With Quickgets Geo you can quickly get the course in which you are, current speed, altitude, geographical coordinates, orientation and weather indicators by using the internal compass and GPS. As a new feature, now Quickgets Geo supports advanced bookmarking, Street View and Flyover live mapping of current position, multiple units, distance, bearing, deviation, 5 day weather forecast, and current radar images.
The widgets included are designed to integrate with ease in the aesthetics of your device in the Notification center.
It also offers extended content within the included app where you can set the units of measurement according your preferences, and an Apple Watch app that enables you to see at a glance the most important data when traveling or moving outdoor, including current address, GPS coordinates, altitude, speed and bearing compass.
This app and widgets is universal for all iOS12 devices / watchOS5 capable devices (even the new upcoming ones), and minimizes the use of the device battery by disconnecting GPS module when the widget is not in use.

As the Apple Watch has not a built in compass, this app cannot show magnetic information in the watch, but by means of computing microvariatons of GPS coordinates, it is possible to calculate the heading of your current direction when in movement. This app does it for you.
• Compatibility update: welcome new iPads Pro!
Ratings and Reviews
A very complete app. Recommended!
This app has everything I wanted in it. The developer was quick to respond to a couple of requests I had, which he is already working on. He is working on complications on the watch for the application. Also, he is working on an option to use the compass on the watch at a slower rate of speed.
The app works on watch, iPhone, iPad.
Here are some of the amazing items displayed on the iPhone: location given by latitude longitude and street address, speed, elevation, direction, temperature, Humidity, pressure, sunrise sunset, accuracy and on the weather screen displays great weather synopsis. On both screens it displays a map with selective layers. You can select a destination and a straight line will be drawn between the origin and destination. The bearing to the destination is displayed.
Easy to setup and use
Quickgets Geo is easy to configure for your favorite units and then you just call it up and use it. Provides everything you need short of a map (which takes so much space you can't down load it)
I like its simplicity. However a couple of bugs I believe. One is that email integration is not working from iwatch app when sending coordinates to email. This is a feature I based my decision to purchase. So it’s a little disappointing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
