. If you mostly walk or drive, you can change this automatic mode in app settings > Compass or GPS course. NATO mils? Same place in settings to set.

+ Sunset and sunrise. So you can plan your travel better.

+ Arrow pointing to your target waypoint. Distance and bearing to it.

+ Export/share waypoints into Google Earth KML or KMZ, GPX or a simple Garmin csv formats.

All above belongs to a basic version. PRO Pack upgrade will add following capabilities:

+ Recording and sharing GPS tracks.
+ Moving waypoints between folders.
+ Showing ETA to a target as this requires GPS tracking.
+ Native Google map with fantastic terrain map, amazing 3D and real night mode.
+ Adding own/custom tile map servers.
+ Downloading offline maps.
+ GPX import and export for waypoints, tracks and routes.
+ Export waypoints and tracks into Google Earth KML/KMZ or GPX.

+ BACKGROUND MODE. App will work in background automatically when tracking. You can use other apps while Land Nav 55 does its job in the background!

+ PRIVACY. Compass 55 never shares your location data with 3rd parties or ad agencies. Location data is used solely for telling you direction to a target and recording GPS tracks and never leave the app unless you decide to share by means of a track export. It always let you know when background mode is on and never runs in background unless the track is being recorded.

! You can use this app on your iPhone as well as on any cellular iPad. **App will not work properly on iPods and wifi only iPads as they don't have GPS (external GPS module is required). As quite a lot of us are using external GPS modules, app is available for wifi only iPads and iPods.

! Please note that as with all GPS apps, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Astounding information at install

sandimacd

I am impressed when an app like this launches into a screen that explains setting options and how to use it including links to video tutorials. Was even more impressed by the unobtrusive star in the upper right window corner that will connect to the developer. Stan WANTS to help by directly responding to each inquiry.

He makes it clear what the $4 upgrade offers:
Pro pack enables following functions:
Google map for the main screen.
Blank map to avoid data/internet usage.
GPS track recording, sharing, pinning to a map and retracing.
Adding own/custom map servers.
Downloading maps for offline usage.
Multiple waypoint folders/collections and moving waypoints between them.
Showing ETA for the target navigation.

I have not yet upgraded and to date have not seen one advertisement after launching three times.

I sorted and read through the MOST critical reviews before downloading this app and saw where Stan responded to each. It's not often that the most critical reviews give a developer 4-5 stars. So I took the plunge. Am not disappointed in the least.

Developer Response

Dear Sandimacd, Thank you for your kind review - a great source of motivation for me! It's an honor to develop for users like you and this is why there are no ads in the app - I'd hate to interrupt your workflow with senseless information, I'll better earn your trust with features that work well :). As you work through the app with time, I'd love to hear more from you, I see you know how to reach me :). Yours and so much thankful. Sending my best regards, Stan.

Easy to understand and setup a route

Col Morgan

If you’re looking for the best driving and routing app that’s also easy to understand and use, this is the best one out there. Plain and simple.

I’ve used the “Speedometer” app for more than a year and it’s great. In fact, it’s gotten me out of two speeding tickets because I could show the State Trooper my maximum speed.

But this app is even better. Speedometer has layers and layers of features but it takes some time program a route. This app doesn’t have all the capabilities of Speedometer but it’s faster to operate and more than adequate for everyday use. Frankly, I use both apps depending on the situation.

Unless you’re an aviator, taxi driver or Auto Rally Champion, this app is the one to get. You’ll like it. It will keep you out of trouble.

If by chance you do get pulled over, be sure to give the Trooper my best. Those guys deserve our appreciation.

Be safe,

Colonel M.

Overall Great App

Whiz_zo

Everything works well and as advertised (I purchased the pro pack). The only frustrating thing is there is no way to have the app not default to your location. If you go to another app and return to this one, rather than be in the location you were looking at before, it takes you to where you are currently located. This is frustrating if you are planning waypoints for a location you plan to visit abut are not near at the time.

Developer Response

Dear Whiz_zo, Thank you for a feedback! [Edit 24-Aug-2018]. Released new version this night where you just start moving the map and the map will cancel the centering mode, showing you RE-CENTER button on top so you can return back to the centering mode, if needed. [Old response 21-Aug-2018] You can control if map returns to your location or stays where you've moved it by the bottom/left "compass" button. Please tap on it and pick downmost option: "Switch to map search, browse and edit mode", then you'll be able to move the map without it being re-centered. In this "search/browse" mode map remembers the location even between the app restarts. I'm available for further assistance and help at stan@blocoware.com or via star button in the app, I'll be more than happy to assist. Yours and sending my best regards, Stan, the app developer. P.S. Having this mode to avoid re-centering, I'll be probably adding a function to the next version when you'll get into this mode by moving the map, and then I'd show "Re-center map" button, as Google map does when navigation is active. I'll be very interested in your thoughts on this.
